Green bean love

What a great Sunday!

Started off with an iced! caramel skim latte.

Then, Scott and I biked to the tennis courts for a fun time playing. We need to do that more often. .. good workout and fun!

Lunch was leftovers: egg white salad, strawberries, sunchips, and a cupcake!

I spent the afternoon being lazy on the couch, watching Drop Dead Diva (Season 2) – such a cute show.

A quick 2.5 mile run with Scott and Abby.

Then, already time for dinner.

After loving the green bean fries last night.  . . I knew I had to make more tonight. Thankfully, we got another bag of green beans in our CSA this week. Smile 

And green bean fries are soooo easy. Clean them up, trim off the stem. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and sea salt. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 15- 20 minutes until crispy and ‘fry’ looking! Winking smile

Serve with ketchup – so delicious. . .not the same as the best French fries ever (McDonalds) but still pretty amazing.

I also tried to make some coleslaw this afternoon. Another item in our CSA bag this week –> cabbage!

Such a cute little head of cabbage.

So, I checked out some online recipes: found this one on Allrecipes.com and tweaked it a little for what I had on hand.

I chopped the cabbage. Added some chopped carrots and onions.

Then, mixed together:

  • 2/3 cup miracle whip
  • 3 T veg oil
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 T white vinegar
  • Sprinkle of salt

Add to the cabbage mixture and let hang in the fridge for a few hours.

I wasn’t too sure how it was going to turn out. Most coleslaw recipes call for mayo – so I liked that this one used miracle whip. But whoa sugar! I had no idea how much sugar coleslaw has in it.

It was really good. Scott went back for thirds!

Sunday night: cupcakes and The Secret Life of American Teenager!
