The Beginnings of a Good Thing

Simple supper-and easy. This took no time at all, and it was really pretty.

Ingredients-one onion, one green pepper, one pound of raw shrimp-shell off, butter, olive oil, grits, chicken stock, marinara

1. In a large skillet, saute the thickly chopped onion and pepper in one heaping tablespoon each of the butter and oil. When softened, add the shrimp and continue to saute until the shrimp are pink.
2. In a stockpot, cook the grits in the stock according to the package directions. I used instant grits, and they were fine. I cooked them for a while, and then I kissed them. That’s right-I kissed my grits.
3. Assemble. I used my cute creme brulee ramekins and layered the grits, the shrimp mixture, and then some store-bought marinara. I used a Kroger brand marinara that is really thin and good.
4. Eat. Kiss the grits again. Yum.
