Cooking instruction summary:

InstructionsMake the polenta. Pour the chicken broth and milk into a medium size saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium and slowly whisk in the polenta. Cook, stirring frequently, until the polenta is soft and thick, about 15 to 20 minutes. Keep warm and then just before serving, stir in the cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper. If the polenta seems a little thick you can add a tablespoon of butter or extra milk.While the polenta is cooking work on the salsa and salmon. Preheat your grill to high heat (you can also roast the corn and peppers in the oven, but I prefer the grill). In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, smoked paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, basil, thyme, salt and pepper. Rub the salmon with a tablespoon of olive oil and then cover with the blackened seasoning. Leave about 1 or 2 teaspoons of the seasoning for the salsa. Place the salmon in fridge.Rub the corn and red pepper with a little olive oil. Wrap the corn in a small piece of foil and grill the corn + red pepper for about 25 minutes turning each veggie about three times. Remove and let cool. When cool, slice off the corn kernels, de-seed and chop the pepper and place both in a medium size bowl. Add the chopped peach, chopped jalapeo pepper, basil, lime juice, green onions, hot sauce and 1 to 2 teaspoons of the blackened seasoning. Toss well and set aside.Remove the salmon from the fridge and grill (or broil, whatever you prefer) for 3 to 4 minutes, flip and cook another 2 to 3 minutes.Serve the salmon over the cheesy polenta and top with the salsa.

Food Joke

I had just finished visiting a friend in the hospital and stopped by a burger drive-through for lunch to eat on the way back to work. I ordered the #1 combo for $4.29. She said "that'll be $4.83, please drive forward." "$4.83? For a $4.29 meal? That's 54 cents tax!? That can't be right," my mind raced. Tax is 8 cents on the dollar in Huntsville, Alabama and for 4 dollars that would be 32 cents plus 1/3 of 8 cents would be 35 cents max. I'd heard of window workers overcharging drive through customers and skimming the money for themselves. Someone did just that to me at a Hardees couple of years ago. I didn't have my calculator watch so I got a pen and paper and did the long division since there were 2 cars ahead of me. Let's see ... 483/429 ... over 12 percent tax!? When I got to the window I handed her a 5 and said "what's the sales tax in Huntsville?" She didn't know. I said "$4.83 for a $4.29 meal is 12 percent tax. That can't be right. Can I talk to the manager?" She gave me my change and called the manager. So the manager comes over. I ask what the sales tax is in Huntsville, and she says 8 percent. I say that I just paid $4.83 for a $4.29 meal and that's over 12 percent sales tax. She got a funny look on her face and said that maybe the computer had rung it up wrong or had charged me for the biggie size . She admitted it was supposed to be 4.63, and opened the drawer to give me my extra change. "HA!" I thought to myself. "Six years engineering school has so heightened my mental mathematical adeptness that I can do percentages in my head and my superior intellect has foiled a feeble attempt by a drive-through worker to overcharge me!" So what did this mathematical wizard do next? I took the twenty cents she handed me, proud of my staggering genius, and smugly drove off without my food.
