The highlight of the meal was green bean fries. Hold on, they were good! I promise. Alex usually chokes down a vegetable or two but for the most part he tries to stay away from them all together. He actually went back for seconds of these fries! It was a vegetable miracle :)
Here's the recipe:
Green Bean Fries
8 ounces green beans, trimmed
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 1/2 cups Italian bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
ground black pepper
I blanched the green beans (put in boiling water for 3 minutes, immerse in ice water, and dry with a towel) and then set up a three station breading area. The first dish had the wheat flour, the second the eggs, and the final dish had the Italian bread crumbs, onion powder, chili powder, salt and pepper. Once the green beans were breaded, I put them on a wire rack on top of a baking sheet and baked them at 425 degrees for fifteen minutes.
They were absolute perfection when they came out.
Anyway, I did some strength training this morning and have three miles planned for tomorrow morning :)
