Roasted Green Beans with Almonds and Thyme on Healthy Seasonal Recipes

All things considered, I really loved my high school. I know there are not many people who would say that. That said, there are certain things about the whole high school experience that I would like to forget. Like the time that I made out with my boyfriend in public for for fifteen months straight. Or the time that I thought it would be funny to convince a freshman that it was cool to yell “Wild Stallions Rule!” in the Library. Or all the inside jokes I put on my senior page of the yearbook that were not as cleverly veiled as I thought they were. Oy!

I’d also like to forget the page of our yearbook where a kid in my class posed for his yearbook picture naked with his bass guitar cleverly covering his whooha! He wrote a caption that said something like “I know it is such a cliché to pose naked with your bass, but I did it anyway. And now you have to look at it.” I blanch a bit thinking about it all.

That whole bass over the whooha quotation popped into my head as I was reviewing these pictures for these roasted green beans with almonds. I guess because as far as green bean recipes goes, pairing them with almonds is totally cliché. But I made them anyway. And now you have to look at them.

Thankfully, these green beans will not induce any blanching or gagging. Or embarrassed flushes many years later.
