Sunday 3rd April 2011
Firstly, I would like to say that I’ve recycled this from another food blogger. Every time I look at her blog I always want to make what she posts. Thanks you for the recipe. We all enjoyed it very much. Although, when I asked my son to try the fried polenta he took one bite, without hesitation, screwed up his nose and said;
“Nah, I don’t like it.”
Oh well, you can’t win them all. 😉
Secondly, my mother-in-law is arriving today so the pressure is on to serve up some hot, tasty food. She is a very good cook and is always very appreciative of what I cook, but (perhaps) like all son-in-laws I seek her approval. I decided to make this tonight as she is quite partial to beans and stewy, soupy, saucy type meals.
“Why did you use the beans?” My wife asked.
The beans have been in a jar on my kitchen shelf gathering dust for the last year. I had tried soaking and using them before without success so left them on the shelf, vowing to fight that battle another day.
“Cos’ your mum likes them…” I said.
“Oh right , that was nice of you.”
“…Yeah, *** ***** * **** ****, does your mum.” I added cheekyly.
“Tell me about it.” She replied, rolling her eyes.
I have placed this in yet another new category; vegetarianish.
Anything that can be adapted for vegetarians will be tagged like this.
*Note: My mother-in-law found these words to be offensive so I have removed them out of respect.
