Or 'eggs equilibrium' which one will it be? I pulled these two word combos out of that little word widget on my side bar - sometimes the pairings are hilarious and sometimes scary, it makes me think that these are my thoughts. Its time to cut the cheese I made way back in June but I dont have a special occasion or anyone to share it with so I will wait a few more days.
Friday we un free food fested with a nice variety of comestibles and yesterday (Saturday) we went to the beach on what was probably the first sunny nice day with no rain in I dont know how long because its pouring again today!
We always take egg salad sandwiches with us in the cooler, look at those perfect yolks - a little mayo a little dry mustard some salt and pepper and slap it on toast.
What does all this mean - it means grits thats what! Chocolatey and delicious grits - mmmmm. Just kidding, while chocolate grits might be ok I have to say I havent tried it - there was some kind of chocolate malt o meal (wheat) when I was a kid, and they still make it, but I didnt like it too much. If you google chocolate grits you get all kinds of things like chocolate grit ice cream, white chocolate grit cake to name a couple so I guess I am never really that far off. No, I am talking about good ol' cheese grits and how to do you kick up corn, with more corn, thats how. I added some sweet Jersey corn to these grits and before you say I wasted some good cob corn you need to keep in mind that once the corn is picked it is only truly sweet for a couple of days before the sugar starts turning to starch - thats why the corn always tasted better 'yesterday.'
Frog legs and grits, catfish and grits, shrimp and grits, eggs and grits, what'll it be?
Good old poached egg sundays and a heaping pile of grits.
The eggs were poached in a miso broth to give a more subltle and unique flavor that is a change from the regular vinegar water poach I usually do. The grits are great and I cant wait to have some with the catfish or some frog legs later on for early dinner.
