Side Dish

Confetti Corn – Easy and Fast Side Dish

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.

Confetti Corn
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.
