Ok, so I am a relatively talented and experienced cook. No scholastic or restaurant training, but I've made 1000s of meals. Like many of you, I'm sure, I get tired of trying to think of new things to make for dinner and occassionally ask my wife for ideas. Most recently, being from North Carolina, she asked me to make grits.
Now, being from New Jersey, grits are as unfamiliar to me as clean air and people with good manners. I need help with this one and my searches to date have proven unsuccesful.
As a first step, I recently ordered quick cook grits from Anson Mills (both white and yellow). As per their instructions, I have stored the box in my freezer. Consequently, the package taunts me each time reach for an ice cube. So please, can anyone point me in the right direction or provide me with a dinner plan in which grits might star?
