Snow in October? How did this happen before Halloween? I think someone is playing a trick on the North East.
Andy and Mya both asked for grits on this cold and snowy morning. It was surprisingly chilly outside when I took these pictures. I was carrying my bowl and camera out onto the deck, not expecting it to be coated with ice, and I slid all the way to the railing. Luckily, I did not drop or break anything, this time!
I made these grits from a bag of Bob’s Red Mill coarse grain organic corn grits. All it takes is 3 cups water, (but I used 2 cups water, 1 cup almond milk for extra creaminess) a dash of salt and a rapid boil, then slowly whisk in 1 cup grits. Turn the heat down to low and keep whisking frequently for about 4 minutes, then in the last minute, shred in a little vegan Monterey Jack and some nutritional yeast. Once removed from the stove and poured into a bowl, top it with some vegan bacon bits and a pat of buttery spread. Sprinkle with sea salt and crank on some pepper and you have a warm creamy breakfast on a cold and snowy morning. I still can’t believe I am saying “snowy”!!!!
