GRITS AND GO-CARTS INQUIRY
Thursday, 02 April 1998 14:39:21 -0600 - - Abbeville, LA
Grits are indeed a southern breakfast dish. We love our grits not only for breakfast but also for supper with grillades! The more butter on them the
better. The more gravy on them the better.
Go carts are here in Louisiana. Wish I could say I approved of them. Too many children are not responsible enough to be on them.
Hope all of you are reading,

My family owned a business next door to a Go-Cart track on Cape Cod. It was
a landmark. Everybody for hundreds of miles around knew right where it was.
It did a phenomenal business.
Haven't seen one here in Hawaii, though.
Grits sounds like the Southern equivalent of poi.

Let me jump in on this conversation about grits. Here in Mississippi, grits are a staple! I like mine with sugar on them, but this upsets my husband. He says the only proper way to eat grits is with salt! Anyway, there is just nothing like a bowl of hot grits on
a cold, wintery morning!

We have students in our classroom who love grits but we do not eat them
every day. Many of our students have family roots in the South.
We do not have go-carts around here. There are raceway areas, we think,
for driving go-carts.

My afternoon kindergarten students were excited about the go-cart question. Of
the sixteen, three of them live in families that own go-carts and eight others have ridden a go cart at sometime or other.
As for grits, only one had eaten grits and the rest had no idea what they were. So I thought we should try them for snack soon.

Go-carting has been a very popular pastime in Maine for as long as I can remember (at least 30 years). There are many places in this "Vacationland" where you can stop, spend a couple of bucks for a multi-lap ride around a short course.....a great family entertainment.
Most places have age or height requirements, and were a big hit for my
own children when they were young.
