Yummmmalicious! Absolutely rich and delicious, this Shrimp and Grits recipe is right up there with many of the great restaurants in the Lowcountry!
I’ve been making this recipe for years. Shrimp and grits is a family favorite, especially when it’s cold outside, and now is the perfect time.. since it even snowed in Florida and their talking about a Bomb cyclone slamming East Coast.
There are water main breaks all around us for days now. But the most ironic story comes from one of the women that works at the water company’s call center.
While calling to see if anyone is scheduled to check on the water main break across the street from our house, the people that work at the water company had to move to a different location. Why? Because their water main broke, and the water came up through the floor at their office, flooding the water company. Oh the irony was NOT lost on me. We’re not even in the coldest part of the country, we’re in St. Louis, smack dab in the center. So how everyone up north deals with this craziness, I don’t even know.
So if your somewhere shivering, I wish I could bring you this warm and Yummmmazing Shrimp and Grits to warm your bones. But if you can get a store be sure to pick up everything you need to make this, you won’t be sorry. Don’t be intimidated with all the steps. Just do all the prep work first, then tackle the recipe. It is really easy and you can thank me later.
::Update:: So the water company finally made it out, if that’s what you want to call it. The water main across the street is no longer leaking. They shut it off (along with the water to my house), marked the ground, and left. This does not bode well…as there are numerous people who have been without water for over a week now. So fingers crossed.
