May 2: Grits

Cup's worth of stone ground white corn simmered in five cups of whole milk. Salt and pepper, stir constantly until thick. No cheese in my grits. Nothing fancied up about them.

I drop in a stick of butter.

"Mom, NO!" my sixteen year old declares, horrified.

I laugh. "Baby, that's why they taste so good."


  1. I'm sitting here shaking my head. Your SIXTEEN year old?!!!

    Okay, I'm composed now. And you've clarified something for me - grits are quite different from porridge.

  2. I must have not had the right grits because I have never much liked them. I also did not know how they were made. Hmm.
