In the Kitchen

I had a few days on my own this last week. I took full advantage of the quiet to spend some time in the kitchen.  It also allowed for lots of geekery in the photography aspect of my life. Food photos are always a favorite for me.

I tend to gravitate to lighter fare when I am cooking solo.  Polenta has been a long time favorite for me, so I thought I would make a pretty little dish. Here are the easy instructions.
