This past week has been one of my better eating weeks. I’ve eaten lots of salad, veggies, quinoa, organic bars, and low-fat meats.   I feel great, and I suspect that my healthy eating partially led to my great training week too (including getting up EARLY a few times!).

However, there was one exception to the healthy eating….

Last weekend we hosted a BBQ for our friends so at the request of my hubby, I made my famous green beans that I sauteed in (wait for it)…. bacon grease.  Yes – the only way I can get my hubby to eat beans is drown them in bacon grease.  And guess what? We served them and not a single green bean was left at the end of the evening!  

So because these were so well received, I figured that I would share the recipe with you – you can thank me later:

    My mom used to cook green beans in bacon grease, too… looks delicious!

    1. Nice! My mom used to just put a spice on them (paprika? Oregano?) which only made them taste worst on my little girl opinion. Though now I can eat them raw, cold, spiced etc…
