Cream of Wheat, however, is amazing.

if your state was part of the war of northern aggression, you're a yankee (yes that includes CA & UT).
if you're from west of minnesota you're a westerner (except for CA & UT).

polenta is grits for italians.

Then there's the crayfish remoulade served on fried green tomatoes. mmmmmmm

Well, according to everything I can find anywhere, this is right.

that's because of the midwesterners not wanting to be associated w/ urban craziness of NYC, Boston, etc. but for anyone from the south all states participating on the yankee side during the war of northern aggression IS a yankee state.
if you want to be truly technically correct, ONLY people from new england (CT, RI, MA, VT, NH & ME) are yankees.

We call them grits (well I call them gross but DH likes them). I don't consider myself a Yankee, but a Midwesterner. Not that I would be bothered to be a Yankee, but I associate that designation more with the northeast. Lol, I have heard Indiana referred to as the "northern most southern state" often though.
