Let’s transition ever so gently into this upcoming week that threatens to hold me responsible for getting up at the rude hour of 8:00 7:00, putting on a grown-up outfit, and actually getting some work done.  How about something both righteously wholesome and just a touch decadent on this last day of this most delicious of breaks, to make the transition bearable…

Polenta rounds with prosciutto, goat cheese, and onion+pepper relish

  • 1 polenta log
  • 5-6 strips prosciutto
  • as much goat cheese as you’d like
  • a tablespoon or two of pepper+onion relish, or something else along similar lines of zappiness
  • fresh dill

You can guess the rest: layer it all in the way that pleases your heart and pop it into the oven for 10 minutes or so at 375F.  And look how perfectly your creation will nestle against a salad of mixed greens and garbanzo beans!

Why do I even bother with multi-step dishes when something this simple makes people swoon?

  • goat cheese
  • capers
  • roasted tomatoes
  1. Tomatoes go on top of the cheese.
  2. Capers go on top of the tomatoes.
  3. Everything goes into the oven: 10 minutes at 375F.
