Start it off right ~2010

The way you spend your day is the way you'll spend your year.
Let's start it off right!

What do you the morning after a great New Years Eve party? I had some left over Rotel cheese dip with spicy sausage. We didn't finish the grilled shrimp either. There was a half a bottle of prosecco~ in spite of our best efforts.

How 'bout a breakfast of spicy grits casserole and shrimp.
Spicy Grits Casserole
3 cups water
1 cup quick grits
1 cup spicy Rotel dip (you know Rotel & Velveeta with sausage)
2 Tbs butter
3 eggs
Bring the water to a boil and stir in grits. Cover and lower heat, cook until smooth. Add Rotel cheese dip and butter, stir well. Remove from heat and briskly whip in eggs. Pour into a buttered 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 400° for 30 minutes.
Serve with warmed leftover shrimp and a mimosa.
The black eyed peas and greens are on the stove for later in the day. We will have our luck and our wealth for the rest of the year.

Now that's the way to spend the day... and maybe the year.

Happy & Blessed New Year y'all,
