Kotah Wotah: ‘Are they special, Can I eat them?’
Kotah Wotah: ‘Yum. Can I have more? *looks into baking dish* ‘There’s not enough mum. What about my lunch tomorrow?!’
Woo Woo: ‘They’re Green. Are they poisonous?’
Woo Woo: ‘Okay, they have bacon. Yup I’ll have one.’
Woo Woo: ‘I want more. Wheres the rest? Gutses!’
Getting it Done:
Get the chopping boards ready. One Red (Bacon) One Green (beans)
Wash beans then put 4 together at a time on the green chopping board. Chop off ends. Place in one of your spare plastic containers
Put in plastic container (I used round 1 litre decor with lid)
Add Lactose free butter, 1/2 cup of water and green beans. (water covers up to first layer of beans)
Put in microwave for 5 minutes with lid slightly raised on one edge.
Meanwhile, back on the red Chopping board….
Cut your Short Cut bacon in half
Put it in the other plastic container
Get beans out of the microwave and put them into their plastic container again. Put some of the butter/water mix into your baking dish and swish it around a little to make it non stick.
Lay out bacon, then put 4 or 5 green beans in the middle of the strip – across ways. Wrap bacon around it. Grab Spaghetti Bucatini length and snap off end, push through to hold it together, then place in baking dish
Repeat however many times to get rid of all your beans and bacon.
Sprinkle Raw sugar over all beans (to taste)
Place in oven until bacon is cooked.
Remove. (with oven mits not bare hands)
serve on pretty leaf shaped plate.
