Green beans Greek Style


Good morning to all of my friends! How are you today? I have a confession to make.

The truth is that I am in the middle of trying to update my posts and recipes. That means that some forgotten recipes have been updated and I added some new and improved photos! The truth is that as you go back to your blog posts you always see the difference, the progress you make.

That’s been bugging me for a long time! Some photos are completely horrible and the way I wrote my posts is, how to say it.. A bit embarrassing. Ok I know I am not from England or the US to speak and write fluently, I have my difficulties but I can see the difference. So I made a decision to make some updates. In the next few weeks I will be posting some recipes created a long time ago.

For example the cabbage rolls in a previous post is an old recipe, slightly changed and I used both old and new photos!!

Anyway, all that just to be truthful!

So a couple days ago I cooked some green beans giaxni. To speak the truth green beans giaxni is in the menu every single week. It’s a food we all love, they are healthy and everyone say that I cook them heavenly! Giaxni it’s something we Greeks use as a word to describe something, usually a vegetable, cooked in tomato sauce! It’s a quick recipe, healthy and delicious! Try them out!!


The photo I took is a photo I am happy with! I like close ups and with green beans I must have shot a thousand photos and only two I liked. Not loved, just liked. Green beans are all sloppy and greasy and they may be delicious but they are not photogenic at all!!! Lol!

With that being said, I salute you and see you next time! Filia!
