Today's picture/Yellow Beans
Now, there are some who would say, a rose is worth a photo, a daylily is worth a photo, and most people think a tomato worthy of a picture, but the humble, garden variety yellow bean? Well, to me it is the most beautiful of all. This is the vegetable of my childhood. People would show up at the door bringing the yellow wonders from their gardens in a paper bag. My mother would cook them up and serve them with lots of butter. I don't see them so often these days. The green bean seems to have taken their place in popularity. But not for me. I love them beyond all others. And this is the one vegetable I really prefer cooked in water till it is quite soft, rather than the steamed, crunchier, probably healthier way. I'm going to the kitchen right now and cook some up. Can't wait!
