A note about serious food allergies

Trivia time: What's the difference between polenta and grits? Well, they're spelled differently. (We've got Dad jokes here, folks.) Polenta is from yellow corn, is a bit chewier, and comes from Italy, not the American south. Polenta here forms the bed for the succulent pork chop, sauced with a rich cherry sauce. Will this meal have you saying grazie as opposed to thanks y'all? Probably not, but it will be filling and delicious!
