Cornmeal vs Grits ... or both

Corn is an important part of our diet. If need be (and it IS coming), we can make our own tortillas and chips. Cornbread isn't that difficult to make, but our little family of 3 love to eat grits with eggs - about once a week.

So, when money is tight, which do we choose? Should we stock up on cornmeal, which is more versatile, or grits, which we use more often? Or one month cornmeal, and the next, grits.

And when we grow corn, should we get seeds to make cornmeal, or figure out how to make grits from special corn?

How does YOUR family prefer to eat corn?
