    I just love sweet corn but didn’t know zucchini had a flavor? I have yet to find a way to like that vegetable!

    • Well, it doesn’t really on it’s own, but there are a zillion ways to use it~ I’ll be posting a great recipe zucchini recipe tomorrow. Happy Memorial Day Diane!

    Beautiful array of foods. I eat between 11 AM and 7 PM. I really shouldn’t read your blog outside those hours.😂 I love zucchini and corn, separately or together (calabacitas is popular in NM). Happy Memorial, Jenna, to you and your family!

    • haha, thank you LindaI What is a calabacita?

      • lghiggins says:

        Calabacita literally means “little squash.” The recipe basics are zucchini and corn cooked together. You might want to add chopped onion (an essential if I am making it at home), some type of chopped pepper, and/or tomato.

      • Oh! Thanks for the explanation! We actually had calabacita last night, chopped zucchini and corn sauteed with onion as a side dish with grilled pork!

    It all looks delicious Jenna – I agree with Kari that your recipes are always inspiring! I have to eat first before I look at your recipes otherwise I’d be in the grocery store buying every last ingredient for every recipe lol. Thank you as always for sharing your creativity, either for painting, cooking, or tablescaping! I hope Memorial day was wonderful for you!

  12. Those corn fritters look so good, although I probably couldn’t get them to look that perfect. Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty!
