Polenta: It's not just that soft, creamy stuff you eat all winter to stay alive. It's so versatile, and actually the pantry ingredient I run out of most frequently.

I really love slice 'n cook polenta. It's more or less the same as if you'd cooked a batch (suffering multiple molten polenta burns), spread it into a pan, waited for that to cool and set forever, then sliced and fried or grilled it.
