Oooh, it’s a hot one out there today, definitely a day for hangin’ by the pool. Just John and me, since my stepdaughter left for a trip today, and Nathan’s spending the afternoon with his dad’s family. So…a little sun, a late-afternoon shower, a simple, light dinner of grilled shrimps with spicy braised green beans, a 6 pm baseball game, and we’re all gooood. (Recipe posted in comments, below.)

    Spicy Braised Green Beans
    Serves 4-6

    1 lb. thin green beans (haricot vert), trimmed
    2 Tbsp. olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, sliced thinly
    1/2 small onion, sliced thinly
    1 c. chopped fresh tomatoes
    1/4-1/2 tsp. dried pepper flakes
    coarse salt

    Cook green beans in boiling water until tender-crisp. Drain in a colander. Meanwhile, heat olive in a medium pan over medium-low heat. Slowly saute garlic and onions, until starting to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and a bit of coarse salt and simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir in green beans, cover, and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender. Season with more coarse salt. Serve hot or at room temperature.
