      How could you not love anything that comes out of "Lidia's" kitchen? This is no exception, a very traditional and extremely a tummy-full of love. This is so simple, although I confess to worrying a bit when the potato didn't appear to mash and get as smooth as the polenta I've made in the past. But no need to worry, this came together beautiful once the cornmeal as added, and then to add the top of crop of love, the bacon. Excuse me, I now have to go and run, because I ate more then my fair-share. Thanks for posting, under! Made for ZWT7
