Shrimp and grits

Hello beautiful people!  Hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready to start experimenting in the kitchen.  If that doesn’t sound enticing,  at least try a simple dish and make it your own.

This week I did just that with my Sexy Shrimp and Grits!

As you all know I only feel as though I accomplished something major if my picky eater (oldest son) and husband approve.  Guess what… they did just that,  YAY!  Notice I left my youngest out of the equation because he eats just about everything in site.  Literally!

So this weekend if you don’t feel like doing either of my suggestions, at least try making this wonder dish and have someone you can trust try out your results.  Oh yeah,  make sure you don’t forget the Sexy!

    I’ve never cooked with grits but they look like they would make a good base.
