These Blistered Green Beans can transform boring vegetables into a scrumptious side dish.Still searching for a side dish for your holiday table?  Look no further.  These are easy to make and one you will want to make over and over again.  I mean, really, think about it. This dish is made in a skillet so it frees up your oven for a big turkey, or roast.

This holiday season, I am not cooking, but I need to bring a dish to the party.  This one has already been requested.  So this one it is.  We have huge family gatherings, with lots of conversation.  People talking over people.  Lots of laughter and memories that last a lifetime.

These Blistered Green Beans can transform boring vegetables into a scrumptious side dish.Cooking for the family can be a double edge sword.  On one hand, I get to plan the menu and don’t have to drive anywhere.  On the other hand, cooking for a crowd is getting tiring on my back and my feet.

So these days, as much as I enjoy cooking, having someone do the crowd cooking is a blessing. All I need to do is prepare one dish and show up.  Can you blame me?
