Patrish - So grits is just some bland, tasteless food that gives you a reason to mix in all that good stuff you mentioned to create something really good! When you put it that way, I understand. Using grits would certainly be better than using ground up cardboard.posting.php?mode=reply&f=58&t=15049#

Being a "Southern" girl I totally know how to eat grits. Add tons of butter and sugar and they taste just fine :lol:

Ok. I was born and raised in Virginia, but have lived in Ohio for 55 years. I have a friend that calls me half yank. I didn't eat them growing up but my mother in law taught me to like cheesy grits. I had never heard
Of pierogies either till I moved north, but I love them also. Being a half yank I've learned to tread lightly when it comes to different cultures. I found the following on grits. Com. Thought it might add a little humor. Enjoy.

"An Original Grits Poem
(submitted by a loyal visitor toGrits.com!)

Grits in the morning,
grits at night.
With butter and salt,
they taste just right.
Grits with bacon,
grits with ham.
I'm a grit lover,
yes, i am.
Grits with breakfast,
biscuts and gravy.
If you dont like grits,
you must be crazy.
Fresh hot grits,
stick to your ribs.
That's how a southerner.
likes to live.
Grits on the side,
but not to runny.
Northerners think grits,
taste kinda funny.
But good old grits,
just cant be beat.
It's a pure down south,
southern taste treat.
So give me grits every day,
I'll eat my grits any which way.
I love grits,
thats what i said.
If you aint never ate grits,
you aint never been fed!

By Martha B, 2007


Ode to Grits

Grits are cool, and most of my friends are cool as grits! I like grits in the morning with cheese and milk. This is my breakfast at least three times a week!

For a special treat I like to make a big batch of grits at night and eat some for dinner and let the rest sit out overnight.

They don't need to sit outside, it is sufficient to allow them to sit out on the stove, preferably with a cover so that cats don't eat them. Cats like grits too you know.

The next morning, the grits will be firm and pliable to be shaped into nice fat patties. Then fry the grit cakes in egg and milk batter like french toast. Serve them with butter, and jelly or syrup or whatever you like! Yeah! Grit cakes are great. I wrote a poem with grit cakes in it, and it won an award.

If anyone actually reads this, I hope that you love grits and try some grit cakes.

You won't be sorry!"

Don't shoot me but I hate grits. Tried them twice. Maybe just not done right.

Only way I like grits is with real maple syrup on them!
As for something we usually bring home with us, PRALINES from River Street Sweets!! Although with my diabetes, I need to be a good boy!! Geesh, maybe that's how I got diabetes in the first place :smash[1]:

It's funny up here in the north when you bring up grits. The first reaction you hear is "gross." Then, "what is a grit?" They hate 'em without trying them!

Misti and I made shrimp and grits for dinner the other night. Started with a recipe from an old Myrtle Beach cookbook and modified it to the ingredients we had on hand. BEST meal we've had this summer!

Back to the original question of what items do we we buy that are "local" to bring home... Hermit Crabs!

I've not made shrimp and grits yet but love them .. and speaking of cookbooks .. I'm a cookbookaholic ... Sea Captains house had a few out last year that I started to get and then talked myself out of ... I'm getting them in Sept.

Another thing I get is at Sparkys as we leave.. it's like a final goodbye when we stop lol... anyway is a small clam trinket like box.. I get one each year .. I have them in a big brandy like glass .. I've seen them in wings and eagles but I always get it at Sparkys LOL
