While they don’t really need any fancying up and are perfectly fine as a crunchy snack on their own, sometimes green beans like to put on their high heels and head down to Beale Street or some other wild place. When that mood hits and your green beans are singing out country hits like, “I don’t know why you don’t take me downtown, like you got anywhere better to be!” Respond with all the flavors and a frying pan.
