For our honeymoon, Aaron and I took a road trip down the east coast. We stopped in Charleston, SC and had shrimp grits for the first time. OH MAN! It was SOOOO good. Aaron ordered it as appetizer and we liked it so much he got it as an entree too! Since you can’t find shrimp and grits on a menu anywhere in Richmond, VA, Aaron came up with his own recipe and topped it off with BBQ sauce. YUM, YUM, YUM!!!
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain and cool bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble. Reserve bacon drippings in skillet.
Heat a stovetop grill over medium heat and cook shrimp until pink and no longer translucent in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. Place cooked shrimp, green onion, garlic, and crumbled bacon in the bacon drippings left in the skillet. Turn heat to low and keep shrimp mixture warm.
Bring water to a boil in a large saucepan, melt butter in the water, stir in grits, and cook covered for 5 minutes. Turn heat to low. Stir shrimp mixture with bacon drippings into the grits; stir in Cheddar cheese until thoroughly melted and combined. Serve topped with barbeque sauce.

Eating best breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the evil of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and less likely grab a side food out of the street food before break .
Make fruit a at 7.00 clock habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your cereal bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
