As a southern born boy my grandma, God Bless her, often
made grits. Sometimes we ate them like kids eat cereal today,
and at other times we ate them as a side dish to bacon and eggs.
How I would love to see her cooking on the old wood stove again.
She also ironed her clothes using the old time cast iron "iron"
that was heated on the wood stove. How she could handle the
heat isn't know but Grandma Ida Morris Robinson did it.
Surprisingly, many of the local restaurants serve grits. Of
course we are a farming and recreational community. Back in
the big city when you ask for grits the waitress looks like I just
asked her to unrobe. Unless she is southern born she just says
