The fine members at Uncensored agree that facebook is horrible. I want to see if there are things we agree on. For the American readers, does anybody else dislike that "traditional" green bean casserole served at Thanksgiving? The dish that is made from mushroom soup, green beans and deep fried onions. I don't hate it, if it was never served again I would not care.
This could be popular all over the world, but it is a Thanksgiving dish.
I'm not sure I'm familiar with that dish. Does it have a name?
Lately, when I want green beans, I've just been sauteeing them in butter (possibly with a dried, red thai chili or two in the butter) and a bit of minced garlic, with some rosemary or an "herbs de provence" blend, and maybe a minimal amount of cumin. Sautee until they darken and start to blister, then reduce the heat and steam them until done.
(sautee about 7 mins, add water to pan and steam about 5)

Well you can call it Ray, or you can call it Jay, or you can call it RJ....
I like green beans, we grow them in the garden just a little butter is fine. A friend and I were having a conversation and we both agreed that we couldn't understand why the green bean casserole (see links above) was such a "traditional" Thanksgiving dish.
The bland, life-sucked-out version of string bean casarole can be consigned to oblivion.
But, one can prepare the dish in a way that provides hyper-yummy goodness to one's warm-blooded thorax regions. I don't quite know what it takes to do that, though.
But that was Thanksgiving. This past weekend I realized that Hanukkah was starting and there just happened to be some oil in my fryer so ... it was definitely time to make the Official BTX Latkes. Even though these are not usually deep-fried, I jumped on the opportunity and they were hyperyummy.
I served them alongside the traditional applesauce, sour cream, and for reasons I still do not comprehend, kielbasa (making the table decidedly non-kosher, but I've got to say it actually paired pretty well).
Chanukkah Sameach to those of you observing the holiday this week.
