    Yep! She had a thread many moons ago about a hammock she made for her dog. "Wayfarer" is her user name. She isn't on the forums much, but I'm proud to say she's still a hanger! I'm on a mission to make all my family members throw their beds out. Two down (mom & brother), four to go.

    Whatever the name, I find neither ground-corn porrige nor chickpea-paste particularly appealing for snacking while in the hammock.
    I have always been under the impression that polenta is made from corn and what I know as grits comes from hominy. I can tell you one thing, I like the yellow polenta, but i don't really care for the white grits.

    Hmmm.... what if they came in "camo"?

    I'll eat any kind of grits, I especially like "speckled heart" grits. But... ymmv, hyoh, and all that jazz.

    You do know that hominy IS corn? But no, not all grits are made from hominy.

    Not all grits are white, and not all polenta is yellow. It all depends on where/how it was made. It seems to be a complicated subject, with much overlap between the two. I can't help but lump them both into the 'corn porrige' category.

    More info here, and of course at grits dot com. There's also a good NPR segment about it.

    No grits were eaten in the making of this post.

    I have really enjoyed following this post the last couple of days, and yes, I like grits, white, yellow, even 220 . I also like the dehydrated vegetarian chili I can get at my local organic coop. They also have good dehydrated refried beans.

    And of course the double ENO is a lot better than the single ENO. I have tried making narrower hammocks, and they just do not work for me. I need to stretch out
