I’ve not been around much lately, been busy writing, and seems like there’s never any time with two teenagers at home. School is finally out and I feel like I can breathe.
I’ve been in the mood to cook, and the kids both went to a camp last week so I cooked shrimp and grits since neither of the kids like it. it turned out wonderfully, so I thought I would share the recipe.
I used this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/220895/old-charleston-style-shrimp-and-grits/
The difference is that I used 3/4 pound of shrimp, I omitted the bacon completely, and sauteed the veggies in olive oil instead. As you can see, we still had plenty of shrimp. The grits were very very creamy and didn’t set up hard like usual. I think the half and half helped with that. I used yellow stone ground grits. Yes, that’s butter and cheese swimming on top, just swimmingly.
