"It’s been cool, damp and rainy (really rainy)  around this little section of northeast Ohio!  Not really grilling weather, even though Memorial Day is just about upon us!   Usually, once the end of May hits, we spend most evenings outside by the grill, but not the past few days!  So, I prepared one of my favorite “Grandma Rose” recipes last night, Polenta with Home Style Marinara Sauce.   Polenta, a northern Italian dish, is made of cornmeal.  It can be made from white corn meal, buckwheat or golden cornmeal (which is what I have always used).  This dish is eaten hot with a sauce, gravy or butter and cheese.   Often, polenta can be cooled until firm and pan fried until golden brown and served with butter and syrup for breakfast.   I have many fond memories of my Grandmother making this same dish. except she used to call it mush.  The basic difference between mush and polenta is that polenta is made from a coarser grade of cornmeal.   My grandmother  would either serve this with gravy or home made marinara sauce (my favorite!)  If you prefer to use your favorite brand of canned sauce, please do so. But, home made sauce is not hard and has a taste like no other!  Start your sauce first and let it simmer while you make the polenta.  Try this for dinner!"
