Last week I discovered magazine reading on the iPad (I am maybe a little behind the times, but I am usually so absorbed in book reading that I don’t explore other things.  Did you know the internet has videos!? Ha, just kidding.  I have known about those for several months now.  I am totally hip.)

I have a mental block about posting side dishes.  I feel like I really need to plan out peoples meals.  It fulfills me, which is a totally normal thing and not weird at all, if you were wondering. So to make me feel better I will tell you that I made this with cajun rubbed

Vegan Marsala (over Green Beans)

Last week I had a hankering for Marsala sauce.  I think I saw someone eating it on TV, or I read about it in a book, and I needed it.  Does that ever happen to anyone else? So I had some yummy fresh green beans hanging around, and they spoke to me.  They told me
