The name of this dish indicates that yes, we still have beans coming off the vines in the garden. And that is a very true statement! The second planting is also producing, which puts me on high alert for cooking them in new and different ways, because as luck would have it, we are also running out of freezer space.....

But the whole "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" mentality is but a shifting of gears and in the process, a delicious dinner was created. This is also a basic lesson in the combining of leftovers, and getting a whole new meal out of them in the process!
When I looked into the refrigerator what I had was some leftover roasted chicken, some leftover rice and green beans from the garden. Separately not one of these is a star, but together they are a shining example of how to assemble a dinner. Otherwise know as, cook with what you have.
