#27824: [insert swear word here] I took photos of Polenta Facile for colleenmomof2, but I don't know

how to order the darn photos. These grits are cooked in a glass bowl sitting inside a pot of simmering water with a plate for a lid (my version of a double boiler) and you do nothing, absolutely nothing, but stir it 4 times...once every 30 minutes. I've attached the Photobucket link, but the images are all cattywampus and out of order. And I was SO PATIENT TAKING THOSE PHOTOS!

There are nine photos in all:
1. adding grits to water over double boiler
2. "plate" lid
3. Zero time
4. 30 minutes elapsed
5. 60 minutes elapsed
6. 90 minutes elapsed
7. 2 hours elapsed >> DONE! (has silicon spatula)
8. A dribble of heavy cream was stirred in
9. Served it with fresh okra, tomatoes, fresh corn, onions and a bit o'bacon.

If anyone can figure out how to arrange them so they can be viewed LOGICALLY in a slideshow, have at it.

1 Cup stone-ground grits
4 Cups water
1.5 teaspoons salt

Cook in double boiler --with the bottom of the top section TOUCHING the simmering water--over low heat for 2 hours, stirring once every 30 minutes. Use a timer to remind you to stir.
