|Butternut squash polenta with sausage and onions. YUMMY!|
My Daddy would sometimes make cornmeal mush as he called it. I believe he just boiled plain old cornmeal so that it was thick. I think it was for breakfast with butter on it much the same way we would eat grits. Or maybe sometimes we would put sugar and milk on it. At any rate, I'm sure my Daddy never heard of polenta nor butternut squash for that matter. (We only knew yellow crookneck squash when I was growing up.)
But I've been introduced to polenta in the last year or two, and being a fan of anything with butternut squash I found this recipe in the NY Times hard to pass up. It's a nice blend of the savory polenta with the sweet butternut squash, and the sausage and onions are a perfect topping---not to mention the rosemary which adds a nice flavor.

This is a recipe you should try!
