Welcome to the blitz, at Our Sunday Cafe!

Every day we will offer something special, for you to enjoy, right up to Christmas Eve!

Many of these will be new recipes, and some will be reminders from the past. Some are our favorite recipes that happen to be too delicious to leave hidden in the archives.

So it’s full steam ahead to sharing a great recipe for you to enjoy every day during these very busy days of December……this season, eat well, be happy and celebrate with those you love!

As part of our December 2019 blitz at OurSundayCafe.

One of the reasons I chose green beans to focus on is because they are so versatile. Below you will find one main dish, side dishes, salads, and even a soup recipe. In addition to their being so versatile is that they are always available in your freezer at the market or if you are a home gardener, in your own larder. I am pretty sure you will find something new to enjoy.
