I can not get enough of the beautiful weather we are having. Spring is finally showing its true colors. Our lawn is looking spectacular, luscious and extra green. My tulips are in full bloom. And I can not get enough of the bright colors.
This recipe was inspired by the shrimp we had in New Hope, PA last weekend. I really enjoyed that charred grilled taste of the prawns and wanted to recreate it.
Kurt and I only recently have discovered polenta, but we have fallen in love with it. I made it Mediterranean style with fat free feta cheese and truffle oil. For vegetables I sauteed julienned zucchini and carrots. The entire dish was heavenly and only took about 40 minutes to put together.
I wish you all a great weekend. Let’s hope the weather continues to be pleasant.
