Breakfast Polenta

Breakfast Polenta

Hello friends, and welcome to my life, which has become dominated by a raging polenta obsession.

Polenta in the morning, polenta in the evening, polenta at suppertime!

I made polenta once last year with fresh corn, but never (before this weekend) had I ever made it with cornmeal.

Trader Joe’s cashiers are aggressively jolly and overly excited about every item you’re purchasing. They’ve tried it all and loved it! Sometimes I think they are commissioned.

Whole Foods cashiers are trained to engage you in conversation at the expense of your privacy. A simple “how are you?” won’t suffice. ”What are you doing after this?” is much more common. <– Clearly I am going home to cook dinner. It is 6 pm and I am at the grocery store. Let’s put 2 and 2 together.
