But today we're keeping it simple because between writing and mums and normal house stuff and family and dogs and dog cancer surgery followed by dog incision infection, followed by 14 days of antibiotics for said dog....
And oh, throw a farm in there!!!!
I need simple.
I love simple.
So this one is easy:
8-12 small zucchini (or 3-5 large ones, seeds removed)
3 TBSP. butter
1/2 sweet Vidalia onion, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes (or two peeled, chopped tomatoes, but the can works great for this)
sprinkle of parsley (fresh or dried is fine, use more if dried)
Wash and trim ends from the zucchini(s). If you use big ones, cut out seeds. Cube zucchini. Chop onion into normal sized pieces.
Melt butter in large frying pan. Add cubed/cut up zucchini. Fry until zucchini is starting to brown, caramelize.... then throw in chopped onion and caramelize some more. When zucchini is almost cooked, add tomatoes.
Heat through. Sprinkle with parsley and Parmesan cheese.
This can be a great side dish, but if you throw some grilled chicken in with it, it becomes a meal. A really good meal!!!
And the Parmesan adds the right bite to the sweetness of the tomatoes.
Around here summer is the time for quick and easy... we do a lot of sandwiches because everyone's on a schedule.
But that's okay because winter is LONG and SLOW up here and there's plenty of time to languish over food and put on weight (sigh...) over those long, kind of dark months....
Quick and easy sets the pace and delicious wins the race!
