    Just moved to NC 9 months ago, tried them in some Restaurant, not to impress.
    I am going to try this one. Thanks for the recipe.
    I eat grits with lots of butter and sugar, once was scolded by an old man ( 90 maybe ?) in a restaurant in Louisiana for ruining the grit..

    Grit with shrimps, southern man's caviar. I'll have to try saltymike's suggestion with the Key lime pie. Don't you miss the days when bacon grease was considered a healthy part of southern cooking. Thanks for the post.

    Wow, does this ever sound delightful! You're right, grits are hard to find here north of the border but I'm sure it would be equally good with rice? Thanks!
