I had a ton of Green beans from the garden, seems like that is what most everybody else had. I didn't have shallot's or potato's and I didnt feel like sitting in traffic for that. SO.. what I did was, omit the shallot, added a home grown white onion.. and I didnt have potato's.. I changed that for french fries.. It's awesome! No one will ever know.. if you don't tell them! :-} I also added home grown chili's for a lil "pep".... good for the soul! Thanks for sharing this recipe.. super easy and tastes great! Cheers!
