Believe it or not,  we are still putting away Christmas decor.  I am going on line to find a large storage bag to fit my flocked tree to take to the garage and not be hurt by moisture.   This thing is more work than it's worth I believe.
Meantime we had a taste for some shrimp and grits.

I cooked my grits in whole milk with olive oil and lil salt.
stirred in a little butter when they finished cooking.

The shrimp I had were ones that were already previously frozen from Martins.
After thawing I pressed in a paper towel to dry and then sprinkled little lemon them.
Sauteed yellow and green peppers with fresh mushrooms and garlic then I added dried chives from my garden (didn't have fresh scallions) along with some of the bacon,    I had bacon already cooked in the microwave nice and crispy, with a few slices reserved for the top before serving.
 Squeezed on a fresh lemon and added the shrimp.   Just heated through and of course I had to throw another pat of butter on this good steamy stuff before piling on top of the grits.
Just a fast throw together before a much later dinner.
will hold us over til dinner

My daughter sent me a picture of her dinner the other night and this is Steves favorite in which she will make him when he visits again.  Yummm
