Roasted Green Beans & Mushrooms Recipe

I was just sitting at my husbands office desk trying to get some editing done on my laptop and all of a sudden the screen saver popped up on the desk top we have there. 

I know some of you out there might be really attached to your shooting star screen savers, or colored bubbles floating across your screen, or maybe you just like to see your name bouncing across the screen. At our house we like to have the computer pull old pictures we’ve downloaded and run through a little slide show.

So as I was sitting at the desk and the screen saver came on I couldn’t help but look. The pictures that popped up were of our anniversary trip to Mexico from last year.

All of a sudden I saw a picture of me zip lining upside down, then Mike holding onto a dolphins fin and being pulled across the water, a romantic candle light dinner on the beach, and then a picture of me in my bikini… ooopss sorry that was for the hubbie. 🙂 hehe

Anyways, as I was watching the slideshow I couldn’t help but smile. So many memories filled my mind.. feelings of thankfulness filled my heart.

Warning.. I’m about to get mushy. 🙂

Looking at those pictures just made me realize how blessed I am to be married to Mike.

He loves with everything he has. He puts his heart and soul into whatever he’s doing. He takes my hand and walks me down paths I am scared to go down alone. He is patient with me as I have my delirious moments. Laughs at my corny jokes and gets my weird sense of humor. Pushes me outside my comfort zone to help me grow. He has helped me through some of the toughest times of my life, including losing a child. Holds me when he knows I just need to cry and get it out. He totally is the love of my life!

Looking at those pictures just reminded me that God knew exactly what he was doing when he put us together. And He knows exactly what He is doing as we navigate through this life. He is not surprised at what life throws us… not one bit. But I’m pretty sure if He gave me Mike, I’m ok with whatever plan He has for me!

Just needed to throw in a little “thankfulness” since… well.. its Thanksgiving next week people!

Where has the time gone? I feel like I was just starting my new years resolutions and its already almost Christmas! Shows you how well I’ve done at my resolutions. *sigh* Well, actually the only one I haven’t been great at is the whole “gonna run a half marathon” thing. Which I am SOOO doing next year… after I start to like running.

Ok… back to the whole thanksgiving thing. Wow! Going on tangents today.  Todays recipe is a lighter healthier version of the ever so popular Green Bean Casserole. Except this is not a casserole loaded with sodium… its better! Roasted Green Beans seasoned with fresh lemon juice and thyme and roasted along side baby portabella mushrooms.

In the words of my dear father …. “YEAH BABY!”

So stinking easy to make and totally delivers on flavor.  The green beans are cooked through but still have a crunchiness to them. De-lish!

My thoughts… if you made this dish instead of green bean casserole for thanksgiving… you can have an extra slice of pie!

Enough said.

Ready … go make it! 🙂

    I’ve never thought to roast green beans – but I love this! Thyme and mushrooms were made for eachother, it’s really the best combo! This recipe looks great – I may have to make it more often than for just Thanksgiving!
