Zucchini and Corn Medley

I am always struggling to find new and inventive side dishes that everyone will enjoy.  With Spring here, I am hitting the Farmers Market on Fridays and stocking up on fresh veggies.  My helper and I decided to make something delicious with our veggies. This dish made everyone smile.  Could have been the pieces of bacon I slipped in, but I had to make the veggies more appealing some how.

I started chopping the veggies and I heard this little pitter patter come around the corner. Then I heard “Oh, I can help you with that. I brought my knife!” My heart sank! I turned around and saw she had her wooden knife from her kitchen set. LOL She has become little Suzy homemaker lately. 🙂

Once the veggies were chopped, I began to cook the bacon. We like ours super crispy.

Once the bacon was done, it was the veggies turn in a little bit of bacon grease.  It made them happy!
