string beans
Also known as snap beans or green beans, nutrient-filled string beans aren’t just for Thanksgiving casseroles.

Piles of slender green and yellow beans are spilling over tables at the farmers’ market this time of year. Whatever color you choose (they have similar flavor), they’re marvelous for salads and stir fries, but that’s not all. Here are 5 delectable uses you probably haven’t tried… it’s time to start!

  • Grilled in a foil packet with olive oil, lemon and garlic
  • Pickled with red chilies
  • Blanched with ranch dressing for dipping
  • Dried and sprinkled with sea salt
  • Sauteed with butter and topped with toasted pine nuts and fresh dill

Recipes to try:

Spicy Parmesan Green Beans and Kale
Blackened Green Beans

Tuna and Green Bean Salad

I have realized that over the course of making a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate exchange, a commission rate is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the commission payment. Rather, they fight to win the commission by doing a great agent’s task. In the process, they spend their money in addition to time to perform, as best they might, the duties of an agent. Those assignments include uncovering the home by marketing, offering the home to willing buyers, constructing a sense of buyer urgency in order to induce an offer, preparing home inspections, controlling qualification investigations with the financial institution, supervising maintenance, and assisting the closing of the deal.
