I have been making all kinds of new yummy foods since moving to this beautiful land of New Mexico. Tonight I stuffed peppers for the first time (they were filled with tofu and rice and spice). I baked them and served them with polenta. Here's the recipe for polenta, eat it hot with butter, it's as good as cornbread but has only three ingredients.


in a bowl mix 1 and 1/2 cups of coarsely ground polenta with 1 tsp. salt, and 1 and 1/2 cups of filtered water. Set this aside and boil 2 cups water in a saucepan. when the water boils, add the polenta mixture, turn down to simmer and stir for ten or so minutes (until very thick). Preheat the oven to 350 and let the polenta cool for a few minutes. Spread evenly in an oiled casserole dish and bake for 40 minutes.
