If green is not your thing...

Are your little ones not into green? No, I'm not trying to pin them as pro-global warming, I mean the other know, the literal one.

Since so many little ones turn their heads at anything green, here's one of our favorite easy, week night side dishes that won't automatically be rejected on the basis of its green-ness alone.

Yellow Beans
2-3 T diced onion (any type but green)
1 slice of bacon, thinly sliced (optional for all you vegetarians out there)
1 15 oz can wax beans, drained and rinsed
1 15 oz can butter beans, drained and rinsed
2 T water
pinch of thyme (but not too much, for fear of making the green noticeable)

In a sauce pan over medium high heat, cook the bacon and onion until they begin to brown a bit. Add the canned beans and water, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen all the yummy browned bits. Add the thyme and stir well. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Have a sweet weekend,

Even though there aren't any "greens" in there....the beans alone would probably cause Evan to reject it. Maybe I could tell him they are something else. He's pretty picky but it may be worth a try!! Looks good.
