Cook green beans until crisp tender, about 3-5 minutes. using a slotted spoon, transfer the beans to the ice water bath (this will stop the cooking process). Drain and set aside. In a large sauce pan bring 1/4 cup water and butter to a boil over medium high heat. Saute' the beans until they are just heated through. Season with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper. You can also season with lemon pepper its all up to you. My favorite is just butter, salt & pepper.
One of my favorite fall recipes is Carrots and Swede (rutabega)
4-5 Carrots, peeled
1 medium Swede (Rutabega), peeled
4 tbsp. Butter
Fresh Grated Nutmeg
Salt and Pepper
Peel carrots and swede. Chop both into equal sizes. Place in a pot and put in enough cold water to cover about an inch above the veggies. Bring to a boil, add a liberal amount of salt and let cook about 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain in a collander and return to the pot. Add butter and mash to desired creaminess. Add salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste. Excellent with roast.
