Theme: And Polenta Of It!
We're getting a nice pantry staple this week: POLENTA. The Italian cooks in the crowd are probably pretty psyched to see this cornmeal classic. It's super easy to make and incredibly versatile. 1 cup polenta to 4 cups of water - you can always add more water if it's not creamy enough. What's perfect for summer is making polenta in the morning, keeping it in the fridge all day, then slicing up some squares for the grill. There are polenta of ways to prepare it (had to!)...recipes below.

Polenta is a really simple and quick side dish or vehicle for any of your sauces, vinaigrettes, and pestos. Slowly add the polenta to boiling water, stirring continuously until it starts to thicken to avoid any lumps. Serve on its own hot and topped with butter, or cool it for a couple hours on a GREASED sheet tray, cut into strips, squares, or cakes, and reheat on the grill or deep-fry. Wild Hive (CO)
