Guess what? I got a new computer yesterday! After being frustrated at how long it took me to do things on my old computer (a 5 year old Macbook) I decided to bite the bullet and bought a new Macbook Pro. It’s light, fast and the screen looks absolutely amazing. For a girl that spends much of her time in front of the computer, this new machine is totally worth the investment. I also installed Abobe Lightroom for photo editing and started using MarsEdit instead of Ecto for blogging offline. Both are upgrades from the programs I was using before (I hope), but they take a little getting used to as well. Lots of changes going on over here!
In between downloading new programs and moving most of my files over last night, I prepped a little something to eat for dinner. Isaac picked up burgers from Ellwood’s (black bean patty for me and grass-fed cheeseburger for him) and I took care of the sides. We had a ton of fresh veggies from Isaac’s parents garden that were screaming to be used. I roasted some zucchini and squash and made a lovely side salad with green beans. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. It’s amazing how much better food tastes when it’s in-season, ripe and only travels 15 minutes to get to your kitchen.
I didn’t really know what I was going to make when I started snapping the green beans, however I found a tasty looking salad on the Whole Foods website and tweaked it a bit to make what you see below. It turned out to be quite delicious!
This light green bean salad comes together super quickly and has a nice crunch to it from all…
