    Those 2 are from actual small mills that stone grind their grits. The others listed are commericially available products that sell on regular grocery store shelves here and are mass produced, not stone ground and not nearly as good.

    I tried to find a site that sells Suber Mill Grits. Those are THE best. We can get them at the local farmers market. They not only grind their own, but they grow the corn too. I haven't been able to find a site that sells them over the internet.

    They're really good that way, too! Hubby has developed his own interpretation of hot-crash (or crash-hot, or whatever they're called) potatoes, and they're great!

    The fingerlings? Maybe I need to get those? I had boiled mine so that they were slightly underdone, and I scrubbed them to get the dirt off, but I didn't peel or puncture them and the blue leeched out anyway. They didn't have the fingerling blue potatoes two weeks ago when I was there, but they did today, although my parents just brought me dinner so I didn't buy any potatoes. Hmm. This is now going to be my personal quest, I can just feel it.

    Thanks for the suggestions, all, I knew you would have ideas for me!

    I was packing my lunch this morning and had a half-full container of lowfat, strawberry Kefir, and a little left in a container of lowfat eggnog. I poured the eggnog into the Kefir bottle with a little lowfat milk and it is delicious! Strawberry eggnog. Who knew?
    Count your blessings!

    Love it when leftovers turn into delicious serendipity!

    Once again, I am looking to experience a kumquat this season.

    Whenever I hear the word kumquat it makes me think of W. C. Fields, one of the best comedians of all time. He always called his lady friends his "little kumquat."

    I LOVE kumquats. They won't be in season for a while, though.
    Count your blessings!

    Clementines will be in season soon. I can't wait.
