We were talking in the park today about ratatouille so I went to the market and bought all the ingredients and made a great ratatouille. I added a few mushroom and cooked some wide lasagna noodles. I mixed them together and voila. It was very good.
There is a recipe for ratatouille on this blog I think. If not there are many on the internet.

This was just too much. A deliciously simple meal and a great combination of flavors.
Everyone knows how to make a beef and carrot stew. It is not so much how you make it as how well you make it.
For the polenta the mix is as follows.
3 cups of water or stock. I would say a mix but I used water.
1 cup of polenta grain (available anywhere)
1 knob of butter
1 oz of Italian cheese.
Bring the stock to the boil and add the polenta
Stir constantly and cook the polenta for a good 30 minutes on a very slow heat. Just like oatmeal if you will.
It is preferable to do this in a water bath on the stove so that there is no direct contact between polenta and flame.
Allow to thicken then add a knob of butter and the cheese. Fold in.
