1. Mashed potatos with ham and cheese
But wait -- there's more. Top it off with salsa. Can you do that with grits and if you did, would it taste as good?

15. no, from south Georgia
it is actually very good. The doughnuts make the ale taste extra hoppy, then the doghnuts taste extra sweet. It is the speedball of junkfood.


I also like Porkchops and applesauce (Vegetarian- but I watched the Brady Bunch)

7. It's never too late! I'll help:
Add 2 cups quick grits to 6 cups boiling chicken broth - lower heat and cook until thick - about 5 minutes.

Add a dash of tobasco, salt & pepper, some garlic powder or minced garlic or (best of all) a Trader Joe's garlic cube.

Add 1/2 cup milk (I used 1%), 1/2 cup butter and mix.

Add 3 beaten eggs, and most of 16 oz grated cheese and mix.

Pour into buttered casserole dish, top with remaining cheese and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes.

Swoon.

14. Nope - never! Ham is baked with a good homemade glaze.
But I do put them on the fork together - you get the two distinct flavors in one mouthful. It's awesome!

9. It sounds good, but I've never tried it.
I'm fond of the following combinations:

Macaroni and cheese, baked, with bacon and tomatoes
Jam and cheese sandwiches
Diced hash browns with cheese and bacon
Shredded wheat and almond/raisin granola
Grilled cheese sandwiches and mint-chip malts


Hmm....a lot of my combos have cheese in them. Maybe cheese is the tie that binds. Er...so to speak. ;)
