Hot Grits

I’m truly a Southern Belle. Born and bred in Eufaula, Alabama. If you know anything about us country girls, it’s that we don’t play about our food, especially our grits.

Maybe a month or so later my husband and I finally ran into these Jim Dandy grits at Publix! Or maybe they found us? Super excited, I rushed home to make one of my all-time dinner favorites: fried catfish with cheese grits. Hot grits.

Success, finally! I had really missed the taste, but I think I more so missed the comfort that that down home meal brought back to me. Connections to memories from food are so real to me. Suddenly, those hot grits began to tell me a story, and one that I needed to be reminded of.

You see, I realized that more than the meal, I had been missing myself. The greatest component to any meal is love. You can feel it in the food, and that’s what truly gives you the feeling of fullness. That meal made me come back to myself. When I was a little girl, let’s say around elementary school age, I had a pastor who i absolutely LOVED! And he would always push me

Lunch Break: The Cheap Way

Bienvenidos! It’s Resha K. checking in here with some seriously helpful information. If you’re anything like me, then you’re always looking for the next best deal, okurr. Let’s talk about lunch break, the cheap way.

Most of us average people get around 30 minutes to an hour for lunch, right? With that being said, no one wants to spend a bag on a meal that they can’t even savor. And in my best Sweet Brown voice, “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. Can I get an Amen? Don’t worry, Big Reesh has your back!

Did y’all know that you can eat lunch at your local Sam’s club… and for less than $5? GASP!

Maybe I’m late, but it’s worth the read anyway.

Yeah, you read that correctly. Let me stop you in your tracks, because I know you’re probably thinking, “I don’t have a membership”. Guess what? You don’t need one! Eating at the cafe doesn’t require a membership, just your coins. I personally am a member, but I just recently discovered that the cafe was open to the public. My coworkers and I did the hard work and research for you guys on our lunch break, to get these cold, hard facts. You’re welcome.

For as little as $1.50 plus tax (Huntsville,AL), you can enjoy a Nathan’s hot dog with multiple condiments, along with a large choice of fountain drink choices. Other meal options include pizza, chicken bites, frozen yogurt, and occasional limited time offers.

To each his own, honey, but my thin pockets and I will be dining at Sam’s Club for lunch break.

This was by no way an ad for Sam’s Club.

Truth Is I’m Tired

Y’all. Today is really one of those days. I’ve been nearly asleep at my cubicle all day long. Each hour of the 8 hours I worked was met with my own drowsiness and lack of motivation. And by now, you’re probably thinking, “Why would I care?”. Truthfully, I probably wouldn’t care either! (You can laugh now guys, I am)

But seriously. I know someone, somewhere in the world is feeling exactly the same way. Having those Monday vibes on a Tuesday? Me too, friend! Sorry not sorry to say I’m about to play devils advocate for a moment: Let’s just try again tomorrow! What? Did y’all think I was coming to deliver a sermon about pushing through your tiredness?

It’s okay to rest every now and again. Everything works with moderation, right? Maybe your body wants to rest, or in most cases, NEEDS to rest. Skip the gym tonight, sweetie. Put that chicken back in the freezer and order a pizza. You know you didn’t want to cook anyway!

It’s really okay y’all. The world will still need saving tomorrow.
