I was never a picky eater, even as a child. In part, because I came from a “you eat what I cook” kinda household. I wouldn’t be able to get up from the table until I ate what was on my plate.

But I like veggies. Always have.

And while I’m not picky, I can be particular.

You’re probably wondering what’s the difference.

So Let me ‘s-plain ‘…

Picky people exclude what they will eat. Period. They say things like “Nope I don’t want it”. Or “I don’t like that”!

Particular people, we exclude what we will eat, when, or how. So we say “Nah, I don’t have a taste for that” or “I don’t want that right now”.

Drives my husband crazy.

So if I have a taste for fancy green beans, but someone gives me plain ole green beans. I don’t want them…at that time.

My taste buds kinda guide me,  I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but it the truth. *shrugs*

So I say all that to say that after you get a taste of these fancy green beans, you may no longer want plain ole green beans. Or there will be a time and a place for a plain green bean.

How to Make Parmesan Roasted Green Beans

Also, if you have previously declared a distaste for green beans, I now encourage you to try them again… with a little Parmesan.  And a little garlic. They just may change your mind. And your life.
