Another snow day, and I wanted something warm.

Had some organic polenta in the fridge, so I sliced some up and pan-fried it in a teaspoon of olive oil until it was really crispy and crunchy and golden, but still so lovely and chewy inside. I topped a couple of slices with red sauce, some with kalamata tapenade, and I always like a couple of slices just plain.

Toss on a few tomatoes, a couple of olives, some fresh basil leaves, and enjoy with a glass of white wine, knowing that the "work" week is long over (and those speech marks are very accurately used as it wasn't really a work week at all!).

EDIT: Should have spread a little pesto on the other slices . . . Will remember next time.
