Polenta Fries

So I rushed out of the house last evening without even taking a pic of the polenta fries that I took to my carpoolers party. These are just soo simple & easy to make. I love polenta and first saw PBS-Everyday Food make this along with some chili-rubbed beef flank. They are nice and crispy and go great with meatloaf or even some other kind of meat dish. Trader Joes has polenta in a tube for less than $2 so whenever I'm there I just pick up a tube so that when I'm at a loss for a side dish, out comes the polenta fries!!
