A recipe for no apparent reason

I invented something today and it's extremely good and I want to share. No politics. No weird goings-on. Just a recipe.

Maple Zucchini and Apples
(Serves ?)

1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small onion, sliced thin
1 medium sized zucchini, sliced thin
1 small apple, pared, cored, and cut into wedges
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon maple syrup (do not substitute maple-flavored or "breakfast" or "pancake" syrup.)

Melt butter in saute pan over medium heat. Add oil the minute the butter has melted completely, then add onion. Saute until softened, then add zucchini and continue to saute until one side is browned. Flip the zucchini over and add apple to the pan. Continue to saute until the other side of the zucchini is browned and the apple is soft. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add maple syrup and swirl pan to be sure everything is combined. Allow to sit a few moments before serving.
