"Good Green Beans"

This is my "go to" green bean dish. They are very similar to what Furr's Cafeteria had (we don't have one close any more). My #4 granddaughter named them "Good green beans". She still asks for them and she is a Jr in college @ Texas State (Go Bobcats) now. They look so much prettier than the cut green beans, but you can use those too if you want (less expensive).
