I know you probably won't try this and I hope to be able to post a picture soon as I am not sure you think this will sound good. It is an Italian dish and can be served with spaghetti sauce, soup, gravy, or stew on top of it. Pretty basic old fashioned comfort food.


2 1/2 C boiling water
2 Cups milk
2 pinches of salt
1 1/4 C corn meal
1/2 C water (I used about 3/4 C so I could stir it better)
Bring milk, water and salt to a boil. Mix the corn meal with the 1/2 (or 3/4 C) water to disolve. Add this to the boiling water-milk mixture stirring with a wire wisk. Continue to stir and cook till mixture thickens and spoon can stand up by itself or until you can stir and can still see the bottom of the pan for a few seconds after the spoon passes through. Add a little more salt and pepper to taste.
For a different taste you can add Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese, Thyme or other spices that you might like.
Poor thickened mixture into a loaf pan and let it cool. Slice the polenta and grill it to warm it and then serve with spaghetti sauce, gravy, soup or stew. Whatever you like.
