Green Bean and Mushroom Saute
Fresh green beans remind me of my grandmother. When I was younger we would sit at her kitchen table and I would help snap off the ends before she would cook them. Thinking of that makes me smile. This saute is a delicious (and quick) way to prepare a vegetable side for any dinner.
