On the Menu: Grits

October 6, 2013

My Grandma Pat and I met up for dinner last week. I hadn’t had a good catch-up with her since the first week of August before the insanity (also known as the start of the academic year) started. She is one of my most favorite people in the world, a second mom and my goal is to get together with her at least once a month… so I got this one in just under the wire for September. I hold my crazy schedule completely responsible.

We debated for a good thirty minutes about where to go for dinner and ended up at a local favorite: Yesterday’s, since it has a little bit of everything on the menu. Good home-style cooking with lots of popular American dishes. Yesterday’s is an old favorite… I first ate there with my dad one time when we were down visiting from Ohio in the early nineties, my roommate freshmen year and I would walk down from campus to grab dinner from time to time and it has been a good go-to place for many years.

It is typical American food, but it wasn’t until this last visit that I realized how much of a Southern food place it is. They’ve always had country fried chicken and collards on the menu, but they re-did the menu recently and added an entire section on grits. I’ve mentioned what grits are HERE. You know you are in the South when there is a half of a page devoted to this culinary staple of the South. Well done, Yesterday’s!
