02:35 you know there's always something cooking
02:37 in the kitchen. In our kitchen.
02:39 At Eakins home, that's right.
02:41 Now this recipe is really good because
02:42 it calls for the green beans and
02:44 I'm gonna go ahead on and serve it a
02:46 little bit more, little bit more over here
02:47 on the side there. Okay. I'm gonna go ahead
02:49 and start putting in the green beans,
02:50 because it's a very colorful recipe,
02:53 have lot of goodies in it. Okay.
02:55 That's the green beans going there.
02:56 Now shall I fold the green beans. Just go ahead
02:59 and stir it around a little bit there yeah.
03:01 Okay. You know I can't fold you know.
03:03 I know you learned how to fold.
03:05 And we gonna now put in corn.
03:07 Okay it's very colorful. Put the corn in there.
03:11 This is a wonderful dish. It's actually a one
03:14 meal dish. Oh okay. Alright baby got that,
03:17 oh oh one corn alright. And then we're going to,
03:23 we're gonna put in something that's one
03:24 of Curtis' favorite. Now do you want me to
03:27 put that in? No, I'll do it. We're gonna
03:30 put in the black olives. Okay.
03:36 Curtis did you take an olive honey?
03:38 Did I take a olive or more than one olive.
03:41 Okay you got, you can always e-mail me,
03:44 give me a call, give me a call, give me a call.
03:47 Now we're gonna put in the tomatoes.
03:49 Look at this dish. Well that camera shifts
03:51 right off of me at the right time, fantastic.
03:54 Now this is a colorful dish.
03:56 Let me just kind of hold that handle there.
03:58 Yeah, you do a little bit better than I.
03:59 Well I just wanna get all the,
04:03 mix it all in there together. Isn't that,
04:04 isn't that pretty. Isn't that pretty?
04:06 Yes, its looking good.
04:07 And now what we're gonna do is I'm gonna
04:09 put in the seasonings that go into this okay.
04:11 And normally what you do, it doesn't take that
04:13 long okay for this to get ready.
04:16 We're gonna go ahead on and then add
04:17 in the seasonings to that as well.
04:19 And we have the chives, okay,
04:22 this is when they go in, we also have the sea salt.
04:27 Alright now of course we use sea salt here,
04:30 but they can use if they can't find sea salt.
04:33 Then they can us the regular salt.
04:34 'Cause sea salt has a little bit more nutrients,
04:36 but again regular salt would be used.
04:38 And the thing that really brings us to life
04:39 is that sweet basil. Oh sweet basil okay.
04:43 Alright. Now most people when they cook
04:45 green beans, they just put little water
04:48 and swish it. Just soak it and that's it.
04:49 Yeah, yeah, yeah, soak it and go ahead
04:52 you can go ahead and turn that again,
04:54 so you can get all those goodies in.
04:57 You know there is another way to do
04:59 this dish and it is lots of fresh vegetables
05:05 when you think about it you know.
05:07 That's true. And then we got those beautiful
05:09 tomatoes in there as well. Yes, very colorful.
05:11 Very, very colorful. We eat according
05:13 to the rainbow. So your food should not look
05:16 all brown on the plate or the same color.
05:19 All the same color.
05:20 It should be different colors.
05:21 Now you know I serve this up with maybe
05:23 some cornbread or corn muffins
05:25 or a Whole Wheat Roll, we can have it with
05:28 a salad and believe it or not once again
05:30 it can serve as a one meal dish because
05:33 you got lots of vegetables in there as well okay
05:35 or of course a person could just actually
05:37 use that as their vegetable dish.
05:39 Alright. Oh alright. Let's go ahead and put that
05:41 lid on, let that there sauté for a few minutes
05:43 about 10 minutes or so okay and you know
05:47 what when we comeback you will get the chance
05:50 to see the final product, so stay by.
