get ready for blitzrecipe.
presenting eggplant-polenta stacks with tomato sauce in picture-book form (plus captions for the big kids).
fig 1a: approximately 78.3% of the ingredients getting cozy, but nowhere near the über-melty-coziness of what is to come. they're so adorably naïve!
fig 1b: cutting up everything in sight, because 'slices' are in this season. cute mdk washrash looks on.
fig 2a: polenta gets a little shredded in the process. it sits quietly, knowing not to upset anyone anymore for fear of the consequences. polenta, poor polenta.
fig 2b: browning the zucchini slices in olive oil, salt, and pepper. i absolutely adore the yellow and green colourings. smells divine, too.
fig 3a: piling up everything. stacking takes patience. *flip*
fig 3b: a little amuse-bouche while the baking happens. chicken jalepeno sausage and crusty bread await their tasty and toothsome demise.
fig 4a: meltymelty! mmmm fresh mozzarella, oozy and woozy. i'll just continue making culinary-induced sounds... mmm ooo eeia...
fig 4b: adding the reduced tomatos, sweetly fire-roasted. the red is extremely welcomed to the party.
fig 5: i think this is pretty self-captioning :) buon appetito!
