When I started working for myself full time, I had this idyllic notion that since I would be working from home, I’d have time to cook the types of meals I wanted to eat. I dreamed that dinner would be my time to unwind and cook what I wanted to cook. It turns out, however, I do not know how to say "no" to projects, and instead of those nice, long dinners, most weeknights I’m in a rush just to whip something up in between projects.
That is where this pared-down dish comes into play. This casual assembly of store-bought polenta, white beans, and silky chard make a quick and filling meal that's easy to pull together on even the busiest of evenings.
