Grits and Sticks

Kris informed everyone through her blog that April 14th is world grits day. She and Katie decided to do a Grits with Sticks photo shoot. I of course had to play along. Now I love some grits in the morning. And my favorite way to eat them is so so bad for you.

I cook up some bacon, crispy, crumble the bacon in the cooked grits and then, are you ready for it? I pour some bacon grease into the grits. OH MY GOODNESS. It is the most wonderful breakfast in the world. I can see my Dad now, shaking his head as he thinks how my arteries are clogging. But really, I don't do that too grosses my husband out (Damn them Northeners)

I am headed to Florida next month and I plan to bring some grits back. All that I can find here are quick grits, and instant. Quick I will buy, instant? No way. And while I am there? I will eat at a Cracker Barrel. I LOVE Cracker Barrel and there isn't one anywhere around here. My sister lives in Gainesville, FL and I hope that there is one by her. Ah, 5 days of not being Mom. I can not wait. I so deserve this.

Now for my Grits and Sticks photo.

This is the Bijou Scarf from Morehouse Farms. I keep dropping stitches in it and not finding them for an inch or two. I think it's the lace weight yarn and the size 11 needles. This should be a fast knit but it's not. At least not for me.

The colorway is Meadow and it is just beautiful. I really do love the yarn. I will be ordering from them again!

Dinner and Children Call!

Edited to add: I do not add ALL the grease from the bacon, just about a teaspoon to the whole pot. It adds the bacon flavor to all the grits.

Thank you to everyone

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for their words of support for my Brother in law. He is out of the hospital now, still in a lot of pain but happy to be home. He was actually shot 6 times but 5 hit his vest. Thank God he was wearing one.

I have started a scarf out of Morehouse Merino Lace, the Bijou scarf. It's beautiful yarn and I think that my Sister in Law will really like it. It's more of an accsory scarf, they love to go out to eat so I think it will get used.

I havent done too much knitting because my hand has been hurting. I went today to get x-rays done. I think it is just a tendonits and really nothing serious.

A better post tomorrow with pictures. I am beat. I spent the day at preschool helping with the Easter party......WOW 32 3 and 4 year olds can really wear you out!
