Never make pumpkin bread during a storm
Expecting the same to be true at the office the next day, I was crestfallen to find our entire side of the street dead to the world. To add insult to injury, the neighborhood Starbucks was also dark. Ok, Sandy, I thought, this just got real. You can take away lots of things, but not that. No, not that.
Once I procured a caffeinated beverage and set about having all of my calls routed to my cell phone before my customers grabbed axes and pitchforks and came looking for me, and then tried to get some work done using only a cell phone, I remembered that it was Halloween. Since I wasn't in the mood for anything complicated and going out wasn't an option, a rotisserie chicken was calling, but what to go with it? Recently, there have been some recipes floating around Pinterest for Green Bean Fries. Since I am lousy at following directions, I will show you how I do it. LAM hates green beans, but can't get enough of these, so you know they're good. One thing to remember: buy more beans than you think you will need, because you will want more. Promise.
Hope everyone made it through safe and sound!
