Sauteed Corn, Bacon, and Scallions. I add jalapenos for a little extra flavor. I cook the bacon and drain a little fat. Then I add the jalapenos and scallion whites. Cook a little and then add the corn. Add the scallion greens and the very end.
Braised Potatoes - A variety of baby potatoes is sauteed with onion, shallot, and rosemary until browned, and then cooked in chicken stock until soft. These potatoes can be made a day in advance and reheated in the oven before dinner.
