Happy Birthday Hubby!

For JT's birthday we had breakfast all day long. It is his favorite meal...and I made enough grits for congress. ST made his favorite baked oatmeal, we had mini pecan muffins (thanks Elizabeth!), and bacon and eggs.

Mmmm creamy grits:

  • 6 cups boiling water
  • 1 1/2 cups stone ground grits..possibly Mabry Mill Grits..which is what I used
  • 1 tea salt
Simmer over low heat for 35 minutes, stirring occasionally

  • 1 cup half and half
  • 5 TB butter

Slowly add remaining ingredients and cook till absorbed.

I made the creamy grits from my "A Real American Breakfast" cookbook. Which I have yet to make anything that has not been fantastic from this book. Later for dinner, I made eggs on creamy grits with creole sauce. WOW..very yummy and different. Look at those grits on the bottom-Beautiful. We had to add buttermilk pancakes for the girls.

Joel always mentions the coincidences in my life..well here I am writing in my food blog about a wonderful food day and listening to a church leader and I hear: "I want to speak about God's happiness and how each one of us can taste of it in spite of the burdens that beset us." How great is that...he is speaking my language!!!

Hello my Southern Friend. Love your new photo! We sure do miss southern hospitality and having grits made us feel right at home.
