Fresh Green Bean Bundles
Growing up we always had fresh green beans. I can remember sitting on the porch like Andy and Aunt Bee snapping beans. We lived close to several farmers. To fix our fresh green beans, we would saute bacon or a ham bone, add water or chicken broth, seasonings, a little sugar, and the green beans. The fresh green beans would cook low and slow until they just melted in your mouth.
After I got married, I ate my fresh green beans a little healthier by steaming them. I still liked to fix my green beans the way I grew up eating them on holidays until I tried these green bean bundles. These green bean bundles are now our family favorite holiday recipe. This recipe calls for fresh green beans, bacon, brown sugar, and a little seasoning.
Let’s remember to give God thanks in every situation this year. This is especially challenging during difficult times, but God wants us to acknowledge that He is in control. He wants us to trust Him and be thankful for every blessing He gives us.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 New International Version (NIV) Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
