Pre-Thanksgiving Brunch: Shaved Brussel Sprouts & Polenta Cake

Well, ok, I'm not really having brunch.  I'm practicing some new recipes to serve on Thanksgiving.  We typically visit our friends in Wilmington on Thanksgiving and time our drive to beat traffic, which means its up at O Dark 30 to get over the river and through the woods before anyone else starts heading to Grandma's house.  We get there, we're hungry, but don't want to spoil our appetite either.

I've had this dish at a local restaurant and it's one of my favorites, but Chris isn't crazy about the venue, so I don't get this very often.  We love the food, but the venue is just not . . . well, its just not.  

This year they are driving to us, so I thought I would just serve our appetizers when they arrive as a light brunch.  I tried my hand at a version of this dish and called it a success: (click to go to recipe)  Shaved Brussel Sprouts & Polenta Cake.  A little champagne, a little fire, and a little nap while the Turkey roasts.
