New England is embracing the GRIT!
One of the biggest changes in moving to New England, besides the OBVIOUS weather, was the grocery store!!
I cannot buy field peas (my favorite) in the frozen OR fresh section of the grocery. If I search hard I can sometimes find butter beans. We have plenty of the big meaty Lima's ... ick.
Then the grits. I can only find them in select places and then all I can buy is Quaker Oats Quick Grits. They are fine in a pinch. A REALLY big pinch!
This has led me to a life of smuggling. For the past 8 years I stock up when I am in the South. I have even had them shipped. I know, it is an obsession! Nothing like good ol' Stone Ground Grits! Now I know I can head into Boston and get my Grits with Lobster. I am loving this ... Hallelujah Chorus is Singing!!
Have a Wonderful Weekend and hope to see you back next week as I share several projects that are perking along!
