Polenta makes a great side dish to any meal. I’ve always had it in restaurants but I’ve never made it at home myself. I used a recipe I had gotten from my mom, so I’m unsure of it’s origins, but never the less it’s really good. It’s really given me the inspiration to experiment with adding different flavors the next time I make it. My next post will have a turkey recipe I used to serve with this and together tasted really good. As for my husband, I take it that he really like it, because when we finished dinner he asked how come I never made this before and when can we have it again. Hope you have a great week we’re getting ready for the annual neighborhood cookoff this weekend so I have some shopping to do.
