Tomato and Green Bean Medley

I have a confession to make. 

I don't really like brussel sprouts. 

I know I said I liked them when I tried them for the first time last week, and I did, last week. But now that it's this week eh, not so much. I steamed them instead of baking and maybe that's what I didn't like, but needless to say, they aren't on the grocery list for tomorrow. Phew! So glad I got that off my chest. 

Now, here is a recipe for veggies that I do like and I promise I will like it next week too! 

French cut beans are a new(er) favorite in our house and tomatoes are pretty much an obsession of mine, so I combined them both into a medley of veggie amazingness. (Yes, spell check I know amazingness is not a word.) 

All you need is a couple tomatoes, green beans, garlic, olive oil, and pepper. Throw the garlic in a pan along with olive oil (I used about 1/2 tbsp) and simmer until the garlic starts to brown. Add in the green beans and stir until they are almost cooked, then add in tomato. I cooked it until the tomato began to blister a little- then just added a little pepper and that was it! 

This is perfect as a side dish to any meal and it left us with plenty of leftovers for today... well it left me with plenty, I didn't share. :)
