I find that Mr. Not-as-Picky, Keith – even with all his progress on the adventure – can still be rather fussy about food that looks soft and mushy.
Especially if he has to eat it with his fingers.
If you ask me, some of the best food is soft and mushy – mashed potatoes being the prime example.
The best way to approximate Papa is by simply taking grits – the white ones – and make them a bit thicker than usual.
1/2 cup white grits
1 1/4-1 1/2 cups stock (your preference)
Bring stock to boil. Stream in grits, while whisking constantly. Cook until thickened for the time indicated on package. Pour onto plates and let cool for a moment. The grits will thicken up and can be eaten with the fingers.
