It’s not a pastry, nor a bread…it’s actually a side dish. However since I just came into possession of some pretty nice corn meal, it seemed like fate. And given the holiday yesterday and the fact that little Joan has bronchitis, this is going to be a pretty abbreviated week anyway. So let’s do it!
