Zucchini & Corn Saute is a 10 minute side dish.

Yesterday I had two friends from church show up on my doorstep with fresh picked peaches. Which is ironic because for the past few days i have been craving fresh peaches like crazy! But, as with all things in my adult/mommy life, I ask myself “Is it worth getting the kids ready just to go to ______?” No. No it’s not. Not today.

Funny how that’s how I make my decisions as an adult πŸ™‚ Hopefully I am not the only one.

Luckily I had all the ingredients on hand for this super fresh & healthy zucchini & corn saute. It’s a 10 minute side dish that literally gets all thrown together in a saute/skillet pan and then cooks for a few minutes and it’s done! I love dishes that are so simple but yet crazy delicious.

I ate the leftovers after the kids were in bed. Because nothing says “I am so cool” like sitting on the couch watching ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ while eating zucchini & corn saute πŸ™‚ It was good!

I ended up adding 3/4 teaspoon salt total (so an additional 1/4 teaspoon when it was done cooking)

Oregano can have a "bite" to it, so I just used a pinch (about 1/8 teaspoon) so that my kids would eat it. Do as you want.

I have made this with and without parmesan cheese. I like it both ways.
