Shrimp & cheesy grits!

I don’t cook on Fridays if I can manage not to. It’s my fun day to go out to eat!!! Tonight I will engorge myself with draft beers and specialty pizzas from the Alamo Draft House movie theater with my girl posse with our minions in tow. We will be obnoxious, laugh too loud, sneak drinks and snacks in our purses and stay too long.  I mean, we paid like a gazillion $$ for tickets so we figure we deserve a little looting and pillaging is in order.  Alas… I still have soooo many blog worthy recipes that I need to share, so here’s this gem for ya.  I have not made this in a hot minute! It is one of our favorite meals around here. When the day is long, and the crew is hangry and needs to grub quickly, You can never go wrong with a southern dish like this. You’re probably like, “Oh sure, quick my Aunt Fanny!” I promise its not that hard…or long… lol.  Check it: 30 min tops.
