Let's talk for a minute about green vegetables. On their own, (remember I'm not tight with the veggies) nothing to write home about. But when smothered in salty bacon goodness and yummy flavor-filled mushrooms that have soaked up the mustard vinaigrette? Oh yeah, that is what takes a bowl of green beans from a boring old side dish to a main event all its own. And gets me a lot more interested. You know what they say, everything is better with bacon.
