Do you ever scan through all the amazing Pinterest recipes and wonder how those moms have the time to make such beautiful meals?
Lately, I have been in a “fly by the seat of your pants” mode as I have started juggling more tasks than I’m used to. One of the first things out the window was anything difficult in the kitchen. If it goes in the slow cooker or microwave, it’s my friend and it will be on my dinner table.
So I thought I would introduce you to a little staple around our house. Microwaved veggies. I know. You’re so impressed with my mad kitchen skills right now. I can hear your applause from here. You’re too kind! 😉
To begin, pour your veggies of choice from the freezer bag into the microwave safe bowl. We’re going with green beans for this one.
If you’re related to Paula Dean like me, make sure you add some butter. Now, pop it in the microwave. If your machine is as cool as mine, it has an easy peasy button that you push that automatically zaps it for the right amount of time.
Now, remove from the microwave and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Yes, we do butter and salt in this house. In
reasonable large quantities.
Finally, serve to your adoring family. I am positive that Jorryn’s smile is genuine and in no way forced. He’s excited about those microwaved green beans, darnit!
