For our blogger parties, Chris (Nibble Me This) and I have provided lodging for some of the guests who need to spend the night or leave the event too early to drive home and, as last year, the Klett’s and two Hoffer families bunked with us. A month ago, Penny Klett posted on her Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen blog her husband David’s recipe for shrimp and grits and after I commented how good they looked, Penny offered to make them for breakfast while they were here. I hurt my fingers typing the positive reply so quickly.
The others may post about this meal as well, but I wanted to do one so I could brag about their food.
Sam (My Carolina Kitchen) brought a very nice bowl of mixed fruit and Penny also brought scones, chocolate biscotti, and another delicious little pastry.
Soon, there was a pan full each of cheesy grits and shrimp in gravy.
I had jokingly said I might have to top my shrimp and grits with a fried egg and Stu and David quickly decided they’d try one as well – as always, everything’s better with an egg.
What a treat is was for Bev and I to again turn the kitchen over to friends, sit back, and watch them work their magic – then get to enjoy the delicious meal with them. The Hoffer brothers did the same thing for dinner the previous year and I'm beginning to think we may should do this once a month.
