I think I’ve mentioned before how we sold our house and moved to our cabin a few years back. The big house had bookcases for days and I kept them all filled. Now I’m a regular library user. Fortunately we do have the best library in the world here on the Island. But there are some things I want for my very own and that’s cookbooks. I have a rule now: I check out the book twice and if I love it after two check-outs, it’s OK to buy it. And trust me, it’s got to be good because the cabin is small and does not have a lot of bookcases.
Another digression, sorry. This is all about Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook: Cravings: Hungry for More. I loved her first book. She cooks the way I do, easy squeezy. Her new book came out this year and I’ve checked it out from the library the required two times and it’s so good, I bought it last week. There’s some really good looking, laid back recipes that I can’t wait to try. Gluten Free Girl was up today and I decided to feed her the Polenta, mushrooms and eggs. Nummy!
I didn’t actually use Chrissy’s recipe; I have a polenta/cornmeal mush/grits recipe I really like that I shared last month. Basically, I used her picture and that’s why I have to break down and buy cookbooks. I would never have thought about using polenta as the base for my eggs. It really did need a kick up though. Just an egg would have been kind of boring. The mushrooms were just the right addition. Due to the amount of starch the cornmeal provided, no one needed toast or the like.
- cook your polenta
- saute the mushrooms
- fry eggs
We all voted after eating them. G was a little reluctant to try them at first; he was not convinced it would be something he would enjoy. After he cleaned his plate, he offered to finish off mine. What a nice guy. Unfortunately, I got busy multitasking and my egg pictures aren’t as pretty as they should be, but that did not affect the taste at all.
and remember: Be a mess. It’s fine. The universe is a mess. Galaxies are drifting all over the place. To be tidy is to be out of tune with the cosmos. Big kiss, Lynn
