I know not everyone has the time, the tools, or knows how to make crazy recipes. Sometimes I do not either, and that is okay!! Being in the kitchen all day does not define who you are as a person. I know, I am a food blogger, but sometimes I do not have the time or mental capacity for a full course meal from scratch, and that is okay!! This is why I am creating some of these easy meals, I have done it before. Really, there is no cooking required, we are just spicing up some pre-cooked items. These easy garlic butter greens beans are SO GOOD! My husband and I tried so hard to not devour them all, and it took me 6 minutes to "cook". I just hope this helps one person who feels the pressure to bring a side during the holidays but doesn't have the time, tools to capability to cook something outrageous! The holidays are the time to enjoy yourself, your family and/or your friends. Not the time to stress.

Here is the photo of the green beans I used. You can use another brand, or the "cut" version (I used whole green beans). You can also make your own green beans then toss them in this sauce. This is just a great idea for a stress free holiday. I actually used this because I forgot to order veggies for one night and I always keep frozen veggies on hand. I like to spice up these freezer veggies to make them delicious! Also... yes... I dug this container out of the trash because I completely forgot what I used haha!
I guess while you are here.. you need to order my automated trash can!! It opens when you come to it, to throw something away. It also has a scent defense thing inside of it. I am in love... with a trash can.
LOL telling you all to order a trash can sounds terrible but I promise, life changing.
