Fresh Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes – Try this on the Side!

I love when I can start making fresh veggies to top off a great dinner.  I made these green beans tonight and quite honestly I don’t even think I needed the rest of the dinner.  A big dish of these with Italian Bread will suit me just fine.  Kind of reminds me of eating with my Grandma Sue on hot summer nights.  If we had our Italian Bread with any kind of vegetable out of her garden we were good……it’s all good as the kids say now!! 🙂
