Sorry for all these questions, but I'm intrigued - is grits like polenta? That's a sort of cornmeal cooked up like porridge.

Yes, grits and polenta are in the same family and very simular .... Poridge on the other hand, is a thinner consistancy .... like Malt-o-Meal or Oatmeal.

By definition, Polenta is coarsely ground yellow cornmeal mush that is generally cooked with stock or water and flavored with onions, garlic, and cheese. Polenta is also poured into a greased pan and allowed to cool, set, and harden. It is then sliced, sautéed, fried and topped with everything from cheese to tomato sauce.

Grits are a course cornmeal mush. It originated in the American south and it's made from hominy or plain corn. It's ground until it has the consistency of coarse sand. It's used as a side dish, a breakfast cereal, or as an ingredient in baked goods. Grits are usually cooked with butter, water or milk, and salt — usually by boiling or baking.

Sorry but in my neck of the woods porridge IS oatmeal...there is no difference. But it got me thinking about regional or different words used to discribe the same thing...

Canada:
Pigs in a blanket (small sausages wrapped in pastry) - pigs in a hole
touque - winter hat, usually knitted
parka - winter jacket
social - a get together where the guests purchase a ticket and the proceeds go to the bride and groom to help pay for the wedding and a start in life.
Kangaroo - hoodie

England:
wellies - rubber boots
boot - trunk of car

Anyone got others....thread hyjack or what

Europe Futbol vs. US Soccer
England Boots vs. US cleats
US East Coast Cookout vs. US West Coast BBQ
Canada Hockey Sweater vs. US Hockey Jersey

I can't remember some that are really good. We had friends come over from the UK once and they could never understand back in the day when people wore "Fanny Packs". They just thought it was not right to call them that.

I also like how the Canadians say "eh" after a sentence.
