You know you might be a redneck if.....

World Grits Day is your favorite holiday!!

Well, maybe not a redneck but a southern girl for sure!

So in honor of World Grits Day Kris came up with Grits n' Sticks, an annual celebration for those of us with a love of sticks (knit or crochet) and a hankerin' for a big bowl of grits!
Check these babies out....



Cheese grits baybee!! YUM! And my current almost finished Trekking socks.

Kits also like grits....


The P-Man's a southern man, born and bred and he loves him some cheesy grits! He's getting ready to lick the bowl in this pic :)

Happy World Grits Day!!!

I was going to say, definitely not a redneck, but a southern girl for sure. I love grits and cheese grits are even better!! Yum.

I had no idea there was a World Grits day!!! But somehow it just seems so right! I'm off to fix some!

Suzanne said...

I ADORE grits! My Irish spouse is horrified, but they are lovely. Butter, salt, with a fried egg on the side......good times!

Agnes said...

Woo! There is a world day for grits? I learned of grits when watching "My Cousin Vinny" ... a very funny movie! Never have the chance to eat grits though.
*whispering* I just sewn off the last stitch of my FPS ... it is now in the bath!

AmyP said...

Just like Agnes my knowledge of grits comes *soley* from My Cousin Vinny. It was an oscar-winning film, so I don't feel too bad. I think they are corn, right?

World Grits Day???!?!? Crazy! But I love that color of Trekking!

twig said...

I love grits! I think I have to, having been raised on the northwestern Florida Gulf Coast.

YUM!

Nothin' better than cheesy grits, y'all!!! Those look awesome. I need to make some when I get back home.

Maia said...

Oh, I LOVEloveLOVE grits. I must have been a southerner in a past life. I like them with a fried egg and all chopped/mixed up together (okay, I did learn that in the south - Florida to be exact).

I had no idea there was a World Grits Day or I would have participated. It is allowed for us Yankees, isn't it?

Alison said...

I love grits! My husband, born of northern parents, just doesn't get it.

Nice sock, too!

Kimberly said...

Happy belated grits day. Can you say that? ;-) I must admit, I have never tried them. If you can give me a deb grits recipe, I'm up for it. :-)

Hi Deb: I love the content on your blog, but I need to mention this about it: I sometimes can't take the time to read from your site with the fully loaded page, so I'm reading highlights from my favorites column. I'm struggling a bit with seeing the light green text against the white background. I know this works really well on your blog page. Any suggestions? Thanks! Christine.

Debi said...

Christine- Since you left me no way to contact you, I hope you'll come back to read this....go to my actual site and find the button that says "subscribe to FKD" and use it to subscribe to bloglines. You'll be able to read with black text on a white background. The other option is to highlight the whole page and the writing will appear white on a blue background! HTH!

(oh...well...I'm not into grits, but that's a terrific shot of P-Man!)
Enjoy them...grits aint for everyone! (even some of us who claim to be Southern!)
;)
(((hugs)))

PJ said...

YUM! I have to admit I added cheese to my grits before I ate them!

Jessi said...

Hey Debi,
Just got online after our phone conversation and checked out the sock picture, I know the ones you were talking about! They're in my wardrobe :D When you mentioned the color black and white in conjunction with the lacing, my mind sort of had this visulization of a zebra sock.. lol I have them right beside the beautiful shawl you made for me :) (They even have a special section of the wardrobe!)My brain doesn't work the way it used to.. :( although zebra socks would be kinda cool.. :p (that's not a hint). Love ya bunches!

Carol said...

Shame on me for not knowing! OK, don't get grossed out, but I eat mine like a northerner. Sugar and milk. Yeah, I know...

Monika said...

Mm, grits with cheese, I like that. But my family doesn't. We used to eat more of it, not lately.

Mary said...

Good God! I am sitting here eating a bowl of cheese grits right now! Not Kidding! The Karma! Incredible!

Jessica said...

You know I luv you huney, but YUCK! I hate grits. It's one of the things I just could not come to terms with when living in GA. However, I'm glad to see you could find a holiday you could really sink your teeth into (well, kinda) =)

Opal said...

Those grits look so good! I'm just drooling. Mmm!

Rebekah said...

Nope, I'm not a redneck and I LOVE grits. (I say stomping my feet). But then I've been raised by a Southern woman.

Hmm, I think I need grits for breakfast this weekend.

Catherine said...

Those Blueberry Waffle socks are gorgeous - I have that pattern in the to be knit queue, I may have to move it up several notches!
