No need to say anymore how few I’m cooking lately, right? But things are slowly coming back to “not that much crazy and busy” with baby boy close to 8 months of age and me and Matteo can find each other in the kitchen more often.
Yesterday was a typical Italian day around our kitchen and Matteo was 100% responsible for that. For lunch he cooked polenta (oh, yes, remember how much I didn’t like it and start to like it during pregnancy? Still like it!) and for the first time I decided do give a try to his famous and much appreciated “polenta concia”. Polenta is from his area (Lombardia, north of Italy) and “polenta concia” is one of its variations but it never got my attention. How is it done? When your polenta is ready, you put a layer of polenta in your plate, a layer of margarine and your favorite dairy-free cheese (we use Vegusto). Add another layer of polenta on top and more dairy-free cheese and nutritional yeast. That’s it. Simple, easy, and delicious.
For dinner Matteo did home-made pizza (famous in our house and loved by all of our friends who tried it!). Last time he did it it was before baby boy was born! Couldn’t believe that when we thought about it while eating last night.
So it seems that between breast-feeds and baby food, we’re find time to cook and appreciate home-made food again!
