I'm afraid I was forced to relieve my first garden assistant of her duties. She was a real pain in the ....y'know. Immediately following our sojourns to the garden, she would need a bath, dry, fluff and curl. Way too much work! So I hired a new assistant, our trusty Lab, Bailey. She sat in the path while I enjoyed picking green beans. The panting was a little annoying, but hey, one should not be picky.
She looked the green beans over carefully.
"I prefer Zucchini".
Well, I never. Solo may be the answer.
We steamed those beans up, added a little butter and they disappeared. Don't you love seeing kids eat vegetables?
