    1) Turn down the heat and stir frequently <VBG>.

    2) That's why 'raw' - cooked plain - grits is just wrong! I almost
    never get grits when eating out at a restaurant.

    Any photos forthcoming?

    Foul! (Fowl?) No fair.
    1) don't be a grits hater and expect love at first sight. It's like grand
    old Scotch; you have to give grits a chance.
    2) don't expect best results from bargain bulk bins
    3) One of our Sunday morning breakfast feasts is grits with red-eye gravy*
    and a small ham steak. I use 'quick' grits. NOT instant and NOT the kind
    that enjoy hours of cooking and stirring. I add at least a cup of cheddar,
    a stingy teaspoon of plain jar mustard, toss in some parsley, sneak in just
    a little garlic and a hefty splat of white pepper.

    Well, darn! So, how did your grits casserole turn out? Did you like it?

    Thanks for the photo - that empanada looks very good! What are its
    innards - er, ingredients (skip the dough part, please)? TIA.

    If you're trying to appeal to his sense of social consciousness, you better
    get up early and pack a lunch.

    I admit I didn't specifically put cheese in the search engine. I wanted
    to see if it would come up without it. And I do believe you would kid
    about that. lol

    Not a programmer but my specialty is, ironically, search engine
    architecture and O&M.

    Yeah, I don't know why google started doing that with quoted search
    terms, and expanding or correcting your spelling in the search results.
    Example, I was just trying to search for a maker of some stainless steel
    sauce pans I have, which say Senak engraved on the bottom and google
    gave me results for snake, sneak, anything BUT "Senak". Not helpful.
