Ok Kathryn,
Grits are a the by-product of grinding corn into meal.  When the corn is ground, it is passed through a screen…the stuff that sifts through the screen is corn meal…the stuff that doesn’t = grits.  I guess because it’s too "gritty" to be corn meal.  This co**** corn meal is used to make a "porridge-like" substance.  I’m not a big grits fan…which I think is heresy in the South, but there it is.
Now, one for you…after reading your thread…what is a fortnight?  I thought fortnight went out of vogue years (many fortnights?) ago.  People still use that as a measurement of time?  I could look it up, but I’ll let you tell me what it is.
