It’s time for a veggie recipe!!
During the holiday season, vegetables are super important (in my opinion). When you’re stuffing your face with buttery cookies and rich meals, you’re going to need to balance it out somehow so you can still fit into your skinny jeans the next morning. Vegetables have been and will be the main attraction for my meals for the next week and a half before I visit my boyfriend’s house and fill it with cookies.
And to get the most bang for your buck, add vegetables to the dinner meal!! That’s what I made sure to do at Thanksgiving! No, my vegetables were fresh and not coated in cream sauces or cooked in butter. Just some fresh veggies with a little bacon for flavor!
Bacon is never wrong in my book! Green beans pair perfectly with bacon!
Sauteed Green Beans with Bacon
- 1 lbs. center cut bacon
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 lbs. frech green beans (aka: haricot verts)
- 1/2 cup slivered almonds
Don’t worry, I’ll also give you yummy dessert recipes for the holidays!! I’m thinking the 5 Days of Cookies will happen soon. Look what’s on tap for tomorrow!!
