In the north, grits are called "polenta" and they cost ten times as much.

I never heard of Polenta, but now since I konw they're grits, I can avoid paying 10 times more for them by not buying them. Thanks for the heads up.

I actually liked quinoa. If you don't add any flavor to it, it probably won't cause heart burn.

I think I've heard someone else describe grits as 'MaltaMeal' or somesuch.  I've never had that, so I can't really compare.

As ever, though, Wikipedia has an entry for it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grits

I actually rather like them.  Lightly flavored, they taste pretty good.  You could probably order some online for much less than what I guess it sells for up there.

Oh, you can *get* grits here, they're just not all that popular unless you're eating at the home of someone who used to live in the South.

I quite like them, actually.

Ah. Corn.  Well, not my favorite food, but I do like popcorn. I'll eat that instead.

I found a new brand of yogurt in my store, it's vanilla flavored, has real sugar not fake, BUT the container claims it has only 12 grams of sugar. Most flavored yogurts I've ever seen have close to 30 grams of sugar per container and I'm wondering how they're doing it (because it tastes good) or if they're lying.

Do you want any corn grits shipped up there? I can run by the mill this weekend. Two of my relatives have watermills in the area. There's nothing like stone ground grits, but you will have to soak these overnight.

We can *get* the corn grits here; the problem is that very few people know how to prepare them properly.

That's always a treat.  Yum ... garlic.

I think I may have a new favorite "put this in everything" foodstuff:

shredded cabbage

I bought a package of "cole slaw mix" on a whim the other day, in a hurry to get home and make dinner for the family (which is why I didn't just buy a head of cabbage and shred it myself). I intended to make tacos that night, and I know that in warm climates, they often use shredded cabbage instead of lettuce because it doesn't wilt so quickly.

Well, the kids ate it up, they loved the extra crunchiness and mild flavor.
And I was happy because I know it's nutritious. Score.

Now I'm munching on a sandwich, which I threw a little of the shredded cabbage onto for extra crunchy munchy goodness. Glad I did. I often used to dress a sandwich with cole slaw, but the extra fat in the dressing isn't quite so desirable. This is going to be good.

Of course, when my wife saw the bag of shredded cabbage she asked me to make some homemade cole slaw for her this weekend. I'll enjoy doing that too. :)

There are some great asian recipes for shredded spicy cabbage that are good too. No fermenting required.

Spicy cabbage in egg rolls. Yummy.

With half a bag of shredded cabbage left, we made cole slaw. Since we only let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours for the flavors in the dressing to meld, the cabbage itself was still nice and crunchy when we ate the slaw.
It was really good. We'll be doing this again.

Ok, so there are quite FEWER "Thin Mints" in the box this year. Did they think we wouldn't notice? I'm gonna have to learn to make these things myself instead of getting ripped off by the Girl Scouts every year. For what they charge for a couple of boxes I could buy an enrobing machine.

I also noticed the Boy Scouts tins of popcorn are much smaller this year... they used to have the can that was >1ft tall... now the cans (for the same price as the large can last year) is only appx 8" tall...

A girl scout leader pointed out that the Girl Scouts lock in the price of a box of cookies for five years with the bakeries, so the bakeries are forced to downsize the boxes to compensate for the increasing price of ingredients.

Seems rather stupid to lock in a price and not lock in the size of the box.

At some point I may just start making a cash donation to the troop instead.
