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.
