4/24/2003: Grits rolling contest
MachineyBear Thursday Apr 24 01:22 PM
That's what happens when tell the waitress at a Waffle House that you're starving.
Cochese Thursday Apr 24 01:47 PM
So in addition to smothered and covered Waffle house grits, you now have smothering.

So, that woman is Natalie Portman?
dave Thursday Apr 24 02:16 PM
Probably more like "Mary-Sue Portman", but...

In re: Grits
first thought ... "Better to roll in them than to have to eat them."
And Thursday Apr 24 03:12 PM
Hooboy... Welcome to the South.
Everyone has their own kink, I guess...

Why do I have this sudden urge for a big bowl of tapioca pudding topped with Cool Whip?

Grits are boiled, coarsly ground, corn. The kernels are first stripped of their skins with lye.
wolf Saturday Apr 26 12:51 PM
See, novice day off, you should have stuck with "grits 'r fifty."
Whit Saturday Apr 26 01:19 PM
Grits are only good with a proper amount of butter. You can tell by the color these don't have it. Some people add sugar too, but that's just sick.

'stripped with lye'.....Wolf, grits sure r fifty, sorry i doubted you man
juju Saturday Apr 26 10:42 PM

grits, dey is whats for dinner
First let me say the grits festival has been going for quite awhile. Around these parts it is a very popular event. Grits are also an important part of Southern cooking and Gullah cookin.

It's the hours of religious music that get me. What (I was about to write "pray tell") does religious music have to do with grits? Are grits credited with saving souls somewhere?
Bitmap Sunday Apr 27 11:38 PM
I'm pretty sure that the Bible mentions nothing about grits. So this must be a Sacraligous Grits Ritual.

Oops, sorry maam. Hey JuJu who you callin' "he"

McCann's Irish Steel Cut Oatmeal.
Takes forever to cook, guaranteed to boil over several times causing a horrid mess upon the stove no matter how carefully you watch over them, but they are a totally different taste experience. Make a big batch, refrigerate, and microwave as necessary. (McCann's also makes an instant version, which is still better than Quaker instant, captures most of the flavor-quality of the long-cook type, but is a little mushier than I like). Wee bit o' cream and honey ... mmmmmm.

Ground corn....ground oats...that's not food. That's what food eats.

I'm a rotten SOB for saying so, but man that looks like Rachel Corrie!

As for nightsong and his grit thingy I think it is an accquired taste. You either like it or you do not. I am not fond of what tastes like dirt with a bit of butter or cheese! As for all the music we are the belt buckle of the bible belt annoying as it is. music is better played then have the amataur holy singer that is tone deaf sing(we will not even start that one)
Whit Tuesday Apr 29 11:32 AM
Ever notice that everyone that lives in the bible belt say they live in the buckle? I've lived in Louisianna, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas and the only time I didn't live within a mile of a church was when I was ten miles outside of town. Even then I think there was a church within three miles...
