Sweet & Salty Green Bean Bundles at Inspired By Family & Thanks to YOU!

 
Why, hello there long-lost friends of mine! 
 
...  Ha! April is already such a busy month, I haven't posted anything is over a week! :(  I've missed seeing what yummy food and beautiful inspiration you all have up.  Also, I have a long line of scrumptious recipes that I've made and want to soon share with you!  I made tiramisu that I took to a gathering with friends over the weekend that is the best I've ever had... my post for this is in the making!!
 
Do you ever stubble on a period of time in the year that just seems to be stuffed full of things?  They could be events such as birthdays, weddings, spring break activities, overnight guest or perhaps deadlines for something at work or party you're throwing?
 
Well, I'm having one of those months!  After December, April and May are usually one of the busiest times for us, and this one is no different.  Everything--praise God-- is all very good things, but all important things that have been consuming my time.
 
Unfortunately my blog here has been put on the back burner a little.  From the start I decided that my blog would be all about my life, instead of my life being all about my blog.  That way everything I write about it purely genuine and from my heart, and it doesn't cause me to miss out on my life.  If anything, it gives me time to do everything I love and then tell you about it! :)  Speaking of things I love ...
 
I really need to say THANK YOU to all of you!  To my family, readers, friends, followers, in the past couple of weeks I have celebrated exceeding my 200th post and my 300th follower!  I have all of your precious hearts to thank for expressing support and love for my blog.  I truly write from my heart and consider so many of you my friends!  I've built some good relationships through email with some of you, and I wanted to let you know if there is anything in your life you want me to pray about, please email me and I will.  :) 
 
 I hope you'll continue with me on this sweet journey of sharing my kitchen and my life with you. 
 
 
 
 Let's get to business! .....
Meet my favorite side of delicious sweet & salty green bean bundles....yummers!!!  I made these green beans on Easter, and we devoured them.  I mean how can bacon, brown sugar, and garlic butter not make green beans the very best they can be??
 
 
You really need to check out this recipe where I'm contributing today, at Inspired By Family Magazine!  Join me there, because I love when my friends hop over and browse around all the tasty recipes, crafts, and articles on family. 
 
Have a blessed day, and I will meet you back here again very soon with my tiramisu! ;)

Those look delicious! We make something similar...chicken breast flattened out with asparagus and carrots...and then all wrapped up with bacon...we called them chicken veggie bundles...original I know!! I am going to try yours for sure! Have a wonderful day...I have missed you!

Leslie said...

What a yummy idea, Linda!! A bacon wrapped entree sounds amazing. I hope you like the green bean bundles, too! :)

Lynn said...

As always you are so inspiring, not only with your food, and your cozy home, but also with our Savior! I will always check in with you to see what you have been up to! Hugs, Lynn

Hi Leslie, My life has been super busy too and I often wonder how I am going to post or what will I post about. Thank you for continuing on! This recipe looks delicious; will have to try it.
Have a wonderful day and great weekend.
Hugs, Noreen

Leslie, French Green Bean bundles look so delish! I have been on a kick of Sweet Potatoes. I am wondering how it would be to add long cuts of Sweet Potatoes.

kitty said...

Hi Leslie, those are a lot like the recipe that I posted recently! We must be on the same wavelength!! Yours look super good. I'll have to try your version out next time...yum!

Michelle said...

I grow a lot of green beans. Usually I just can them. Now I have a great side dish to make with them.Thank you so much for sharing.

Adorable picture of you, Leslie!

Leslie said...

Jen, I think skinny cut sweet potatoes would not only work here, but would taste delicious!! Good idea.

Kitty, when I saw your recipe, I thought the same thing. I will have to try yours out! :)

Thank you, Elizabeth!! :) The pic was taken a couple days ago. Buns are my new pony tail these days!

lovely post... and you are so beautiful ...

Karen Thompson said...

Is there any way to print out your recipes? I would love to try them

Leslie said...

Karen, I'm sorry but as of now I don't have a very printing friendly arrangement for most of my recipes. I want to do something about that soon! I usually set my laptop in the kitchen to follow a recipe, but that also means it gets plenty of flour and food on it, too. :/ haha!

Thank you so much for wanting to try some of my recipes out! I hope to do some updates on my blog soon and this will make accessibility to printing easier, too.
Blessings,
Leslie
