Thread: Hominy!

    Default Hominy!

    Angela found some cans of hominy at the store a few weeks ago and asked to
    try it. She doesn't remember that I used to try to serve it to her.
    Neither she nor my husband like the stuff. I bought both the white and the
    yellow and they both find it disgusting. I just love the stuff!

    I tried a recipe that my mom sent me when we lived in CA. It had hominy,
    bacon, cheese and I think milk in it. Loved it! But they wouldn't eat it.
    So I never made it again.

    Oddly, I had trouble finding hominy and black eyed peas when we lived in CA.
    Not too many places carried them. And I think I had to buy the black eyed
    peas frozen.

    No problems here. These are the store brand. And they are yummy! Yeah, I
    know... Not the best thing for a diabetic to eat, but I haven't had them in
    years! And I probably won't have them again for years.

    I love hominy grits. As with pinhead oats, I only have small portions and
    not often.

    That is a mystery to me. I've never been in a store in CA that didn't carry
    both, with one or two different brands even.

    Really? Well we didn't have many stores to choose from where I lived.
    There were two Safeways and two Albertsons. Oddly I believe Albertsons is
    the store here where I bought the hominy. Oddly, the various Albertsons
    seem to all carry different things. They did in CA and they do here as
    well.

    I only learned of another grocery store shortly before we moved. My
    neighbor told me to go there for the food for Angela's party because it was
    kosher. Knowing nothing of Jewish dietary laws, I just went there and
    bought what she told me to buy. At the party, she told me the meat was
    good. And then I asked her if she had tried the cheese, not knowing that
    she couldn't eat them together. Anyway... It was an odd little store. It
    reminded me of a 1960's grocery store, right down to the checkout stands.

    I think that store is no longer there. When I learned that we might be
    moving back there, I looked online for sources for Angela's gluten free
    foods. I found a health food/organic store that appeared to be right where
    that little store was. It is possible that the deli counter is still there
    though as it was owned by some brothers who were not part of the store
    itself.
