Green bean & Cherry tomato medley


I remember I already told you about me disliking tomatoes, but here’s something odd about me; I love eating cherry tomatoes. But, absolutely will not eat the ones that you put on sandwiches and burgers. Okay so, yeah maybe I like tomatoes to a certain point. Although, I really do not know why, though, perhaps it’s because cherry tomatoes are sweeter than the regular ones. However, green beans and I are best buddies lol. I know it’s very early, but maybe I will teach you how to make green bean casserole for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Anyways lol. Since my appreciation for a variety of veggies is slowly improving, I thought I would give this Green Bean with cherry tomatoes a try. It was excellent, and it’s easy to assemble. If you don’t have the fresh vegetables on hand, you can easily change with canned goods.
