When I told Will I was making succotash for dinner, he was like, “Is that like sufferin’ succotash?” I’d honestly never heard that phrase, so apparently I didn’t watch as much Looney Toons as he did. This must be Sylvester the Cat’s way of swearing, like my friend who adorably calls people Timbits instead of dumb (so Canadian).
Oh right, so succotash! I first learned about its existence by searching Pinterest for something that used both corn and beans. My parents run a CSA (shout out to Sunflower Farm CSA!) so I get weekly deliveries of all their beautiful organic produce. But like most people in CSAs, I’m constantly struggling to just use all the veggies up! The best dishes are the ones where you can use three or four veggies in one. Usually I would just make soup, but since we’ve been in a heat wave since mid-July, that’s just not appealing.
