Shrimp & Grits!

shrimpgrits
Bacon, eggs, & grits is a breakfast staple in our house, but every now and then we like to switch it up and do shrimp and grits for dinner.

This particularly batch was inspired by Rodney Smith of Watch it Played. I showed Lisa a photo of Rodney with Mary of Rolling Dice & Taking Names where he was trying grits for the first time. Lisa & I were very disappointed that there was no shrimp on his grits. So this photo is dedicated to you Rodney!

Thai Beef Salad!

Houston has a few really nice Asian markets and as a result we’ve been doing a lot of asian food. Last weekend we made a Thai Beef Salad. It had a tangy spicy sauce that worked really well with the beef and other ingredients. The oddest thing about it though had to be the fresh ground mint leaves. I’ve rarely use mint but in this case it turned out super tasty.

Sushi!

I thought sushi was one of those things that was fairly consistent. Then we moved to Texas. Sushi is pretty darn hit or miss down here. We’ve only found a handful of places that does a good job with it. Because of that I signed Lisa and myself up for a sushi class. Since we took it we’ve started to get pretty good at making homemade sushi plus it’s better than anywhere else we can get it around here.

Included in the book are a bunch of recipes but of coursre the star of them all is Italian Meatballs, because let’s be honest you can’t have National Cthulhu Eats Spaghetti Day without spaghetti and meatballs.
