Garlicky Green Beans

Recall a few days ago, when I mentioned that Fall had arrived and we were bringing out the fall favorites like cornbread?  Well, it's gone--reverted back to summer--which for us, had just ended three weeks ago!  But look at the forecast (or just step outside):  94 degrees F.  Indian summer ought to come in December for us.  Yes, I am running my AC.  And what's really annoying?  I just barely (as in last week!) put away the summer clothes...oh well, this recipe is actually a good summer treat as well.

Garlicky Green Beans

3 tbsp. cold pressed olive oil
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper

In a cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat.  Add green beans.  stirring often, saute beans for 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook one minute more.  Add a dash of water to the pan (a couple tbsp.) and cover.  Turn off heat and let sit 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add salt and pepper and serve.
