Sauteed Corn

Although I do love cooking, I do not like chopping onions nor do I like touching cloves of garlic.  The very thought of chopping onions makes my eyes tear and burn.   And as for the garlic, well it makes my hands smell for a very long time.  So much that if I touch it, I can’t sleep that night because the very smell of my hands keeps me awake.  Strange.  I know.
Because of these chopping touching aversions of mine, I am a huge fan of the Trader Joes chopped fresh onions.  They are only $1.99 for 12 ounces, equivalent to about 1 1/2 onions chopped, definitely worth it in my book.  I also love their garlic cubes sold in the freezer section.  Each cube is equivalent to 1 clove of garlic minced.  Both of these are food staples in my house.
On a recent trip to Trader Joes,  I noticed a new “must have” convenient food as I was walking through the produce section, a container of fresh chopped onions, garlic, and shallots.  Three ingredients I love to use, already chopped and mixed together, a definite score!  I couldn’t tell you the price.  I didn’t even look.  The time and tears and stinky hands that I saved don’t even care.  What I can tell you is that I used my new little find to make a yummy sauteed corn to serve with dinner that night.  Now ingredients aren’t exact in this recipe so adjust according to your taste and the number of mouths you are feeding.
