As a native of the western part of Virginia, I eat grits as a hot

cereal: with sugar, butter, and milk. However, I never had grits until I

attended college in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area. Growing up, my

family served hominy, from which grits are derived.

Does any of you Southerners know about the supposed 5 ways of

serving grits? I've only been through North Carolina once, five years

ago, so the restaurants there are my only experience of this. I seem to

remember that grits could be ordered "plain", "covered", etc., and

*"smathered"*. That last is a word I've never heard elsewhere in

America. Any info out there?
