My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Quick Mushrooms and Green Beans

Today is the day that my niece Angie at The Jammie Girl is the guest blogger on SITS. She works so hard on her blog and does an amazing job. Please visit SITS today to see what an wonderful talent she is. If you don't know what SITS is just press the button on the sidebar and you will be right there.

Sadly it is the time of the year when I'm lucky to find a pound or two of fresh green beans from the produce stand. But when I do this is a fast and delicious way to enjoy them. Grill a few pork chops and make some of those Smashed Fried Potato things from the other day and dinner is ready in a flash.

See how easy these recipes are getting. I must be getting tired. No sometimes quick and easy if just as good as complicated and all day cooking.

Quick Mushrooms and Green Beans
6 servings
print recipe

2 Tablespoons butter
1 (3-0z) can mushrooms, chopped
1 teaspoon salt or House Seasoning

In a 8-inch frying pan melt butter. Add onion and cook gently until golden. Add drained mushrooms, saving liquid. Add enough boiling water to liquid to make 1 cup; turn into medium saucepan. Add beans and salt. Boil vigorously, covered, until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Drain. Add onion-mushroom mixture to beans and reheat.

  1. Sounds delicious -- I will definitely try this when the husband gets back on Friday. And thanks for your kind comment the other day on my blog -- if we were neighbors, I would probably want to give you all the eggs you could handle. Sweet Sioux and Maggie say hello and thank you for being our friend. :)
