Hey Rob, talking of the bunch of 'F' graders who check these forums for 'naughty' insertions, its a real hoot what their 'alternatives' are on the 'smell checker' Write in HiFi and it suggests FiFi , so now i have a FiFi in every room, boy, do i love twiddling little buttons.
Write 'blog' which again it doesn't recognize but suggests appropriately 'Bogs' so get yourself a double displacement 'flood pump' suck those darn 'bogs' dry and maybe that will get the 'Blogs' working again.
By the way, 'bog' is a good Anglo Saxon word for Toilet, etc, etc, so if your blogs disappear they've probably been flushed down the pan,
cutiepie01 write: haha Sharpie, I know you didnt think grits were made up. i was just teasing ya'. Actually Sunshine is right about the cornmeal mush being like grits. you can probably use that recipe and try some for yerself. I made some this morning with 2 slices of velveeta stirred in the pot. wow it made them creamy and yummy. But Sharp, back to that japanese dishwater soup. Did you ever think that they laugh at us when we consume it? I think its a joke that they play on us. Do you think they really drink that stuff? Or they just make it so they can laugh at us?
I once looked up whatchamacallit in the dictionary. It was defined as...same as thingamajig.
MM, please quit deleting my punch line. Do you even know what a thingamajig is? Well, it is the same thing as a whatchamacallit. If you don't know what a whatchamacallit is then look it up in the dictionary. You really don't want to get me angry do you? I'm not nice when I get angry.
Do you think they would have the same response to henway or tyecost? These people really need a suthern dicksonary!!! ROFLMAO

Do y'all use Miracle Whip or mayonnaise? Which is it?
Growing up Mom tried to serve us Grits once - YUK!!!! MW or Mayo?: all we had was MW.....after I left home, I discovered Mayo and never went back. Along the same lines, all we drank was whole milk and I hated it - always left some weird film on my teeth. And then along came 2%. And yes, I'll drink it with my chocolate cake!
Hey cutie I knew they were not made up, have just not seen them...but after reading SSS's description...cream of wheat...it seems to me I've heard that before. I think I'd like to try them home cooked to get a true taste of them. We have Cream of Wheat in Canada, but nothing called Grits or served up the way you guys describe.
Hey in Turkey they serve slices of tomato, cucumber, bread, and boiled eggs for breakfast. For lunch & dinner it is mashed aubergine (eggplant), diced aubergine, or chunky aubergine. Have that for two weeks...You can hardly wait to get back to US/Canada for some good 'ol home cooking! lol Pancakes, hash browns, bacon/sausages, omellettes....

cutiepie01 write: Hmmm... Sharp I think they are ground from corn, they are like the consistency of cream of wheat. Only you put alot of butter and salt and pepper on them. The southerners chop up thier over easy eggs and mix the grits in them. Even tho Im not sure exactly what they are, I sure love them. I think maybe we need to ask Gem to be for sure what they are. Do they even sell them in Canada? Every restaurant down here serves grits for breakfast. I found out that in New Hampshire they serve baked beans with breakfast! That is something that belongs with barbeque, as far as I can figure. I just dont think they go with eggs but I guess its a new england thing that I dont care to try unless I was having ribs or roasted hog for breakfast.
sharp1 write: Excuse my ignorance, but I don't know what 'grits' are either! lol I picture them to be like 'hash brown potatoes' shredded. What are grits? Edible, right?
Just search for "grits" and type in DubU DubU DubU. Grits. COMe and see what you get...
cutiepie01 write: sunshine, youre supposed to grits in your mouth hunny. oh you will learn when you get here. Im gonna have to teach you the ins and outs of grits when you get here. but for Gods sake you'll look foolish here if you keep putting them in your eyes. silly girl

seattlesunshine write: PeggySue,
Come 'er you two...group hug, you, too, Sharpie! There, better now?
Let's have a drink.
Everytime you two start in your with your stories, I start bawling like a wee baby! Pardon me, I need a box of tissues!
Hey you said I was sensitive! Maybe I got some grits in my eyes, ok?
Rob and Gem were throwing them. Even I have some good sense about grits. What are they?
PeggySue1961 write: Hi Seattle and Cutie!!! Gosh it is so good to see the two of you. Have been having just a blast with you this week. Has been a long and hard but good week. Last night was beat so I just read the forums and this morning had a funeral to go to. The last company I worked for, became friends with the family that owned it. The mother died. Anyway, it has been a lot of fun. A good stress release.
Take Care both of ya.
Sorry to hear that, my friend. Take good care.
Peggy you are so funny! Even though it takes foooorreeever for your posts to show up, please for the love of all that exists, keep them coming.
