New Cooking Video....Peas & Corn Succotash

Those of you that have been following me for awhile know that I recently redesigned my blog.  I hope everyone is enjoying the new look.  I know I am.

Well I've got something else new...a cooking video. I've done a few video's before; but thanks to my wonderful husband the video format has been redesigned to match the blog's new look.  I'm excited to share this with you and look forward to your feedback.

The recipe below for Peas and Corn Succotash is something my husband and I put together to incorporate more veggies into our meals.  Succotash is best described as a stew of veggies; most often corn and lima beans. Like most other stews you can easily customize succotash to include your favorite vegetables.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Peas & Corn Succotash
1 carrot, diced
1 onion, diced
1 celery, diced
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
¼ cup olive oil
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
¼ cup stock

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add your chopped vegetables and cook until tender.

Add frozen peas and corn and cook two minutes.

Add stock and thyme. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook an additional two minutes or until heated through.
