Sophie, you recieved some wonderful gifts!! I live in an area that borders the American south and I've never eaten grits. I even lived in the south several years and still no grits!Your scarecrows are delightful!Pat
Oh you're spoiled rotten! What sweet of them to sent you all of those lovely gifts. Never heard of grits... Enjoy your presents and have a great weekend 'letting your hair down'! Mmm that sounds really weird in Dutch LOL!!!
Such lovely gifts - and I love grits, although when I was growing up in the South we never ate them! The scarecrows are fabulous!
Well you are being showered with gifts! Lovely friends to care so much!Enjoy your weekend, and your gifts, Sophie!Melissa
I am so glad that you enjoyed the grits. I worried that they would be to stiff and I had forgotten to tell you to thin them with milk, lol...and the Sophie Bar Cookies are my daughter(in-law)'s favorites...I make them at Thanksgiving, which is the last Thursday in the month of November. Enjoy baking!!!!
Oh..how sweet!! Enjoy all your goodies.Blessings,Robin
So did you really like them or are you just being nice?I bet there is a grits casserole in that cookbook (it is a southern cookbook after all)Try that!!
Sophie,How wonderful. You are quite the American this weekend. Love your scarecrows!!Enjoy!Rosemary
Oh how wonderful to be so loved:) You must try the grits with sugar, milk and a little butter. YUM! Just make sure you add plenty of salt to the cooking water. Grits can be quite bland with out salt.The Scarecrows are precious.Hope you njoy your down time after a busy week.RhondaBTW I taught 9 and 10 year olds. They can be little stinkers but all in all I loved teaching that age group:)
Gosh I guess here in the south I just thought everyone had grits. Blogging is so fun to see what others do. So what kinda ood is the normal there. We love cheese grits.My friends family has then every Thanksgiving. Does your new book have them in there?
I'm sorry, but I'm supposed to get you to tell Tom that Mac says he's his kind of man...this coming from a man who eats texas pete on everything! He can't wait for breakfast in the morning to try it, though he says he may put the Texas Pete on his eggs, since he's afraid it'll ruin the taste of his grits...men...go figure...but if you lived here, you'd be considered a Yankee, cause they eat sugar and milk on their grits lol...except my pal Jacqui Marze, who's from SOUTH Jersey, so she knows better
Sophie - what wonderful gifts you received! How fun!Penny
Wondeful Gifts, How fun , you were spoiled weren't you? Cute Cute Scarecrows, Funny how Spider has an appreciation for them too,lol.Angie
gosh what a wonderful blogger friends you have! i'm green wt envy. i never heard of grit too. and the scarecrows are so cute! enjoy your gifts and hope the week to come will not be too hectic.
LOL...I had to laugh when I read about your grits post. I am from the South and eat them all the time. I like to mix sharp cheese in them and then mix them with scrambled eggs. Love it for breakfast and supper. I have a t-shirt that says: G. R. I. T. S. = Girls Raised In The South. Such nice people to send you all those great gifts. What fun!
LOL! That is too funny, I read both Aunt Sandie and Kari's blogs and wasn't suprised on how you portrayed them here.That letter is so Kari!Glad you enjoyed your gifts. It seems like so much fun.I wanted to ask you to pick up some Regency Novels written by real English Authors. If you have a paypal account, I'll send the money to you that way.just in case my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
ps: I personally like my grits with sugar and milk the same way I like my oatmeal....you can tell I'm not from the south...lol,
Wonderful gifts. I am jealous of your getting grits. :-) I just love grits. So good to hear that Spider is doing better! I will show you Dagi this week on my blog. ~~ Heidi ~~
sophie, how beautifully generous are the blogging community, what fab gifts.Now Grits are anew one on me, even in my half american household so I am off to investigateKaraxx
What wonderful gifts! I LOVE grits!! Love them! Ooh, with a little cheese melting in them...yummy!Sweet scarecrows!! So glad sweet sweet Spider is better. : )I hope your weekend was a restful and happy one!Hugs,Sue
What great gifts! I'm totally and completely jealous over that Rooster calendar. LOVE IT!Try some shrimp and grits. OH MY! Italians eat a form of grits too, we just call it Polenta. Grits are made of hominy and polenta is made with corn meal. So, a good recipe is firm polenta squares with sausage and sauce. YUM YUM!!Love,Julie
Grits! Now we're talking! You've really branched into southern culture... now all you need is some chocolate gravy for your bisquits! It sounds gross, but it really is yummy.
It's so fun to receive gifts in the mail - what a fun week you had getting such goodies. Those scarecrows are very cute - hardly scary at all. You're going to be Americanized before you know it, what with the grits and scarecrows. I'm glad you like the grits. I think I had them once. You were so adventurous with the sauces and everything - and the bars. I bet you had fun. Glad the presents got you through a hectic week.alliewww.mycozyhome.typepad.com
You are such a lucky girl! What great gifts. Enjoy them!
What is this talk of cooking???? Don't you let Aunt Sandi corrupt you. Cooking is not for the likes of US. (Now repeat that over and over again until you regain your senses! ha).Glad you like the scarecrows. And am I to take it that you never received the first thing I sent you?? How disappointing. Remember I told you it was small and flat? Well, it was. It was a post card with Han Solo on the front of it.lol I guess postcards don't travel from here to there very well, huh? Ah well, glad the scarecrows arrived anyway. And by the way, I love grits - you can't have southern roots and not love grits! I like 'em best with tomato gravy. Which I don't know how to cook. (THERE'S a surprise, huh?). I have to wait for a visit to or from family members who DO know how to cook tomato gravy just so I can have some. Hmmm,hmmm, good. I wish somebody would teach Randey how to cook it...yeah, that'd be great. Randey cooking, me eating...that's the way life is SUPPOSED to be. lol (He'd have a stroke if he read that!).
Yummmmm.....grits! I love them with butter and sugar or garlic cheese grits. Then there's grits and greens or, if you like seafood - I don't - shrimp and grits.
