It’s been a very mellow day because Noah spiked a F102 temperature this morning, poor thing is burning up but still a happy little guy. He has no other symptoms so I think it’s his teeth bothering him. So yesterday it was Bella who was sick and today Noah, sigh.
Needless to say, lunch and dinner has been something very quick and not very much fun. Dinner tonight was grilled tofu, mashed potatoes and mint marinated purple beans. If you can’t find purple beans then green beans works as well.
4 cups green or purple beans, tops and end cut off
4 tbs olive oil
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
2 tbs shallots, minced
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 tbs fresh mint leafs, minced
Salt to taste
Steam the beans al dente and place in a bowl. Mix oil, juice, shallots, garlic mint and salt and pour over the beans.
