Lemony Shrimp and Grits

This post has been on the list for a long time coming. I liked it, but I think I have decided that I have a texture thing with grits. Kinda like I have a texture think with oatmeal. The first few bites are great, then I can't stand to eat anymore. If you like grits you should try it!
PS: I know you have noticed some of the edits I have been making to my blog. Hopefully I can continue to make improvements. I posted a new page above that is called "This Week's Menu" you should check it out.
