How are you today?

I’ve been very busy these past few days, because I am on vacation enjoying my city with my husband and guests from Brazilian. We have visited so many touristic points in the city that I was thinking I am ready to apply for a job as a tourist guide at the city of Toronto … just kidding! Although I have visited these place so many times before, I still enjoyed going there because I love Toronto and everything it has to offer.

    I love polenta but I’ve actually never had it from the tube! I always make it from dry…. but I always wonder what I could do with the tube. This is such a great idea! Easy little bites that you could adapt so many ways. Love it!

    Haha, I bet you would make an amazing tour guide, Olivia!! I always love it when we have visitors and we get to pretend to be tourists in our own town, it can be so much fun! I’ve only cooked with polenta once before, but I really enjoyed it and love that it is gluten free. I’ll have to pick some up next time I see it at the grocery store!

    Well, it’s always good to have career options, Olivia! ;-)
    These little appetizers sound so tasty – like a sort of posh pizza. I’ve never used polenta like this before – but it’s a great idea!

    I feel the same about Toronto. Whenever I have friends/family visiting from the west coast I always see the city through their eyes. Fun! This dish looks great, too. I’ve never tried polenta but it’s looks tasty. Have a great weekend! :)
