Grits are similar to polenta but not as creamy. They tend to be a breakfast item and are generally very savory.

I came home, watched a movie, then realised I couldn't find my wallet. So I spent 40 minutes travelling back into the city and there was my wallet, behind my chair in this very busy city cafe. All money untouched. I estimate it was there in the shadows for 3 hours. Big Grin

Did the same thing when I was young and didn't have a bank account so I had to cash my paychecks. We went out for a late night snack and I had put my wallet (with over $500 in it) on my lap after paying at the drive through. Got home and jumped out, not realizing it was still on my lap.

The next morning I frantically searched for it, finally finding it sitting in the gutter just down the street. I'm amazed nobody picked it up. Facepalm

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Damm right. In certain applications it's okay, but overall it's a nasty cheese.

RE: I can't believe I did something that stupid
I once stole a really nice looking flower from a hotel room a few years back. In a nice glass enclosure, leaded lining, coloured Gravel at the bottom... I was pleased with my acquisition.

I put it in the boot of my car and positioned some stuff around it so it didn't fall over. It was a four hour drive home on an exceptionally hot day, being aware of this I stopped every hour or so and poured a bit of water on the flower to keep my loot alive.

I got home and gave it to the wife and told her the lengths I went to to keep it alive, ony for her to inform me it was an artificial flower.

I've still got the fucking thing now.


Another time I acquired a set of lawn bowls. So I convinced my then 5 year old son to have a game with me in the living room of the house.

The game was going good until I rolled a ball and it plowed straight through one of the wife's vases. I then remembered I saw some superglue upstairs in one of the drawers so I grabbed it and spent the best part of an hour trying to fix the thing before she came home. I was unsuccessful as it kept falling apart. She came in to see me sat on the floor surrounded by pieces of vase and superglue in my hand. Her anger was quickly cooled when she pointed out I wasn't using superglue after all... It was that fucking stuff you rub on your gums and mouth ulcers.

RE: I can't believe I did something that stupid
So we all ate a couple of quaaludes each and drank a bottle of Beam and I said "I'm going for a drive. Who's with me?" Somewhere along the way my brother the acid queen hooked us up with some purple people eaters. At least I wasn't as stupid as the rest of them who said "Let's roll! You drive."

#sigh

RE: I can't believe I did something that stupid
I've lived my whole life (except for one year in a service Academy in Colorado) in the deep south.

Grits are great, but I've never liked them with cheese. Standard here is just butter and perhaps a little salt/pepper. Goes with our "standard American southern breakfast" of bacon, eggs, toast, and grits. Up here in Missouri, they eat rice for breakfast, using the same technique we use for grits. I come from Louisiana, where we grow most of the rice, and nobody eats it like that! At least, not that I've seen.

My native culture's Cajun food is something that is a bit off-putting to outsiders, but I think it's the best food in the world (and I've actively sought and tried nearly ethnic food that's available here in the USA).

Fried gator-tail... Andouille sausage, chicken, and shrimp Gumbo (with filé and okra, of course)... shrimp/crawfish Etouffee... Pistolettes... Jambalaya... shrimp or pork Boudin... Dirty Rice... and of course the proper "New Orleans-style" (mainly has to do with a rare type of bread used) Po-Boy, either the "sloppy" roast beef or the fried seafood varieties.

Oh, and the tasty bread pudding we make out of the leftover Po-Boy loaves, which go stale after one day, and which is why they're not really found in places outside of south Louisiana.

Best in the world!

(Edit to add pronunciation guide: Andouille = ohn-doo'-ee; filé = fee'-lay; etouffee = ay'-too-fay'; jambalaya = zham'-buh-lie'-yuh; boudin = boo'-dan.)
