My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Sauteed Corn and Zucchini

Sauteed Corn and Zucchini

We are having some gorgeous weather in Austin right now.  I just wish it would stay this way and avoid getting blazing HOT!  I planted a few tomato plants and some herbs so let's hope I can keep them alive!  For some reason, gardening is not easy for me.  Last year I planted a zucchini plant and I got two hole zucchini before vine bores took over and ruined a good thing.  I'm debating if I want to try again this year.
It's because I want to be burdened with dozens of zucchini so I can make dishes like this anytime I want!  My entire family will eat it and it's so good for you!

Another vegetable (well, grain) that my family will eat is corn.  Sometimes I think corn is an underrated side dish.  When cooked right, it can be very delicious and it's wonderful paired with other vegetables.  Especially with zucchini! 

I really like to grill them both (corn on the cob), but when grilling season is closed, sauteing them in a little butter works just as great! 
My little boys gobble this side dish with no fuss and that is a major plus in my book!  It's wonderful served along side chicken, beef or pork and comes together in minutes.  If I have it on hand, I like to garnish it with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  It brings it to a whole other level.

This can easily be doubled if you've got a bigger family or crowd to feed.  I think it would also be a great dish to bring to a pot luck!
