Purple Beans

These beautiful purple beans are from my garden.  They are so fun, and my girls love them because they’re purple. The flowers are also purple when they’re blooming, so they’re are a perfect addition to our garden.  The beans turn green when you cook them, a fun “magic trick” for the kids.

Red Wine Vinaigrette

I like to mix up small servings of dressing in lidded containers.  Add ingredients, shake, and done. This time I used a small canning jar but anything with a lid will work. I’ll do this when I’m making myself a salad for lunch too. An easy way to try out new dressing combinations.

Green Beans with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Green beans are a favorite vegetable in our house.  The one vegetable that all three kids enjoy, so it’s a go-to on busy nights.  I didn’t have quite enough beans from the garden to feed the whole family, so I added some frozen green beans too.
