Holiday meal planning
Crunch time is here. Today I am ordering groceries (see this archived post if you don't know what I'm talking about), wrapping presents and gearing up for our Christmas services to begin tomorrow night.
As I was planning our Christmas lunch, I felt a little ham/turkey-ed out. So here's what I came up with...
We'll also have boiled peanuts, sandwiches and other goodies in between.
Yum. Haven't decided on dessert yet, maybe these?
Anyway, this is my green beans recipe. Its one I learned by watching my mom. No real measurements, just approximations and two key ingredients, wine and garlic. Here you go...Deb's Green Beans
3-5 cans of green beans undrained. I prefer Allens (the flat beans)
Handful of chopped bacon (I use the real bacon bits for salads)
3-4 large garlic cloves, pressed
¼- ½ c white wine
Finely chopped onion or a few shakes of onion powder
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Bring to a boil and simmer low-med for about 30 min.
What are you cooking this week?
