Good morning! I will announce the giveaway winner this week. It has been a hectic week: we visited the Emergency Room (my son got 9 stitches in his eyebrow), our glass table shattered outside, the neighbors are moving, the subdivision garden sales rep kept calling me while we all slept. I think one of these things wouldn’t have been so bad. All in one week. Ugh.
So I’ll work on getting the random number generator going to pick a winner this week. In the meantime, here is a lovely, fast dish that my other neighbors made at several parties. Why make it? Well, I’m not big on side dishes since I put effort into the main dish. Mostly, I throw some broccoli into the microwave. Because 1. Broccoli is a super food, 2. My kids will actually eat this vegetable completely, 3. It’s fast and filling.
The kids eat this, too. I love the flavors and colors. It’s cheap to boot, so give it a try! Short on time? Pre-chop everything and put it in the fridge or freezer.
yield 8 servings
1 Tb. butter, unsalted (Or if you like butter, go up to 2 Tb. whatever makes your skirt fly up)
1 medium onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red or yellow pepper, diced (red looks prettier)
1- 10 oz. (or so) bag of frozen corn
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and peppers.
2. Cook until soft and clear – about 10 minutes.
3. Add frozen bag of corn and stir and stir until heated through really well – about 4 minutes or so.
4. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and you’re good to go.
Some parsley might be good in here, too.
