Snipping Green Beans

A comforting activity.  Wash your beans and let them drain in a collendar or dry them with a towel.

Take the end off, then the stem, with a little pinch and twist.  Green beans should be crisp and give a little snap as they break.  Then break each bean in two.  Leave them whole if you want.  This is how I do it.

Continue with each bean until you are done.  Have a little chat with someone while you do it.  Or have them help you.  If there is no one there to enjoy this with you, have a little chat with yourself.  This is the time of day when I reflect and get some perspective.  After a busy day with so many demands and activity, these simple tasks can give time to reconnect and feel good. 

Remember to do something that feels good.

  1. I've put up a lot of green beans and I agree with your statement that after a busy day these simple tasks can give you time to reconnect. Very true!
