Quick Mushrooms and Green Beans

Sadly it is the time of the year when I'm lucky to find a pound or two of fresh green beans from the produce stand.  But when I do this is a fast and delicious way to enjoy them.  Grill a few pork chops and make some of those Smashed Fried Potato things from the other day and dinner is ready in a flash.

See how easy these recipes are getting.  I must be getting tired.  No sometimes quick and easy if just as good as complicated and all day cooking.
