I found this recipe on the internet several months ago, and it has quickly become a family favorite. I made these the other night and the entire pan disappeared almost immediately! It’s fast, easy, and tasty. It’s also a great way to get kids to eat their veggies…wrap them in bacon, of course!
You simply toss fresh green beans with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and brown sugar. Wrap about 5-7 green beans in half a slice of turkey bacon (you can use pork bacon too, just partially cook it first.) Place the bundles in a roasting pan sprayed with PAM, (make sure the loose ends of the bacon are tucked underneath) drizzle with a little more olive oil, and throw in a few chopped onions. Cook for about 15-20 minutes…depending on how well done you like your beans..in a 350 degree oven. There are plenty of variations of this recipe, but this works for us. Enjoy!
As self proclaimed foodies, my hubby and I love to check out different restaurants! We’re pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new dishes and you can count on us to throw in our 2 cents worth when it comes to reviewing a new spot. Although we don’t live directly in the city of Atlanta, (we’re about 30 miles north, to be exact) we’re close enough to take advantage of ATL’s restaurant scene, whenever we’re in the mood for a little atmosphere and something different. Our latest restaurant adventure landed us at 4th & Swift Restaurant and Bar, which did not disappoint! Located in the historic Old Fourth Ward, (the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the location of Ebeneezer Baptist Church), 4th & Swift serves up delicious American comfort food with a contemporary twist!
Last week, my hubby and I took a quick getaway trip to one of our fave coastal cities, Ft. Lauderdale.
Ft.Lauderdale is a great place to vacation, and not just for spring break! We keep our boats there during the winter months, so we try to visit as often as we can!
