Where's the Grits Vintage Postcard?


Grits have been called "The first truly American food."

They date back to 1607, when the colonists came ashore at Jamestown, Virginia. They were met by friendly Native Americans offering steaming hot bowls of " rockahominie," which was softened maize seasoned with salt and animal fat. (I'll lay off the lard)

Corn grits were traditionally preferred to oatmeal in the South because it could withstand heat and humidity. I could go for a steaming bowl of cheese grits right now! Yum.

Editor: Aren't you forgetting to post a vintage postcard?
Marie: Kiss my grits! Lori commented about her yummy breakfast yesterday:) I just couldn't help myself!
