Beans so fresh, how wonderful.

Chooks would have been so perfect at your current address. Maybe one day...in the country :) Your own eggs would transform Peter's omelettes from stellar to supernova.

Ahhhhh - the essence of summer.

thank you lucy! we are just beginning to see hints of spring up here, and last night i ordered piles of heirloom seeds to begin my own apartment-balcony-veggie-garden this summer! i can't wait to try this beautiful little recipe with my very own beans :)

What a lovely, lovely post for me to read before work. Puts me in a positive, if not dreamy (oh-oh) state of mind.

I could make a meal of the first bean harvest in summer. In fact, I think I will. As we've just started spring "up here", I'll return to this post just before our harvest -- oh and probably a few times before, just for inspiration.

I think I am in the properly cooked green bean school though I am not so well skilled at finding the right point when they are just cooked so might follow elizabeth david's advice - have you tried the beans with fetta and pine nuts at hellenic republic - it is one of my favourite dishes there

Lovely post Lucy. I love this evocative statment: "Some water, some love, a chat about pulling up their socks – keep calm and carry on - and back they came".
I must try this bean salad. Beans are very popular in our house. We love them just plain, lightly steamed with still a lovely colur and slight crunch. Sometimes I add a little sesame oil if I want to be fancy. I am sure the lemon would be lovely too.

Good ol' Liz. She and Nigel would have got on well, I think. I have some beans left over from making kitchari tonight, so with olive oil and lemon juice it will be. Yum.
