    give it up for that king of hot cereals, grits.

    whether its time for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, you can always count on grits, and it can accompany virtually any type of food.

    for dinner tonight i had a small bowl of grits with salt and pepper, a sandwich, and a pear, with a cup of green tea with mint to wash it all down.

    I had them one time when I went down to Virginia and there was a Denny's. They're soooooooooo good.. love them. I wish they had them here.

    I'm not a big fan, I've always found it tasteless.

    ...just like Southern food.

    penny, i'm sure you could get grits at a grocery there, even if you gotta get like the quaker instant pouches or something. being in a dorm with no kitchen, thats what i have to settle for.....better than instant oatmeal, though!

    now i love good, gummy oatmeal boiled in milk with some butter on top and brown sugar, but i can't see myself eating oatmeal except for breakfast. grits is a good staple for any time of day, though!

    I never had them. Where I come from people eat bagels. Someone told me what they once were and I forgot.

    grits is a dish. a hot cereal made from corn. its similar in consistancy to cream of wheat, but way better.

    btw, "grits" isn't a necessarily plural word, it just ends in "s." :cheers2:

    i unfortunately don't like eggs as a dish. i only really eat them as an ingredient in something else.

    but a good breakfast with grits, imo, would be a big bowl of grits with butter, salt and pepper, some extra crispy well done bacon or else some sausage links, a piece of fruit or two, and a cup of strong black tea with milk and honey, or maybe a glass of juice and a double espresso.

    No I've looked at grocery stores, they don't have grits. Just oatmeal which I don't like.

    I just love how salty grits are.. so comforting..

    that does sound good. except the bacon. for some reason, i'm just not a fan of bacon anymore.

    i do like cream of wheat, though, with lots of salt and sugar.

    That's odd. I live less than 200 miles from you and I can buy them EVERYWHERE. I mean, like at 7-11. Want me to send you some?

    I've honestly never in my life ever had grits. I'd like to try them.

    The secret to really good grits is sea salt and a double boiler. Then unsalted butter and fresh cracked pepper. And then you mix the leftovers with shredded cheddar and an egg and bake them in a casserole.

    Heavenly.

    for now, instant will have to suffice.
