Product Talk: TGI Fridays Green Bean Fries


TGI Fridays Green Bean FriesThe other night, Paul was making dinner and I pulled out some romaine lettuce, some cucumbers and some Roma tomatoes to make a salad.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” he asked, with a slightly horrified expression on his face.

“Um…making a salad,” I stuttered.

“WHY. ARE. YOU. DOING. THAT?” he wanted to know.

“Because we don’t have a fresh vegetable with dinner,” was my response.

This is a conversation we frequently have during meal-planning at my house.

I ask, “What vegetable do you want?” and the response is always, “Salad.”

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good salad, and when I make them, I can get so creative with what I put into it.

However, my guys, all three of them, are a little less creative.

Oh, they can be creative when they try to argue that rice is a vegetable. I mean, it’s a member of the vegetable kingdom because it grows in the ground, but it is classified as a grain.

When I think “vegetable,” I think green or at least brightly-colored and healthy.

I told this to Paul, who listened, because he brought over green beans the next time he was making dinner.

Fried green beans.

They were delicious and brightly-colored.

TGI Fridays has a whole line of frozen appetizers and snacks that mimic the appetizers on their restaurant menus. Green beans fries are just that: fried green beans. Even when you reheat them, they are crispy and come with a zesty wasabi ranch dipping sauce.

I laughed so hard when he produced green beans, and I couldn’t argue that they didn’t count as my version of a vegetable.

They were delicious and fun to eat! You can find them in the freezer section of Brookshire’s in the “snacks” case.
