Sausage and Polenta

It’s the unofficial start of summer weekend – and the weather is actually cooperating. This is usually the weekend where people spend a fortune for their house at the shore – only to have it rain the entire time.

It’s looking pretty good, for once.

Being retired, of course, means every weekend is a 3-day weekend. No… make that a 7-day weekend. One must be accurate in these things!

Monday will probably mean something on the grill, but in the meantime, there’s plenty on non-barbecue to still be had.

Tonight was sausage and lots of stuff from the produce bin over polenta. Really basic throw-together food. Another one of those be=never-to-be-replicated meals we do so well around here…

The basic was 2 links of sausage, cut into chunks and lightly fried. I took it out of the skillet and added chopped fennel, chopped leeks, chopped mini bell peppers, sliced red onion, minced garlic, and a couple of diced radishes. When they were about 75% done, I added the sausage back in along with a hefty splash of red wine. By the time the wine cooked down, the polenta was ready and dinner was served.
