The Polenta, and The Poach

This eve I took on two cooking to-do's that I have been meaning to try for year's. I have always been intrigued by Polenta. I love cornbread, yet I'm not a big fan of grit's, so I was a little hesitant to make polenta.

What tempted me to give it a whirl was the tasty looking recipe by Joy The Baker. That girl has some skill's!
Even better the recipe was very simple. The only thing I did different was to use Thai basil, which has a slight licorice flavor, and I added a poached egg ( my other first!) It was a smidge tricky to poach ,but the biggie I didn't know on the first attempt was to gently drop the egg in just before the boiling point. When I did this, I came out with a real beauty! Hip hip hooray!

And the dish itself was creamy, the tomato sauce was deliciously spicy, and the egg was a divine addition! This was a really fun and yummy dindin , that I hope you will try! Lovely weekend to all!xox Dawn
