blackberry grits

On our way home from the beach yesterday we stopped at a little breakfast place called, "Another Broken Egg". It is JUST my kind of restaurant...all kinds of spinachey, avocadoey, mushroomey dishes. I am typically a savory breakfast kind of girl, but something caught my eye:



I love grits. I love blackberries. Would I love blackberry grits? My initial thought was no, because I typically do salt and pepper on grits...but what.the.hell. I am on vacation. I ordered.

I didn't take a picture, and for that I am deeply sorry. They looked, well, kind of gross. A bowl of grits, with some blackberries and blackberry juice sort of pooled on top. I tentatively tried a tiny taste, and oh.my.god. SO delicious. I just googled the restaurant so I could see where I could go get another sample, so I could do a better job of trying to pick it apart so I could make it myself. I was FULL ALL DAY after eating those grits (well, and half a spinach, mushroom and tomato omelet and potatoes, but still!). But alas, they seem to only be around the beach...

Today I am back at worky work, and it sucky sucks. Vacation > work. Even with my 'sister-wife' (GROSS) and drinky dad.

OH, I tried to Facebook stalk my Dad's girlfriend and while she is on FB, and UGH, we have friends in common, she does not have an 'open profile' so I would have to friend her. uh. NO.

That whole business about your Dad's GF is very (insert Twilight Zone music here).
But regardless, I agree with you--no matter the circumstances, vacation > work.
Also? I think your Nike girl is being sort of a passive-agressive brat playing video games and talking about not having any energy. :p

I don't know why I called her your sister-wife, I meant to call her your mom/sister...maybe because I'm reading a book on polygamy.

I think blackberry grits sound good, I'm gonna go get some one day.

I think vacation with mom < work..I'm just saying.

Oh, you SO can NOT friend her!!!!! Ugh, that would be SO GROSS! At least you probably won't have to put up with her again for awhile, right?

I agree. But I think that it would be wierder for me, she would be my Aunt/Grandma... which is wierd just typing. Please don't let Mr. P do something like that!

And I think grits are a grain.

The blackberry grits sound fantastic. (Fatinah, grits are a hot cereal made with corn - popular in the Southern U.S.) I was hoping you would hint towards a recipe. I might have to try my own.

I am on day 8 of a 10 day vacation and not looking forward to going back on Monday. Vacation > work.
