Can you believe that I have lived in the south for over three years and never had grits until last night? They never appealed to me because they look like cream of wheat (yuck). Since I do love shrimp I figured shrimp and grits, a southern favorite, would be a great introduction for me. Rhonda McCanless shared this recipe on facebook a few weeks ago. Her family loved it and I can see why, it is fantastic! I didn't stray too far from the recipe. I added a little less mushrooms (Jeff isn't a fan of them cooked) and probably more green onion. The time frame of cooking was right on... the shrimp was done to perfection. I had all the ingredients chopped, measured and ready to dump in at just the right time. The sauce and grits melded together beautifully. I savored every bite.

Seagrove potter neighbors, Meredith Heywood and Tom Gray both filled me on FB about the deliciousness of yellow grits. Tom even told me about a mill, not far from here, where you can have them ground to your liking. I think it's time for a field trip.
Y'all have a happy Monday!
