i enjoyed it so much, i didn’t remember to take a picture of it until it was gone!

i’ve been doing my super-darnedest recently to reduce my intake of refined sugars and white flour, so when i needed a little something late on a wednesday night, i set about creating a snack that wasn’t too sweet, but satisfied my late-night craving for comfort food. (you could easily enjoy this for breakfast, too!)

i warmed up a quarter cup of milk and a quarter cup of water and a pinch of salt in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. it shouldn’t boil.

dump in a quarter cup polenta or cornmeal, and whisk or stir until it’s gotten nice and thick.

drizzle with a small spoonful of molasses and enjoy!

(makes one perfect late-night serving. i would double the recipe for breakfast.)
