it's only about 500 dollars
cheaper than this...
sure there are differences...but not 500 dollars enough. Thank you Walmart. I really didn't know you had it in you. (this one's for mary....)
By the way, they don't look as healthy as the picture provided by Rachel Ray. Trust me, they aren't as good with fresh green beans as they are with the canned....and yes, I actually said that!
SOUTHERN GREEN BEANS, ARE-KANSAS STYLE:
4 cans green beans
1 package of bacon, cut up and cooked till almost done in the microwave
3/4 stick of butter (the reason I'm not eating them now, :(
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced (or if you're truly from Arkansas and resist any freshness...use garlic salt)
salt and pepper to taste
melt butter, add: bacon, garlic, salt and pepper, stir, pour over green beans and bake for 45 min. at 375 degrees.
After reading this recipe you may wonder if my hormones have gotten the best of me, but rest assure hormones have nothing to do with it....they are that good!
The next day was spent trying to make it up to Gunlock. We made it and then realized after a few hours of the boys playing guitar hero and DS that it was time to head on out. Dinner at Veyo was fun. The kids had a great time. Afterwards we took our chocolate shakes to go and dropped in on Kip and Lisa. You know, walk up to the back door, check out the show their watching, pet their cats, then knock. It was so fun! The boys ran around with their two and had the time of their lives. Kip turned on the arena lights and they took shovels out there and had a ball. The best though was baby Jessica and Kate. They were playing in the dirt and loving it as if it were the first time they'd ever done that. Totally content! I think Mark and I both didn't want to leave, not only because the company was great, but our kids were completely entertained! It was such a good visit! We kept them up way too late, and after the kids got a ride on the back of the Gator, Kip turned out all the lights and we actually got to see the stars....and tons of them! Thanks so much Kip and Lisa. So good to see you two!Then Sunday came around and we got to see the other side of the family. Steven had his farewell and it was so good to see them all! My mom blogged the pictures of that event here.
Next day, Joe goes for a pleasure ride (as if that even exists) up the canyon, I get the tire fixed! Off to Logan we go. After a minor Gateway stop, we make it in time to feast with the "Red Burrows." And feast they did, but not the fun way. No refined carbs, white sugar, white pasta, bread, red meats, sodas, cream sauces....and so on and so forth. You could see the pain in their faces, they all couldn't wait for the day after the race to pig out! Joe did pretty well the day before the race, only one cookie, a little candy, lots of white bread and Alfredo sauce....:) Then for the really party...ABBY BRONSON AND SAM!!!
I had a walkie-talkie to chat with my friends and my trusty ipod, of course two different phones with two different providers helped a ton. A little FYI, cingular/AT&T had the best coverage over all in the middles of nowhere! My T-mobile has sorry coverage!
First feed zone....not the happiest.
The last leg of the race.....actually happier.
He finished in 12 hours and I think 29 minutes. The results aren't posted yet, so I'm going on memory. He rode the whole time!!! 206 miles. They are crazy! Cycling is becoming one of my favorite sports to support! You cheer them on at the start line, and then show up for cheers at the finish line! It's fun! You don't have to sit through the whole thing...just the start and the end. What's not to love?!
STAYING IN JACKSON WAS A TON OF FUN! WE HAD A GREAT TIME! This blog is getting toooooo long!
Last but not least...the car wasn't going to be finished until Tuesday. So it is stuck in St. George because we had to come back Monday. We pulled in around 10:30 pm put our kids in the car, headed home only to find that we are locked out! The keys and garage door opener are in St. George with the car! AWESOME! Call the locksmith, to find that after hours it is 150$ instead of 40$. So we head back to my moms, spent the night and ARE FINALLY IN OUR OWN HOME!!!!
AND....the sweet ending is that our car part was recalled and under warranty...totally fixed and totally free! That counts for something, right?
