Tuesday, stupid polenta

  Kids’ lunches. Looked yummy. The boy thought it was too tomatoey. Veggie pasta salad, cinnamon apples, and chicken sausage.  
 This took nearly two hours. I was lied to. I copied a recipe for polenta cooked in the rice cooker. It didn’t. I followed the instructions exactly, then opened the cooker and saw a big lake of chicken broth. I am hating life right now. So, do my usual polenta recipe, which takes about ten minutes to bring it up to boiling, then 20 to simmer. Should have done that in the first place. 

But take a look at that sauce. My one happy spot was when the Girl asked me if the leaves in it were just herbs (in a very suspicious tone). I said, “no, they’re  collards.” She said, “Oh, OK!” In a happy tone. How bizarre, huh? But collards are awesome simmered all day in a red sauce. Try it, you’ll love it. 😉

Out of the box:

  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Broccoli
  • Bell pepper (last week’s)
  • Cherry tomato (all gone!)
  • Collards (all gone!)
  • Baby leeks
