Grits

I had a couple of really good ideas in my mind for some things I wanted to blog about, but I forgot what they were, and we were without internet for a few days, but are up and running again thanks to Steve's Uncle Mike! Anyways, Saturday I got to hang out with my cousin Michael for a couple of hours because he was in town for a state track meet. He was up from Vegas, and it was snowing when he had to run. I'm sure that was not very much fun for him, but I enjoyed chatting with him before he goes off to the Air Force Academy, I haven't seen him for 3 years, and that was only for a couple of minutes. But for breakfast that morning Simon and I had grits. Does anybody know how to make grits taste good? I tried adding sugar, and strawberries, and butter, but it just wasn't doing the job for me. Was I just not adding enough?
Oh and in other news, I have stooped to all new low in girlyness. I read my first Nicholas Sparks novel, I had seen a few of the movies based on his books but never actually read one. So yesterday I read Dear John. I started on it at work and read the first two hours while I was the greeter and read for 30 more minutes during my breaks, and decided to finish it up at bedtime. I stayed up until 2:17 reading. So much for that becoming a morning person thing. Maybe next week. But I really enjoyed the book, and I am such a sucker I cried my eyes out the whole last half. There is no way I could have read that in front of anyone, it would have been incredibly embarrassing, there were tears streaming down my face. Luckily, not even Steve saw me because he was asleep, but I am sure he heard me sobbing and sniffling.
Anyways, time to get Simon ready for bed so Steve and I can finally watch the movie we rented last week, I'm not too excited for it, but Steve has been wanting it so I rented it for him. We are going to watch the Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. It has Heath Ledger in it and a bunch of other stars. It looks weird to me, but we will see how it is... Love you all lots!

I like a good romance novel. I don't know if I have ever read one of Nicholas Spark's. The title "Dear John" sounds familiar though. But that could just be because of the phrase "Dear John".

Try adding brown sugar to them. Also I think a little salt is suppose to help. I think with grits, it is you love them or hate them. So maybe you are one of those hate them people.

I am glad you were able to see Michael. He is so grown up. I hope he likes it at the academy. Hopefully Erin will be able to see him while he is there.

How was the movie?

Ummmmm, you're a dork. But I love you! And as for Mom, "Dear John" sounds familiar because a movie, based on the book was just recently in theaters. Heather likes grits, or at least she used to, so maybe you should ask her what makes them taste good.

I like eggs over easy with grits. It's good for soaking up the yoke, if you're into that sort of thing. The whole thought makes other people yack though.
Other than that, I think I treated them like oatmeal--with brown sugar. Or I'd do butter. It's hard to remember for sure--I haven't had them in a long time.

I either put cinnamon and sugar in my grits or cheese and butter, depending on if I want sweet grits or not. You'll just have to add a little at a time til you've added enough.

I really wanted to see The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. How was it??
