I talk about food a lot. And other stuff.

But mostly food.

Shrimp and Grits

I watched Throwdown with Bobby Flay the other night at my in-laws' house.  The challenge was Shrimp and Grits.  I got me a hankerin' for some.  I made them the second day we were back home.  Oh, shrimp and grits, how  I love you.  Grits are so comforting, yet you can eat them all year round, and the possibilities of flavor to go on these simple ingredients are endless.  Just look at this book! (Photos and food styling by close family friends Chris and Kathleen Rogers.)

I made EatingWell's recipe and served it with steamed broccoli, which were especially delicious dipped in cheesy grits!  

This is a SUPER easy, quick recipe with only a few ingredients, but the great flavors that come out are impressive enough for company. The kids loved the grits and ate the leftover chicken I served with their portion of grits and broccoli.  We can give them a few years to like shrimp, I guess.


  1. I've been wanting to make these for a loooong time. Going on my to-do list!

  2. Looks/sounds YUM! My mom hates grits though, so I won't be making those anytime soon. Maybe for myself sometime.

  3. Ms. V. . . You are the BEST! I made this tonight and I am so so sooo happy and thrilled! I grew up in Georgia- I miss my Grits- this was fabulous- I had to lie and tell my kids it was "cheesy rice" but they loved it~ Thanks ever so much! <3
