Fresh Garlic Green Beans

Fresh green beans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YUM - who doesn't like fresh veggies instead of the stuff sitting in a can full of random juice? If you don't really care or know the difference, this recipe will make you understand. So simple and understated but really makes an impression and it doesn't hurt that it is pretty :)

Apx - 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed (if you don't know this, it means to wash and cut the ends off of the beans)
2 tsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
6 garlic cloves, sliced thin
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Onion Powder, to taste

Bring a pot of water to boil. Add beans and cook for apx. 5-7 minutes. Remove from water and strain, run through cold water (add ice if necessary)

In a large skillet melt butter and oil. Saute sliced garlic just until brown. Remove garlic from pan and put in bowl to use later. Add beans to butter and oil left in pan. Sprinkle on the salt, pepper, and onion powder. Cook for a couple minutes while tossing. Add garlic to pan and toss evenly. Remove and serve! DELISH!!
