nelson's famous green beans

there is nothing like fresh green beans from the farmer's market in the middle of summer. you can start munching on them straight from their basket as you gaze at all the farmers market goodies, chase your giggling toddler and curse the smell of freshly fried cinnamon donuts. you are truly eating the embodiment of summer.
these are frozen green beans purchased from trader joes in the dead of winter. they are summer green beans most unsuspecting challenger -- buttery, salty, crispy and down right addictive as kettle potato chips. put a sparkly leotard on these ladies and you've got a nancy kerrigan/tanya harding situation on your hands.
