School's in Session with Sweet Polenta Blueberry Cake

This cake is delicious.

Find Terri's delicious Sweet Polenta Blueberry Cake recipe here.

Don't have a kitchen scale? Get one (you'll thank me later) or visit this website for easy conversions (I have made a cheat sheet in my kitchen so I don't have to keep clicking back).

School's in session, my kitchen is quiet (for a wee bit) and I'm so happy to be full throttling into Fall.

Here are a few things I'm excited about:

  • Our school district's meal provider Preferred Meals is now providing sugar content information for parents. Check out the menus here. Our district has also begun an email list for parents and caregivers who would like to receive ingredient information in addition to nutritional content. Click here to sign your District 76 family up for communications from the Preferred Meals Team. I am hoping to get in on the school lunch action as soon as that first email comes in! 
  • Introducing The Chef Ann Foundation. They are a non-profit organization that helps schools transition from serving unhealthy processed and packaged foods, to scratch cooking with fresh produce and wholesome ingredients. They carry out that vision by actively supporting school districts nationwide through grant programs and by providing tried and tested tools for school food change and #foodtruth! Sign up for their delicious newsletter here.
  • Food Day 2015 is coming up fast! As a member of the planning committee for Chicago Food Day (October 22-24th), we are gearing up and actively seeking exhibitors, sponsors and partners to help us create a Farm-to-Table experience across the Chicagoland area. Learn more here! Applications are due September 1st. #FoodDayCHI

Welcome back and let her rip!
