I’ve started this post precisely one zillion times. How could it possibly take that many attempts to write up some simple Skillet Green Beans and Bacon? Because, to be honest, my mind has been occupied with lots of other things – national tragedies, tough stuff closer to home. It’s kind of hard to get going about green beans.
I don’t know about you, but I could use a good dose of perspective right about now. I recently found some in the form of photos captured by my kids.

About Cooking On the Side...
It’s the recipe collection I didn’t even realize I had – the one derived from the side of a bag of fresh vegetables, a box of sugar, a jar of mayonnaise.
