It’s been a while but we are finally home from traveling and have completed our holiday entertaining. When we returned home from our travels, we saw that the green beans in our garden had overgrown. To make them tender, I stewed the green beans in tomatoes. Otherwise, they are too chewy. Here is the recipe:
