We like a hearty meatball sandwich for lunch as much as the next guy (watch for a future post on this delicious sandwich!), but we like to mix up the sides. Instead of chips, today we chose a serving of Green Bean Casserole. The onions, mushrooms, and almonds, provide a satisfying crunch to the green beans. Good-bye chips! Hello homemade greens!
