How do you like 'em, if so? I just had a bowl with butter and salt. Mmmmm!

I only tried grits for the first time on Sunday and I don't see what the fuss is about.

nativeDallasite, you need to get the stoneground kind! And make it with half water, half milk, salt the water before you add the grits and let it cook slowly, covered for at least 20-30 minutes or even longer. You'll have to check them because you may need to add more water but stir them now and then. Then butter them up, add cheese if you like, I usually don't. I grind some black pepper into it. Yummy!

One time in Marksville LA, I ordered a burger expecting fries to come with it and along came this tasteless yuck left by some birds no doubt. It was to my dismay that they didn’t have fries.

I could eat a steak by the time I do all of this stuff

They're ok, I guess. But, maybe I need the old-fashioned kind too.
