Disaster Strikes Again!

We interrupt our Thanksgiving recipe sharing to bring you the latest in disasters here at a glass of milk.

Well, this wasn’t quite a disaster, but I wouldn’t call it a success either.

I saw The Pioneer Woman’s recipe for polenta, and thought it would be a nice change from the usual pasta/bread/rice/potato starch options available at our table.

Have you read Heat?  Bill Buford has a lot to say about just how difficult it is to make polenta, so I shied away.  But Ree’s photos were so enticing that I thought I could do it.

I didn’t pour the cornmeal slow enough, as my polenta was lump-city, and I only had parmesan cheese, so my polenta lacked the sharp flavor Ree’s had.  But it was a nice change from our go-to carbs.  And I’ll try it again with my fingers crossed next time.
