Hello everyone! I have know idea where the last few weeks went. They’ve been crazy busy and I don’t even have kids in school yet! Although I’ve been seeing all the pictures of every one’s first day of school and I can’t believe that next year HD will be heading off to Preschool!
Anyways, the reasons that I’ve been MIA the last few weeks have been mostly due to work, my boys, my garden, and all the canning I’ve been doing. None of it looks to be slowing down any time soon, so bare with me on my sporadic blogging!
The other night (I don’t even remember which one) we were all home and I decided to grill some ribeyes from our local meatlocker. Since it was so nice out, I wanted to make our whole meal on the Big Green Egg grill. I had just picked some fresh green beans from the garden so I decided to go along with the steaks, we would have baked potatoes and grilled green beans. AJ was my assistant. He basically ate while I prepared everything and his big brother ran around the yard.
For the potatoes, I just cleaned them and then wrapped them in foil and placed them on the grill which I tried to keep at 350 degrees. These took about 1 hour, so they went on first.
Next I got the green beans ready and put them on the grill. They took about 30 minutes and right after that I placed the steaks on. They only took about 20 minutes or so. It was a pretty easy dinner and the cleanup was even easier since I didn’t have any pots or pans to wash!
Hope your summer is going well and hopefully I’ll be back with more posts soon!
Grilled Green Beans
Fresh green beans, cleaned
Fresh mushrooms, sliced
Heat grill to 350 degrees.
Clean the fresh green beans. I like to leave them long, but if you want to have them to be more bite-sized, cut them smaller.
Take a large piece of foil and lay flat on a table or a cookie sheet. Spread the green beans across the foil.
Place the mushrooms on top of the beans.
Drizzle olive oil all over the beans and mushrooms. You don’t want to completely coat them, but you can be generous with the olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper all over.
Then tear off another sheet of foil and place on top of the beans. Fold the edges of the bottom and top foils together to seal it all the way around.
Place on grill for about 20-30 minutes. At about 20 minutes, tear a hole in the top of the foil package to check to see how tender the beans are.
When they are done to your liking, serve immediately. Enjoy!
Note: You can also prepare these the same way but put the in the oven at 350 degrees for the same amount of time!
