On Friday I posted about my favorites and one of my favorites was a brie appetizer that I mentioned I might be enjoying on the porch with wine. Well, brie happened and so did wine but I didn’t end up making the appetizer that I posted. You see, I swung by Whole Foods and picked up a brie that was too good to mess up. So I simple paired it with some sundried tomatoes, dried apricots and rosemary lentil crackers (also from Whole Foods).
So delicious. We also toasted with champagne to celebrate life in general.
For dinner, mahi for her and a ribeye for him. But the real star of the show was the bacon-wrapped bundles of homegrown green beans.
I cooked the green beans in boiling water for about 8 minutes then drained. While the green beans were cooking, I cooked the bacon on the stove top (but not until it’s cooked through!). Take 6 or 7 green beans and wrap with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place in a dish and pour over a butter, brown sugar, soy sauce and garlic mixture. Bake. Take in the amazing smell. Devour.
Those green beans were insane. Salty sweet tender green beans.
It doesn’t get much better than that.
