String Beans

Every summer we plant flowers, but this year mommy said that we would plant some vegetables too. Mommy and Nick planted string beans in pots, and today was the day that we cut them off and cooked them for dinner.

Mommy gave Nick the clippers and showed Nick how to cut the beans off the plant.

Then Nick carried the beans in the house.

We washed them in a strainer, dried them with paper towel, and cut off the ends.

Then we put them in a steamer basket to cook.

When they were all done mommy put butter on top to make them taste yummy.

And then Nick ate the beans with his pizza dinner.
