Something New to Finish with

I changed my hairstyle Thursday night and when I say change I mean it. I went in with shoulder length hair, straight across bangs, and remnants of a perm. I came out with this!

It's fun, different, and I LOVE it! This picture was taken today so that means I can style it half way decent myself! (Which is a HUGE deal to me! I am hair styling challenged) I also think it is perfect for spring! Don't you? Spring which isn't coming anytime soon since it snowed again today. Ugh! I am ready for warm weather and slippers! (Flip flops for you non island people)

Friday I saw a wonderful recipe and picture of fresh greens. They looked so good I stopped at Meijer after work to pick up some. I got around half a pound for 53 cents. (I forgot to take pictures until the end. Oops!) I made them today for my lunch and it was delicious! I mean seriously delicious!

I boiled them for about 6 minutes. I like my beans a little less crispy but if you want a crunch boil them for 4 minutes and then test them. I drained them and put them back in the pan with the heat still on low. I added a couple tablespoons of butter, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and sea salt to taste. I let the butter melt, mixed in the garlic, and I was ready to eat!

I am now wishing I had bought more than half a pound! Maybe a trip to the grocery store will be in my future tomorrow....
