sickie news

I have been off sick today and really needed the extra rest. (Amazing--I have just had a week's holiday!) I have spent most of the day sleeping; I also ate some roasted vegetables with polenta, my first recipe from my new cookbook.

While sitting on the couch, I have been watching the fourth game of the Stanley Cup final (pre-recorded since it showed live in the middle of the night last week). I have to admit I haven't been following hockey since I left Canada.... Actually, let's be honest, I only ever watched hockey when my dad or brothers were. But that was enough to give me an appreciation for the speed and skill involved. There was a short interview with Ron MacLean from Hockey Night in Canada, saying how he hoped the NHL coverage continued to expand in the UK and Europe.

Sare, what is polenta exactly. I love eating it at restaurants. How do you cook and what section does one buy it in? I can never find it.
