things that are tasty  
Midnight snack: polenta with butter and honey.

I took advantage of the cool evening to make polenta (I ate it with sauteed portobellos, dried thyme, and fresh parsley). I left the rest to cool in a cake pan and cut it into wedges, so it was all ready for me to reheat a wedge and top it with butter and honey (on the premise that biscuits are good with butter and honey, and I like grits with butter and sugar, which always kind of horrified my grandmother, but hey-ho).

Tomorrow I might make some black beans and sauteed chicken sausage to serve over the rest of the polenta, unless I get lazy and just eat the rest of it as snack food.

It was definitely pretty good, anyway!

Wow. I think grits could be improved tremendously if they were made with butter and sugar, instead of salt.

But yeah, my grandmother probably would've been horrified by this idea, too.

I had to grow into eating them *without* sugar, I have to say! I still use butter, though. No sense in getting crazy. :)

Mmm! We like polenta with butter and maple syrup, too.
