Family Recipe Friday: Mema’s Green Beans

Tucked inside one of my grandmother’s cookbooks, in the vegetables section, I found a little piece of notepaper with her hand-written green bean recipe. This brings back so many wonderful memories of visiting my grandparents and dining at “Mema’s” table with her, the always gracious hostess. (If you have a garden, this is great time of year to try Mema’s greenbeans!)
