A couple of months ago we had one of Wayne's co-workers from North Carolina over for dinner and she gave us a package of "Crook's Corner Stoneground Grits" - the real deal. On the back were four recipes and we decided to give them a try. You know what? I really do like grits, particularly when they're used as a base for something else. This Shrimp and Grits was delicious!

Another food I've never really been interested in trying was okra. However, the next recipe in the Columbia Restaurant Cookbook was Okra Stew Cuban Style, so we gave it a try. It wasn't as bad (read slimy) as I expected it to be, but we won't bother making it again either. If you want to try it, let me know and I'll send you the recipe.
