Grits

I love grits but I know it's a regional thing. Or as we say, a "Southern thang"! I truly think that most people would love them if cooked right. If you try to eat unsalted grits, they are very bland. But salt to taste and they are a comfort food. Cornmeal is nothing more than finely ground, dried corn. Grits are usually made from dent corn. This starchy variety of corn is less sweet than sweet-corn and it becomes smooth and creamy as it cooks. This type of corn is treated with lime to remove the hull which technically makes it hominy. After the treated corn is dried, it is coarsely ground to become hominy grits. Most grits are ground more coarsely than cornmeal. Stone ground grits are whole grain grits that retain the germ. The stone ground grits take 45 minutes to cook fully, but they have more health benefits. Instant grits will cook up in about 5 to 10 minutes. Polenta is similar to grits except that it is made with flint corn. Native to Italy, polenta is made by coarsely grinding up dried flint corn. This variety of corn has a hard starch in the center, which gives polenta its characteristic grainy texture.

2 cups water
1 1/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick-cooking grits, not instant (I use Quaker)
1/4 cup butter

Directions:
1. In a small pot, bring water, milk, and salt to a boil.
2. Slowly stir grits into boiling mixture.
3. Stir continuously and thoroughly until grits are well mixed.
4. Let them boil. Then cover pot with a lid, lower the temperature, and cook for approximately 20 minutes stirring frequently.
5. Add more water if necessary.
6. Grits are done when they have the consistency of stiff cream of wheat.
7. Stir in butter.
8. Serve with additional butter on top of each portion and add salt to taste.

You can use white or yellow grits. They get their color from the type of corn that is milled, some say there is a negligible difference in taste, with the yellow grits being sweeter and having a slightly more assertive corn flavor.


By adding milk, it makes them creamier. You can also add shredded cheese (any kind) to make cheese grits. And you can include them in recipes. I like to put some cooked grits in a mug, add cheese and a raw egg (whip it). Stir and add to the microwave to cook the egg. It makes an egg and cheese grits for a satisfying breakfast. Like rice, they also make a good base.

Grits and Tomatoes

Grits (cooked)
Salt and pepper to taste
Ripe tomato

Directions

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon salt
8 tomatoes

Directions
In a small pot combine dry grits, 1 1/2 cups water, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer until grits are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool.
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Beat the eggs in a large bowl, then stir in the cooled grits, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, and Asiago cheese. Stir in the garlic powder, parsley, crushed red pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix well.
Slice the top off of each tomato. Use a spoon to hollow out the tomatoes, leaving the outer shells (approximately 1/4 inch thick) intact. Fill each with the grits mixture. Arrange stuffed tomatoes on prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until light golden brown, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken broth
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Directions
Bring water, grits, and salt to a boil in a heavy saucepan with a lid. Stir in half-and-half and simmer until grits are thickened and tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

Sprinkle shrimp with salt and cayenne pepper; drizzle with lemon juice. Set aside in a bowl.

Place andouille sausage slices in a large skillet over medium heat; fry sausage until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat.

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Retain bacon drippings in skillet. Transfer bacon slices to paper towels, let cool, and crumble.

Pour the butter-flour mixture into the skillet with andouille sausage, shrimp, and vegetables. Place the skillet over medium heat and pour in chicken broth, bacon and Worcestershire sauce, cooking and stirring until the sauce thickens and the shrimp become opaque and bright pink, about 8 minutes.

Just before serving, mix sharp Cheddar cheese into grits until melted and grits are creamy and light yellow. Serve shrimp mixture over cheese grits.

There are so may variations of shrimp and grits. Try different things. Instead of andouille sausage, try fried bacon. Use different cheese. Add tomatoes. Top with cilantro or chives.

1/2 cup butter, divided
3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

Beat together the eggs and milk in a bowl, and pour into the skillet. Lightly scramble, then mix into the grits.

Pour the grits mixture into the prepared baking dish. Dot with remaining butter, and top with remaining cheese. Season with salt and pepper.

