That's a great looking breakfast!  

How were the grits with chicken broth?

I may give that an honest try. That is how I cook rice, in broth.

Now is that sorta admitting that the other "try" was a bit "dishonest"?   :)

Nooooo.... I never mentioned any other incidents. You mean like brushing my teeth with them and the yet to be mentioned getting my tractor unstuck off of glare ice? All legitimate good honest tries at usage.  I'm thinking it might even be worthwhile to try and use some for oil dry.

I bet it will work, shoot pretty sure oil dry will work for grits.

Yall are overlooking the best alternative use of grits.  Mixed with some sugar, water and yeast and allowed to sit unmolested for a couple of weeks, grits will produce a large volume of neutral spirts when distilled!

Grits are like rice - eat too many and you feel like a blimp for a while! :D
As far as a still, um no?   ;)

Some of the posts here give the impression that you have to be from the South to appreciate grits.  I was in Michigan this last week and found that one of the Milan restaurants serves grits.  So I guess there are people up north who eat grits.

I was laughing about this thread while talking to my daughter yesterday, and she said some of the best grits she ever had was in New York City, apparently they had cheese and jalopenas in them.

   Reminds me of the snake oil medicine salesman on "The Outlaw Josie Wales" selling his bottles of elixir to cure everything and the old Cherokee "Chief" telling him "You drink it." I wonder how grits do on stains? :D

I like that grits in a bowl. Good idea. That way it don't touch the good food and us Yankees can take it and set it on the floor for the dog.
