Creamy Polenta with Mushroom Sauce

I love shrooms. It’s true. I love them in all their shroomy forms. From the oh so common versatile button to uppity truffle. I love them all. Now if only I could afford the uppity truffle but alas I’ll have to settle for truffle oil around these parts. I mean I wasn’t born with a  silver spoon in my mouth, just that spoon you see there in the photo which I happen to have  lifted borrowed from my parents house last visit. Technically my Dad insisted that I take it (in case my Mom happens to be reading this, remember I’m the favorite child). Champagne taste on a beer budget. I’m afflicted with it.

Good thing mushrooms (with the exception of those uppity truffles) don’t cost an arm an leg so I can continue to feed my obsession. Whew. If you love mushrooms too (and I hope so) did you know there’s a place where you can find mushroom recipes all day every day? Yes there is (smiling from ear to ear) and it’s called The Mushroom Channel Blog. I know all mushrooms all the time. Dreamy and I couldn’t be happier that I happen to be a contributor.  See that widget in the sidebar. It’s official.

Now who’s ready for a bowl of creamy dreamy polenta topped with a wicked good mushroom sauce? You of course!

    In the South, we call polenta grits. Nothing better than grits with amazing cheese like parm or Gouda, and now, mushrooms!!! Thank you!
