Cooking Light (July 2013)
It dawned on us last week that we've now known each other for more than 10 years.
TEN years. A decade.
Can that possibly be true? The gray hairs on our heads would indicate it is.
To mark 10 years of Zach and Clay, we're celebrating with green beans. More on those in a minute.
Ten years ago, things were a bit different. We each had about a year of DC living under our belts. We were both working all-consuming jobs. In a transient city, we were trying to make friends who weren't about to move away.
But the biggest difference between 10 years ago and today? Food. Back then, we both rarely cooked. We lived in teensy apartments with doll-house-sized kitchens, so cooking was hard. When we did make food at home, it was more of the George-Foreman-chicken-breast-with-a-side-of-ramen variety.
As we got to know each other, we wanted to cook more. Eating at restaurants all the time wasn't doing any favors for our bodies, or our wallets. So we turned to cookbooks and food magazines to start learning some new dishes.
