They Can't All Be Good....

Some nights I'm just not into it. I had to work yesterday and I really didn't have anything in mind for dinner. Usually, these are the kind of nights that we would order in or go out to eat. We didn't because Jason is still not feeling well, so I checked out the pantry and threw this mess together.

That odd looking piece of red meat is barbecue chicken on top of pepper jack cheese grits (we love grits as a side dish). The pile of stuff next to that is a zucchini casserole that I had been wanting to try for a few weeks now. It wound up tasting like something you would have at a church potluck - not great.

I will share my recipe for grits because they are so fast and so, so easy!!!

Pepper Jack Cheese Grits:
3 cups water
3/4 cup quick cooking grits
4 ounces Pepper Jack Cheese
2 Tablespoons of butter

1. Boil the water and add salt
2. Slowly stir in the grits and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly
3. Add the butter and cheese

You could really use any kind of cheese and these would turn out wonderful. Sometimes I will chop up green onions into the grits right before I serve them.
