Friday Fiction: Pepper

Write a brief bit of fiction using the prompt "Pepper."

Eldridge put pepper, salt and butter on his grits, not sugar and milk.  “Damn Yankees” used sugar, sissifying grits into something akin to rice pudding.  Eldridge’s grits stood up proud like Bald Mountain with a buttery lava core and flecked like a coon hound in zesty black pepper.  On Saturdays, he would arise as usual at dawn, but added to the sunny-side up eggs sizzled in sausage grease, grits and Jimmy Dean’s a  toast, splashing vodka into his morning orange juice from his stash under the front seat of the silver blue, ’62 Chevy Impala.

I have enjoyed the One-Minute Writer and C. Beth's steady supply of prompts.  This weekly win prompted me to get my blog going.  Thank you, C. Beth!
