A Very Special Meal

Today I would like to share with you a very special meal.

This meal was made and shared by my husband and I on our (recent) 1 year anniversary trip in a cabin in Ponca, Arkansas.

This meal was also one of three entrees served and enjoyed very much (so I heard) at our wedding on April 14, 2012.

What meal could be this special and delicious?

Why, shrimp and grits of course!

This mix of textures and flavors and Southern flair is fantastic for a special occasion and special memories. And it really is pretty simple to make.

First, you need to start with some special grits.

My mom brought me these fantastic grits a few months ago and they are perfect for this dish.

After cooking the grits and sauteing the shrimp in garlic and butter, you add some cheese and a little half and half to the grits and you have a match made in heaven (just like me and my husband, if you'll let me add a little more cheese to the mix).

Make this dish for your loved one and I bet that they will feel special, too.
