Motiovation Friday

Friday, May 15, 2009
Okay, to check on my goals. I am hand sewing the binding down on the Santuary quilt, and the quiltng is done on the blue/cream Irish chain, the quilt is trimmed, the binding made and sewn on. Just the hand work left. Whew!

Today I am getting company, it's graduation weekend for some of the nephews and a niece, so Laura Beth and family are coming home for that. I have been running errands, back and forth to the field, and yesterday was errand day again, mowed the lawn, and started cleaning and cooking for company. Extra beds are made, the floor vacuumed, swept, mopped and toilets are cleaned. No I am not the cleaning fairy--Ken usually does that. Don't look too close, and you are fine! (He's actually quite sweet as he did it early this morning while I was still asleep!) Well, he did vacuum last night while I was making beds!

Do any of you recognize my supper??

Come on and make a guess! No idea? Not cream of wheat or cream of rice---it's grits! Bet you didn't know that someone from the NORTH ate them, and I'm not from the South! I was first introduced to these at a Waffle House years ago in Southern Missouri. And I have relatives that eat them too (they are from Missouri) so I have developed a taste for them. A few stores will carry "grits", and I always have a canister on hand. I eat them a lot like hot cereal, but like them with butter too. Sometimes I eat them with a dab of apple butter, but haven't had the cheese etc kind. Have you? What's your favorite?

Yumm! i like the red eye grits kind (with little bitty pieces of country ham)topped with butter, and scrambled eggs and buttermilk biscuits on the side.

I'd never even heard of grits until President Jimmy Carter went into office.then everyone was eating them!

I've had grits all my life, but it wasn't until I moved to North Carolina that I ever had shrimp and grits--a low country, South Carolina dish. Oh. My. Gosh.

To die for!

Grits are a staple here. My boys are big grits eaters. We usually just add butter. We like them as a side with eggs and ham. Yes, grits with shrimp are super. It's a South Carolina dish. Wonderful!
