Chili Polenta Bake

Tonight’s dinner is super easy and can be made vegetarian or not. I needed to use up some polenta and had a few cans of chili – combine for a easy, tasty recipe!IMG_3716

Ingredients: Polenta roll (prepared), 2 cans of vegetarian chili, spinach and shredded cheese.

Directions: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice polenta and place on the bottom of a pan. I used a polenta roll with sun-dried tomato and garlic.IMG_3705 Cut or tear spinach leaves and place on top of polenta. Top with two cans of chili and spread evenly. Sprinkle it with cheese. Bake until hot and cheese is melted.IMG_3707

It didn’t transfer to a plate very gracefully, but it was tasty! Well, it was delicious according to Ben. I didn’t eat it because I used meat chili and wanted something else anyways.IMG_3721

Before dinner I had some fruit. I’ve been craving fruit all day!IMG_3708

I made a huge salad for myself with tons of veggies, hummus and a veggie burgerIMG_3712

and toast with spreadable feta on the side :)IMG_3719

Now Ben and I am watching Lost. Can you say addicted?

I’m also wearing my warming neck pillow I got for Christmas :) Thanks Mom!IMG_3724

    You know I have never cooked with polenta. I don’t know why – it always look so good, and I need to find some with sun dried tomatoes and garlic. I think I would love it.

    I love those neck warmers. I think they use to sell them at Origins, and they were filled with lavender or something. Smelled amazing, and perfect for a cold winter night in Maryland. Stay warm my friend and thank you so much for my birthday card. So sweet, and yes, it was funny. :)

    Happy New Year Monica!

    Oh, I admire you for preparing something separate for Ben. I need to be better about preparing separate meals to satisfy different palates!

    Your neck warmer reminds me of one my mom made for herself – out of an old sock and rice – just heat it up in the microwave!
