grits.

I love food. 
I love to eat food. 
look at food. 
take pictures of food. 
feed people food. 

BUT…
 there are just some foods that I have an aversion to due to texture. 
Pudding, jello, and grits, etc. 

Now I am transitioning into my life as a southern girlfriend and daughter. 
Disliking grits is unacceptable. 

So I took the plunge and did what Paula Deen would do "put a little south in my mouth".

attempt #1
Marilyns Place: Shreveport LA
I liked it. The grits were almost like a casserole. The shrimp were swimming in a creole ramolade sauce that was perfection. It was a great way to be introduced to the wide world of grits. 

attempt #2. 
Charleston Crab House; Charleston, South Carolina 
oh my dear sweet baby jesus. I LOVE grits. real, creamy, buttery, cheesy (in this case BBQ-y), southern-y grits. 

Now that I have mastered eating grits I need to master making grits. 

One step closer to being the best southern girlfriend and daughter. 
Sorry hips, thighs and well everywhere else girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.
