    grits

    I know this sounds crazy/impossible, but do any of you southerners from America know where I might find some grits? I used to have them sent to me, but that has became too expensive. HELP! My tongue is about to beat my brains out wanting some so bad.

    There used to be (probably still is) a little breakfast cafe in Lamai Beach on Koh Samui who dished up every known breakfast to mankind and I'm sure grits featured in a few of their offerings. If I could remember the name you could give them a bell, but I can't....but at least there's hope..

    Excuse me? did i hear you say want to eat grit? i thought only chickens ate grit to harden their eggs. Are you a chook too?

    A quick look on wiki gives me my answer. Porridge. [Never heard of Groats either]

    The word "grits" derives from the Old English word "grytt," meaning coarse meal.[3] This word originally referred to wheat and other porridges now known as groats in parts of the U.K., maize being unknown in Europe in the Middle Ages.

    Not sure about Bangkok, you don' write where you're seeking from.

    Very hard to find in the provinces , as grits (ground up corn) but some specialty foreigner food supply type places have what's called polenta , usually yellow , which is a healthier as white grits like rice has a lot of nutrition stripped.

    Grits or Polenta? - Yahoo! Answers

    When I shipped my stuff over I put some in , wrapped it good, too but bugs colonized it anyway. I love grits , it is the perfect breakfast food, I don't eat bacon anymore but that and butter and salt..

    My grandmother served up grits like potatos at evening meals, too.
    I grew up on it as a breakfast- corn fed, I was.

    I watched the Beverly Hillbillies as a kid and thought that grits was just a synonym for the Aussie word tucker.

    I've gotten American oatmeal, cream of rice and wheat and many breakfast cereals from Villa Market in Bangkok. Their store on Soi11 near Sukhumvit seems to be the best place I've found for American made food here. I'll be in Bkk over the weekend and paln to go there anyway, I'll see if they have them and pm you.

    I happen to have two 5 lb bags in the refrigerator. A couple of times a month I will fix a bowl with bacon and eggs. Come on up to Chiang Mai and I will fix some for you. It seems like I saw on a thread on TV a while back that there were some stores here that sell it. In south Georgia they have cheese grits and fried catfish. Good luck.

    I heard on the grapevine that only pooves eat grits.
    Is this true?
    Is eating grits like when the Jocks eat porridge and wear dresses?

    Would a decent southern Yank feed grits to a negro?

    The darkies probably ate more grits than us uppity white folks. Grits were cheap, so you always got a large helping. Paw always said that grits stick to your ribs.

    Grits are made from ground corn and a popular staple for breakfast in the southern part of America. The people in the north eat it like a cereal with sugar. But a "dyed in the wool", true southerner eats it with a big chunk of butter, salt, and pepper. yum, yum

    Mailing from the states has gotten so expensive, I had to stop ordering it. My breakfast was grits. I never liked cereal and grits filled me up. My mom used to save the left over grits during the week and on weekends, she would fry them up like ho cakes. When I wanted a snack, many times I would eat left over grits. LOL I love them. yum, yum

    my mom used to fix cheese grits, but I always favored regular grits. Grits, fried catfish, and hushpuppies, coleslaw made with Miricle Whip, and baked beans and I would think I've gone to heaven.

    withnallstroke, I hate to burst your bubble, but there isn't a "decent southern yank". Your either a southerner or a yankee. BIG difference in the two.

    Here's the Quaker Oats contact info for Thailand.
    Contact Information for Pepsicola International.

    Here's a very good recipe -five stars- for grits that recommends Quaker Oats Grits.
    Southern Grits Recipe - Food.com - 90322

    The Thai Visa Forum already has this covered. http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/218863-quaker-oats/

    I'm fairly sure that these guys will ship to Thailand, but from reading the cost of shipping is fairly high. http://www.buythecase.net/brand/Quak...FQQCQAod2AJynw

    You probably would want to stay with the "Original" flavor, but you may want to ask about these other flavors.
