We're in North Carolina at my family's beach house and I'm already inspired by the friendly, yet steamy south. Yesterday I bought home-grown yellow tomatoes for $1.00 per pound and a watermelon so heavy the farmer had to carry it to our car for just $5.00. Sweet corn and candy-like peaches for pennies each. Brunch was a cheese and egg biscuit for me; fried eggs, grits and white toast for Michael - all washed down with eye-popping sweet, sweet tea. That all inspired me to try a personal spin on homemade grits. Of course lots of cheese and butter (so these aren't healthy!), but I added two grilled jalapenos, chilled the whole mix in a pie pan (vacation rentals don't exactly have a plethora of pans), sliced, fried and served warm. It is probably too loose to grill, but I did have that thought.

We're in North Carolina at my family's beach house and I'm already inspired by the friendly, yet steamy south. Yesterday I bought home-grown yellow tomatoes for $1.00 per pound and a watermelon so heavy the farmer had to carry it to our car for just $5.00. Sweet corn and candy-like peaches for pennies each. Brunch was a cheese and egg biscuit for me; fried eggs, grits and white toast for Michael - all washed down with eye-popping sweet, sweet tea. That all inspired me to try a personal spin on homemade grits. Of course lots of cheese and butter (so these aren't healthy!), but I added two grilled jalapenos, chilled the whole mix in a pie pan (vacation rentals don't exactly have a plethora of pans), sliced, fried and served warm.

A professional essay writer can tackle any academic subject and can provide you with a high-quality paper in a timely manner. Their experience and expertise in writing will help you boost your grades. Choosing the right writer for your assignment can make all the difference between getting a passing grade and failing your classes. With the right writer, you can enjoy a high-quality essay while avoiding countless hours of stress. The service's writers are available 24/7, so you can always count on a timely delivery of your paper.
You can also opt for a service that can do my paper for me cheaply, but only if you choose one that's reliable. Cheap writing services are unreliable and may not complete your project on time. Therefore, you must choose a reputable service that will do it on time and meets your needs. You may not want to spend too much on a cheap service that will only end up costing you more money in the long run.
If you're worried about plagiarism, consider hiring a research paper writer. You can contact them directly and get a finished paper within minutes. And the best part is, it's legal! As long as you choose a reputable writing company, you'll be safe. They never break the law and deliver non-plagiarized content. Just be sure to check their reputation and sample work before you choose one. Finally, choose a writing company with transparent policies and testimonials from previous clients.
Moreover, you need to ensure that the paper writer you're hiring is reputable and can deliver the type of work you need. There are many freelance writers online that will do the job for you, so you need to be sure that the writer you hire can deliver a quality paper. However, you should also check the online reviews of the company you're choosing before ordering from them. You should order research papers only when you're certain that the service you're choosing will meet your expectations.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup grits (coarse-ground cornmeal)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 Tbsp butter (I used Earth Balance)
  • 4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 2 jalapenos, grilled, then chopped finely (warning: this will be hot!; cut back to one pepper for spice without fire)

Preparation

  1. Bring milk, water and salt to a boil in a pot over medium heat. Add grits and minced garlic and stir to incorporate. Cook 15 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from heat and add butter, cheese and peppers. Mix well.
  3. You could serve here for soft grits. To make cakes, spray a cake or pie pan with cooking spray. Pour the grits mixture in and chill about 90 minutes.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Cut grits into wedges or bars and fry until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. Serve warm, plain or with fried/scrambled eggs for brunch.
