Braised Green Beans with Soy and Sesame pp. 173

Vegetables Every Day: The Definitive Guide to Buying and Cooking Today's Produce With over 350 Recipes      I just got accepted into the foodie blog roll.  If you are visiting me through there,  welcome to my blog!  I am cooking through "Vegetables Everyday" by Jack Bishop.  I do not post the recipes,  but rather a review of each recipe we go through.   This is also a growing experiences for me because I am not a lover of most vegetables,  and I am not familiar with most vegetables.  This cookbook has been such a great book to go through,  I have learned so much so far in the over 30 recipes I have done.  A little over 300 more to do,  oh the things I still have to learn!  I cannot wait. 

     I was unprepared for tonight.  I lost misplaced my menu plan and forgot that I needed to do a crockpot meal.  This meant that I needed to move something else to tonight, which was spaghetti!  Homemade spaghetti.   I still was unprepared, for I did not look ahead to see how long it was going to take to do each step and also there were the meatballs, and everything else.  I felt like I was running around the kitchen with my head cut off as everything finished at the wrong time.  I survived.  I am exhausted after spending 2 hours in the kitchen,  oh well.

     It was very delicious.  The two chefs did not care for it as much,  but it was wonderful flavors for us adults.  Mr. Bishop suggested that plain chicken and rice be used in this dish.   I used my homemade noodles and some meat balls (since I forgot to make/buy sauce).   It reminded me of this great dish my mom makes with noodles, soy sauce, ginger, and sesame.  Oh what sweet memories of my mothers cooking!  Do you have any memories of your mom's cooking?
