livestrong preview (a.k.a. still life with calabasitas and yellow heart)
I was making calabasitas to bring to work today and realized that if I put a heart into it (I cut a heart out of a yellow squash with a cookie cutter), I could use a shot of it for tomorrow's livestrong day 2010. This is the runner up for my flickr posting for tomorrow. I may have to do more than one picture tomorrow since I can't decide just what food to do.
1-2 t olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1-2 green chiles, chopped
1 lb. zucchini, sliced, diced or quartered and sliced 1/2 inch thick
8 oz. corn kernels
3 Roma tomatoes, diced or quartered and sliced 1/2 inch thick
salt and pepper
1 C shredded cheddar cheese (more or less, to taste)
Heat the oil in a heavy pan. Cook the onion and green chiles until starting to soften. Add the zucchini and corn and cook for a couple minutes. Add the tomato and season with salt and pepper. lower the heat and cook slowly until the vegetables are cooked. Stir in the cheese and heat until melted. This is good as a side with Mexican meals and also makes a nice vegetarian burrito.
