Creamy Pumpkin Polenta Two Ways

As is par for the course lately, I am behind in my posting.  I feel guilty about this but until I can learn to squeeze a couple more hours out of the 24 we've got...that is just the way it is! 

There is SO much going on that I feel like I can't do it all justice by trying to cram everything into one post so I'm going to take them one at a time. 

First...last week I got an email from the folks at Lactaid asking me submit an entry in their Gourmoo Cookoff  on 

I was actually flattered that they found my blog on their own and invited me to participate, which I was glad to do!  I use Lactaid milk anyway when I use cow's milk at all. 

Here's the deal on this on either of the links above and find my entry either under my name; Jill Anderson OR the name of the recipe which is Creamy Pumpkin Polenta Two Ways.

The contest entry video is only 3 minutes long however, I did record the full instructional video to post on my youtube channel.  My husband is the director, editor and chief officer in charge of posting to youtube though so hopefully he'll have time to get it posted tomorrow.  The contest entry is up though. 

The recipe can be found on cookoff website and I will also include it on the youtube companion page on my blog once he gets it up.  For now, I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Voting closes on November 9th so I would really, really, really appreciate it if you'd pop on over and vote for my entry!

BTW...part of this recipe is also going to factor into my POM WONDERFUL dinner party on Sunday, November 14th.  I'll be posting all about that later!
