Do any of you down south country folks have a recipe for Cheese and Garlic grits? With all of my recipe books That is not a recipe which is included, I know one of them is written by a Frenchman, the rest must have been written by a Californian and a New Yorker. For those of you who haven't the foggiest idea what grits are, they are kind of like polenta, only different and seasoned better, especially with red eye gravy.

Here's one from Threadgill's, an Austin restaurant with some pretty fair home-style food.
I have field-tested this, it's pretty dang good.

6 cups cold water
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 1 / 2 cups hominy grits
1 tablespoon yellow onion, minced
1 / 4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
8 ounces Velveeta, cubed
1 / 2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350. Bring water to a boil. Add grits and return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes. Remove from heat,add all other ingredients, and put into oiled casserole pan. Bake covered for about 45 minutes, stirring midway. Makes 10 big servings.

Thank you, George.
That sounds a lot like our ER Sec'y in Brooksville, Fla. for a staff breakfast and I've been trying to find it. My oldest granddaughter, my middle daughter and I like it. I've already put it in my file cabinet. I've got a file cabinet in this little computer that is the size of a file room.
Thanks again.

Got to re-reading you eariler post about the sheep co-op. Not sure where exactly you're located, sounds like you're close to St. Orange or Belle Fouche. Both have wool sheds, check with them about the possibilities if there all ready isn't some type of co-op. I know there are a lot of small outfits in that area. Also you might try hanging around the sale barn cafe's in Belle and St. Orange Livestock Exchanges on the days of sheep sales.

Also let me know if you know anyone who raises Angora Goats. I'm looking for some to help with my weed problems.

I didn't mean to confuse you. I know about the wool place. We used to live next to the railroad, my daughter still does. No. I want to do a chicken co-op. As far as the sheep go, when were you last here? There used to be sheep all over the place, when you drove north on 85 from Spearfish. Now they are growing yuppie five acre ranchettes. That are just sitting there doing nothing. It is an outgrowth from Deadwood.

Guess I can't read any better then I can type. Anyway I don't have any thing to do with sheep, just know they do up there. I buy my feed at Dakota Mill there in Belle, and since the Sturgis Livestock Exchange do my business at the Belle Fouche Livestock exchange.

I do try to keep a few chickens but lately it seems I'm only keeping them to feed the foxes and coyetes.

I take it you are raising your chickens free range. Have you considered the chicken tractor. It lets you raise them free range and keeps them safely penned at the same time. Cuts down on feed. and keeps the critters off them. Also cleans up cow paddies and the cattle don't get quite so picky about going back to where they have already eaten where the grass is bright green.

But I kind of like them to run, it keeps the grass hopper down. Also when they hang around the barn & corrals they help keep the flies down.
