Happy Friday! (Grits! Now with photo proof!)



I’m hoping that wordpress will get its act together this morning and eventually turn that blank box above into a photo showing my beautiful bowl of grits! It might just make you hungry!! I’ve loaded and reloaded it several a whole bunch of times, but it’s just not working. Grrrrrrrrr….. the photo is safely in my computer, but wordpress won’t let me post any new ones, despite having plenty of allowed space to do so! Grrrrrrrr…. BUT!! I won’t let it spoil my day (even if it did spoil your view of my delicious breakfast).

Farmer*sWife inspired me to make a hot breakfast for my kiddos this morning –grits and eggs, although SnakeMaster preferred to make himself some toast instead of trying something new (that’s his little plate with scraps in the background). The other three *tried* the grits, but no one begged for seconds. They’ve had ’em before, it’s just that despite 5+ years in Texas (and SM being born there) no one has good ol’ southern tastebuds. Of course, when you don’t come down for breakfast until 7 minutes before your school bus is at the end of the drive? Maybe you don’t have time for second helpings.
Anyhoooo…. what, I ask you, could be better than a yummy hot breakfast in a bowl made by my bloggie friend and potter Gary Rith!

Today is a busy one, with shopping at Costco and Target (pronounced Tar-jshay because we’re high class here), the usual laundry, etc., etc.. I think it will be chicken for dinner tonight (except for MusicMan, who is eating pizza with the band before the football game). My mom is scheduled to come into town, but I’m not sure when –I only know she is arriving before supper! If it ever stops raining, she’ll get to see & hear the band tonight at the game…if it doesn’t let up, the woodwind section will keep those instruments in their cases, which is what happened last year!

Now I’m off to scrub the hall bathroom (the one that all 4 boys use on a regular basis) and do a good cleaning of H-J’s room, because Grandma is coming later today!
H-J is going to bunk up with his little brother so Grandma can have his bed.

  1. Whew! Busy day! And, you made a nummy-yummy hot breakfast too! How could they diss the grits! My mouth is watering now for poached eggs, grits, and toast — got any left overs for me?

    Happy Cleaning and Happy Friday! [I’ll see you later this afternoon if you have time to pop in for our drawing!!!]

  2. BOWLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I would simply LOVE some of that pottery. Would it be possible to order some and have it shipped to Vancouver during Christmas???

  4. I definitely think you have to be raised on grits–I wasn’t and I’ve tried it once. Never again.

  5. I love me some grits!!! My Dad is an alabama boy…he likes southern food unless! it contains beans…no beans ever on his plate. lol Quite un-southern I think.
    Is that a pic of your sweetie cooking at the grill in those camping pics?? He looks like a Marine there! All lean and suared away.
    I’ve got to go snooping through your stuff now…lol…gotta find out some more stuff. 😉

  6. oh man…. as a born & bred northerner, i just CANNOT learn to love grits. ick!

  7. People! Grits are corn! [right?] If you can eat Malt-O-Meal? You are eating grits, disguised as a hot breakfast type cereal food.

    Skip the sugar and honey? Add salt and butter, and if demanded, cheese. GRITS!

    And, I don’t kiss mine….I EAT’EM! Ha! Ha!

    [kc: you need all the boys (big and small) to pitch in and purchase you a lap top from SANTA. Then, no fighting for time. No being tied to the PC. You can bake up the bacon and cook sum’grits all while keepin up on the vast internet!!]

  8. tasty! we make them with scrambled eggs
    YES, the pottery is available 🙂

  9. I have never had grits! I’m a Canuk, what else is there to say! 🙂
