Yummy Summer Side Dish!

Last week, Target had sweet Texas corn on the cob priced at 10/$1, so I grabbed five and considered it a great deal!  I used three of them in a dish earlier this week, and, apart from the corn, had absolutely nothing in my fridge for dinner tonight.  So that's how this dish was born. It's not terribly creative, but it was delicious! :)

Sauteed Corn 
2-3 ears of corn, husks and silk removed
1 T. olive oil
1 T. butter
1-2 cloves garlic, minced (use one medium clove for 2 ears, and use two small-ish for three ears)
salt and pepper

Slice the kernels off the corn.  (It's kind of tricky if you try to do it over a cutting board because the corn flies everywhere.  I just held it over a bowl and sliced from the middle of the cob downward four or five times, all the way around.  Then I flipped it over and did the same thing to the other end.)  

Heat the olive oil and garlic in a medium sautee pan on medium to medium-high heat.  

Add the garlic to the oil and sautee until garlic become fragrant, 1-2 minutes.  Make sure it doesn't burn.  

Add the corn, season with salt and pepper, and sautee for 5 minutes or so until corn is tender and starting to become golden-brown.
