Yesterday while the kids and I were playing the weeding game… What, you do not know that game? It’s quite simple, who can pick the most weeds in X amount of time. The prize is a happy mommy and a weed free flower bed. Win/win for all – the flower bed, an activity that involves all 3 kids, and mama gets to check one thing off her spring list.
While enjoying the weeding fun, we discovered a spring onion mega patch. As each bulb saw day light, I racked my brain for a dinner concoction to highlight springs bounty.
Sautéed Green Beans with bacon and spring onions
1 lb. frozen long green beans, defrosted
3 strips turkey bacon, diced
5 spring onion bulbs, sliced
2 T. cider vinegar
1 t. sugar
black pepper to taste
Saute the bacon and spring onions. Add in the green beans and cook until heated through. Meanwhile mix the vinegar and sugar. Deglaze the pan with the vinegar mixture and add pepper to taste. Serve immediately, enjoy!
The spring onions added a nice sweetness to the beans.
The green beans and turkey bacon were pantry ingredients from Aldi, my shopping haven.
