For grilled polenta, in a medium saucepan, bring chicken stock and heavy cream to boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, slowly whisk in the polenta and season with 1 teaspoon black pepper. Continue to whisk until the mixture starts to thicken, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add thyme, butter and Parmesan. Continue to stir until well combined and very thick. Pour into a greased 8-by-8-inch pan, smoothing out the top. Cool completely. Cut into desired shape. Grill cut polenta, about 3 minutes on each side.
Peach and blueberry salsa ... we love it on grilled chicken. But we suspect there are pork chops, shrimp, and fish tacos out there calling its name.
