Yesterday was Josh's first softball game of the year. I went over and watched the game after a quick workout. They won and it was nice to be outside but it was a little cold! Hopefully it will be warmer for the next one :). Last night I made bbq chicken with polenta and berries. I had never made polenta before. Its good but a little bland. I used this Giada recipes with less butter. If anyone has made polenta before, what do you put in it to add flavor?

Polenta (recipe from http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/recipes/recipe/0,,FOOD_9936_26401,00.html) :

6 cups water
2 teaspoons salt
1 3/4 cups yellow cornmeal
3 tablespoons unsalted butter

Bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a heavy large saucepan. Add 2 teaspoons of salt. Gradually whisk in the cornmeal. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the mixture thickens and the cornmeal is tender, stirring often, about 15 minutes. Turn off the heat. Add the butter, and stir until melted.

Sorry for no pics today!
