I'm southron to the bone and I eat my grits with a couple of over-easy
eggs on top, break 'em and mix up with the grits. My daddy ate his grits
the same way and he was from Dry Prong, Louisiana. Mom didn't eat grits,
said it was cow food. She was raised in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri.

Shoot, I eat rice with everything and can look at a field of rice and
tell you how much gravy it'll take to cover the harvest. My wife is from
Maryland and only ate rice as a pudding or a breakfast cereal before she
married me. Grits ain't nothing but Gawga rice.
