GRITS!....oh Honey don’t say that in the Southern USA.....LOL....it’s boiled corn meal and a staple on a true southerners breakfast plate and with shrimp or with cheese in them...they are an acquired taste and many people in our Northern and Western States have never heard of them!....I LOVE them and they are so good...made by Quaker and a lot like Cream of Wheat!

I like my cornbread dryer also...I like to “ sop up” the juices or broth from the vegetables or meat served with it...although I haven’t eaten like that in a very long time...I grew up in southern Indiana close to the Ohio River and lived in Louisville Ky for a long time...now I am really south in Florida!....we always called it Stuffing if it was stuffed inside the bird and Dressing if it was a side dish....I used to have a strong southern accent but in college I worked hard to change the tone of my voice and the Ky speech patterns....Hoosiers have their very own way of pronouncing a lot of words......sour is sar and our is are....tower is tar and fire is far....my husband a true Yankee from Buffalo had no idea what my Indiana cousin was saying when she asked him if he wanted to go to see the “ far tar” ( fire tower )... gotta love it!

The Great Cornbread Debate!@conniewilkins56 and @bmeadows380 your descriptions of cornbread variations are spot on! I've enjoyed both styles depending on my mood and locale but since living in NM I had no idea that there is a whole other realm of cornbread - I call it southwest cornbread because I've eaten it in AZ, too. It's basically a "dry" style cornbread that has been enriched with whole kernel corn, green chile, and cheddar cheese.

I’ve mixed cottage cheese, sugar free lime jello, lime juice, 1 packet gelatin, and sweetener in a blender and then pour in serving containers and let sit in fridge. It’s very good. No water. It’s like a lime pudding, with jello consistency.

All this talk of cornbread... I come from a land down under (New Zealand, and lived in Australia too) and I don't think I have ever tasted it!
It's summer here right now and I've been really enjoying chilled sparkling water. I used to have all sorts of low-calorie treats that I would eat when losing weight, but I developed severe migraines and artificial sweeteners are one of the worst triggers. Also too much sugar! I had to change almost everything that I used to eat.
I've also been adding a lot of herbs and spices to recipes recently, and cooking vegetarian/vegan with amazing flavour. One recipe for an Eggplant lasagne done in the slow cooker is sooo good.
