This isn't my first rodeo.我以前去过这条虾和沙砾路……我带你去了。My last encounter with a warm dish of creamy grits and spicy shrimp was served to a gentleman whose only remark was that I had failed to remove the tails from the shrimp before serving them to him.Really,伙计？Really!?So ended that short relationship (not really… but sort of… FOR REAL).
I needed a redo.Not for flavor's sake,只是为了我自己……因为我完全想要一大碗这种疯狂。
ps.我实际上没有三十七条约会规则。I do,however,have two giant bowls of lunch.Who's counting (I am).
乔纳森做了一杯邦克斯鸡尾酒，配上虾+沙粒……ACucumber Blonde Bloody Mary.它的泡沫和清新。It's takes the tomato thickness out of the traditional Bloody Mary and makes this cocktail truly gulp-able.In addition to being an awesome bringer-of-cocktails-to-my-house,乔纳森也是一位了不起的摄影师，baker… and he's obsessed with my cat.All the things I look for in a friend.
Please don't call the diet police.
Grits are cooked up with a hearty handful of sharp cheddar cheese and a big pat of butter.Salt and too coarsely ground black pepper make nice additions.
在煮虾之前，我用一点大蒜炒了意大利辣香肠。The sausage adds another level of flavor and spice with a saltiness that speaks to my heart.
This is my comfort.I'd like a pillow made out of Shrimp + Grits.
不…等等。那是不可能的。Instead I'd like a pillow made out of Chocolate Chip Challah,with a side of Shrimp + Grits.
虾+粗粒是玉米粥带来的最高水平。温暖舒适，真的……确保你只为你的某个人把虾尾去掉真的？爱。It's worth waiting for.
Spicy shrimp + Cold Beer Bloody Mary… such a major win!
4 cups water
1 cup stone ground grits (also known as polenta)
salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese,切碎的
1/2 pound spicy Italian sausage (I used two uncooked links)
1 large garlic clove,minced
1 pound shrimp,剥皮、脱皮、无尾
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
把水烧开。Add grits to the boiling water while whisking to prevent clumps.Add a bit of salt and pepper.Lower heat,bring to simmer and cover until water is absorbed.Follow the directions on your box of grits or polenta.Cooking times vary,我的粗粉大约15分钟就煮好了。一旦厚了，从火中取出，加入黄油和奶酪丝。
In a medium skillet over medium heat,把香肠煮熟。把肉从盒子里拿出来（如果是在一个盒子里的话），在烹饪时用勺子把肉切成小块。Once the meat is cooked through,加入大蒜再煮一分钟。Add shrimp and cook until shrimp turn pink.加柠檬汁，scallions,and parsley.Cook for another three minutes.
