I’m enjoying a new phase in life, one where I don’t have to eat breakfast in my car during an hour-long commute.
However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want a quick, easy breakfast. Mornings still involve wrangling two boys into school clothes, making sure they’re brushed, washed and fed, packing their lunches and backpacks, and getting out the door in time for morning tutorials and study halls.
Now, I love grits. They’ve been a recently-acquired taste within the past few years or so. I love making them homemade on the weekends for breakfast with a dash of hot sauce and black pepper, or with shrimp and tomatoes for dinner.
I recently saw individual serving sizes of instant Quaker grits at Brookshire’s, and I decided to try them. You can either add boiling water to the handy (ie, no dishes required) to-go container, or add water and microwave. I prefer the first method.
They are so delicious that you’d never be able to tell they are “instant,” but instant, they are. I can have breakfast ready in two minutes. It doesn’t get much better than that.
