The Inspiration for Cheesy Grits
This recipe for Cheesy Grits is a big, big hit in my family. For one thing, it's delicious. But there is a lot of sentimental connection to it as well, it was shared by Major General Niles Fulwyler in 2005, to us he was always "Uncle June" and my son's godfather. He was a great entertainer and lived for many years in New Mexico and later in Idaho. This was one of his favorite recipes and it originated from the San Augustin Ranch. Thank you Uncle June!
