undocumented food

Wow. I realize that I haven't posted any food since early March. This does not, of course, mean that we have not been eating. We've definitely been eating plenty, no matter how monotonous our eating might seem (couscous and white beans anyone?).

So, as I work through the newer recipes I want to try, I'll also be posting some of the simple meals we've been making and eating for the last six weeks.

First up: baked polenta rounds with squash and cheese.

This was super-simple. The most difficult part was slicing the polenta into evenly-sized discs. I just bought a log of prepared polenta from the grocery store and used that. I believe I baked everything at the same time. This was so easy but definitely tasty. I can't remember what else we had that night, but Cardo did request that we make this again. I'd really like to try making soft polenta on my own. I have some recipes for that. I'm thinking to just add some vegetables (green onions, squash, carrots, spinach,...) and cheese to that too. Stir it up and we're ready to eat.

If you all have any food thoughts to share, to inspire me, I'm always open to suggestions.

And, now, I'm off to make rice and beans.

I have a lot of students who are "undocumented" so this title caught my eye. I had to laugh a little. The polenta looks good. I think I might have to make some this week. yum.

Yeah, I've been giving a lot of thought to the terms "undocumented," "unauthorized" and "illegal" lately.

I take pictures of my food still, most of the time, but the meals don't feel finished (or legitimate or something) until I post the pictures.