Two drunken mountaineers were being ejected from the train by the train crew and in return were giving the trainmen more than they could do to put them off, when the conductor of the train asked for assistance. Sheriff Smith at once responded and in the melee got an ugly gash in the head by a rock thrown by one of the ruffians. He in return shot at the fleeing party who got away. The other one was captured and brought to Morristown where he was jailed.


But then tragedy struck. One month after taking office he accidentally killed himself.








Sheriff Smith Killed
On last Thursday morning, Sheriff W.H. Smith was accidentally shot with his own pistol. He was in the court room opening a box of court supplies, when his pistol, a 38-calibre Colt, fell from his pocket on the floor and exploded. The ball struck him in the left breast, passing through his body and through his lungs. He walked into the Trustee's office and sat down. All the doctors in town went to render aid, but they soon found that he was beyond their reach. His wife was informed by phone at Ottway 10 miles distant, of the accident and in two hours was at his bedside. In the afternoon he was taken to the residence of Richard Hall, where he died Friday 10:00 a.m.
On Friday afternoon he was taken to his home at Ottway and was buried Saturday morning. Rev. W.A. Brown conducted the funeral services which were held under the auspices of the Odd Fellows.
Mr. Smith was elected sheriff at the last August election, it being his first term. He was popular and well liked by all. His family consists of his wife and eight children.
About 1500 persons attended the funeral, attesting the esteem in which he was held by his neighbors and friends.

RESOLUTIONS

RESOLVED That we are deeply sensible of the irreparable loss that we sustain in the death of Mr. Smith, and while we bow in humble submission to the will of Him who regardeth the sparrow's fall, we commend the upright walk and exemplary life of the deceased brother, and
RESOLVED, 2nd, That we extend to his widow and children our sincere sympathy, assuring them that since in the death of their husband and father they sustain a great loss, they should find consolation in the fact that they still have the priceless heritage of the good name which he left behind him.
RESOLVED, 3rd, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the county papers for publication, and also to the family of the deceased.
Oscar M. Duggers
J.D. Brown
W.K. Mitchell
Hon. J.R. Todd, who assumed the office of Sheriff after the death of Sheriff W.H. Smith, is conducting the affairs of his office in a most satisfactory manner. Mr. Todd very properly retained all of Sheriff Smith's deputies and is endeavoring to carry out his policies. Mr. Todd will hold the office until the county court elects a successor.



Sheriff Smith Killed
At 11 o'clock Thursday morning while opening a box of cuspidors in the courthouse, Sheriff W.H. Smith dropped his pistol on the floor. The pistol fired and the shot entered his left breast passing through his body. He walked into the Trustee's office and sat down. Physicians were summoned and a cot was provided. The physicians found the Sheriff beyond the reach of medical aid. The family was notified at Ottway about 2 hours after the accident. His wife was at his bedside. At four o'clock, he was taken to the residence of Mr. Richard Hall on Summer Street, at which place he died at 5 a.m. Friday.
On Friday morning the body was taken in charge by the firm of J.J. Mitchell and Co., and on this, (Friday) afternoon, was taken to his home at Ottway, Funeral services will be conducted from the Mt. Pleasant church Saturday morning at 10 a.m., by Rev. W.A. Brown. The funeral will be held under the auspices of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, which order the deceased belonged.
Mr. Smith is survived by his widow and eight children, two brothers and two sisters. He was 42 years of age.
Mr. Smith was elected Sheriff in the August election and was inducted into the office on Sept 1st. He served just one month of his term. But in this time he had won the confidence and esteem of the people of the county, to such an extent that his untimely death is regarded not only as a loss to his family and immediate friends, but a distinct loss to the good citizenship of the county.
Mr. Smith was a self-made man, and his standing in the community in which he lived, attested his good qualities as a neighbor and friend.
In his home he was all that a devoted husband and father could be.
Before his death, in conversation with his brother, Mr. H.M. Smith...

Little Blaire Fall 2018

One of our grandnieces, Blaire, was giving the photographer the stink eye during this Fall portrait. It was so cute. This is my digital scrapbook page of her Fall picture. I had to try to catch the "cute" with the little Fox.
