@Hotfoot4047: Grits are very similar to polenta.

Delicious! I've made this dish several times. The only change I make is to add an extra clove of garlic.

For Hotfoot - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GritsDo you have something like cream of wheat? Somewhat similar, but a larger texture to the pieces. I had my first grits when I moved to TX back in 1976. I grew to love them!
