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.
