OK, I couldn’t resist this title. Blogging somehow brings out an uncharacteristic affinity for corny puns. (I suppose I should have titled the last post “Smiley-ing for the Camera”. But that might have been out of control.)
A few weeks ago our friends the Kings cooked us an incredibly scrumptious meal. We enjoyed these lasagna rolls (a great idea that we can’t wait to experiment with), red pepper dip, and roasted green beans, as well as the excellent company of the Kings. We forgot our camera, but check out Megan’s beautiful photos of the night here (she is a wonderfully talented professional photographer!).
The roasted green beans were so tasty that we had to replicate them ourselves a couple days later. This is one of the easiest and most satisfying “recipes” we’ve made!  The key is the lemon juice, which provides a wonderfully zesty taste. This could also work as an appetizer or tapa, in addition to a tasty side dish.
In the spirit of focusing less on “recipes” and more on “concepts” (our new cooking philosophy), here is the basic idea:
1. Toss fresh green beans with some olive oil, salt and pepper.
2. Place on baking sheet and roast at 425°F for 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Douse with lemon juice (to taste) and enjoy!
