I don't want to be so over-the-top in my expression of love and devotion for Green Beans that I lose all credibility but believe me when I tell you that I am just one MILLION percent smitten with those Lanky Ladies.
"Hey! When you get a chance, go ahead and pass the Lanky Ladies down toward this end of the table!" I shriek at Thanksgiving dinner, in a tone filled with equal parts delight, anticipation and fear.
I hope they don't hog them all, I think.
I know I'm blinded by amour but this Thanksgiving when I saw a casserole dish of them with festive ribbons of crunchy stuff appearing to pop out of their yummy heads I swear to god they looked just like Cher in one of her fabulous 70s Bob Mackie outfits and in the moment that I saw them I thought It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This.
Yours in gravy,
