Simple Dijon Green Beans with Diced Tomatoes

Things I planned to do today:
-Catch an early morning yoga class
-Eat a healthy breakfast
-Clean the house
-Think up wonderful recipes for Thanksgiving

Things I actually did today:

-Slept in and snuggled with my cat
-Ate Earth Balance Vegan Mac & Cheese – White Cheddar – 6 oz (this is vegan crack.  Trust.)
-Cleaned part of the house, then got a tennis lesson from my husband
-Thought up a super simple recipe for a Thanksgiving side

Green beans usually make an appearance on the Thanksgiving table in the form of green bean casserole.  Oven space is always at a premium Thanksgiving morning, so this recipe uses the stovetop and is gently steamed for a light crunch.  I didn’t eat a super healthy breakfast this morning, but I did eat this entire recipe by myself after I made it.  That makes up for it, right?

My cat, Voodoo, was clearly horrified by how quickly I gobbled up nearly a pound of green beans and tomatoes.
