    Grits are like cream of wheat but corn rather than wheat.

    Good with cheese or scrimp among other ways. Mostly with butter.

    Grits are a waste of corn that could be used much better to get pigs and cattle ready to put real food on the table like steaks and chops!!!!sign1

    LOL corn makes chops, ribs and steaks! Whiskey too!

    Sorry guys but I got fed cold lumpy oatmeal for breakfast 6 for months while staying with a farm family while I was 16. Don't eat "hot" cereals anymore!

    Morning all, taking grandsons to preschool this morning. Going to try to finish the tear out on one room this afternoon.

    Have a great day all!

    My introduction to grits was mess hall #5 at Keesler AFB in Mississippi. During the year I was stationed there, I saw oatmeal exactly once. The rest of the year, it was grits and SOS, two things I came to loathe. And watching some guy kill a rat as it ran across the serving line didn't help my appetite one bit. :curse:

    Us Eastern farmers like a nice hot meal in the morning. The only time we have grits is when we have relations come that we want to go back home real soon. Other than that the hogs like grits. :)

    Everyone in every area of the country had some off the wall stuff they call food. Up here in the nord country they pickle fish and soak others in lye.....they also take perfectly good potatoes, mash em, roll em flat and thin....dry fry em and put sugar and other crap on em....darn Norwegians....take good mased taters, just begging for butter or gravey and just ruin em!


    I don't eat that junk either!

    See, there are good Yankees too. :thumb: John is one of the great ones. Got a great layout and farm too. Any you Yanks that don't know about GRITS, send me an email and your address. You'll get GRITS.

    Down in sunny and beautiful Orlando FL. Sure is a big difference from last weekend in PA. :rolleyes: Microwave popcorn time.
