We eat differently nowadays and are more adventurous with food, probably because of blogging. Yet, my memories of my childhood food is a positive one. Something about it was nurturing and loving. Perhaps, because Mom was a Stay At Home Mom. It was great knowing that I would come home from school and Mom was there, waiting for me.
My oldest children at a SAHM and my younger did not. I wish I could see the differences in them because of it. That is, if there were differences.
Anyway, I love corn and always did. I must have had it as a child.
Corn and Tomato Saute
This wins for the easiest recipe to make and yet it excels as a side dish.
Pan Sauteed Corn and Tomatoes adapted from Poor Girl Gourmet
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cups corn kernels
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
ground black pepper
Heat olive oil in skillet and fry onion. (I wanted a crisp onion, browned and even slightly overcooked. I love them, this way.)
Add corn and cook for two minutes.
Add tomatoes and cook for another 3 minutes.
Remove from eat and add salt and pepper to taste.
Top with shaving of basil.
