Fridays Dinner... Polenta with marinara

This is the polenta & nicely broiled brussels

Polenta (after going back under broiler for a few extra minutes)

Polenta nicely covered with red sauce

Prior to going in
I did not use anything on the polenta
the brussels have olive oil on them

This was the biggest hit
Sweet potato "fries"

Waiting in a warmer dish

2 egg omelet

Wild Blueberry Vanilla protein shake

Polenta with Marinara sauce & broiled veggies

Easy peasy. Place a piece of foil in the bottom of your broiler pan. Put sliced sweet potatoes and brussel sprouts on it and lightly toss with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Broil for 10 minutes, turn once and broil an additional 10 minutes. Take out and put in serving dish, covered with lid. Then placing a new piece of foil in broiler pan, place polenta slices (buy a tube, slice in 1/2 inch slices) in the broiler for about 10 min each side or until nicely browned. Take polenta out, place slices on plates and cover with warm marinara sauce. Serve with broiled veggies.

Dinner in roughly 35-40 minutes. Easy.

Late evening snack
Guacamole and corn chips
