This is one particular of my favourite comfort foodstuff! I honestly believe I could eat this every day. This dish was some thing our family would have often. My Granddad Benny would just take me crabbing in the early morning hours and sometimes shrimp would get caught in the nets. I would let them go until eventually Benny would fuss about me throwing foodstuff again, ha! I imply, we have been likely crabbing, not shrimping! But, when he cooked up that 1st dish of shrimp and grits…OMG. I don’t know if I completed having it, or fell asleep in my bowl.
After that, shrimp and grits was a single of these comfort and ease foods we constantly had expanding up. I keep in mind feeding on it where ever I did not come to feel effectively. When I was all around 7 or 8 decades previous and obtained measles and mumps and I try to remember this dish staying one particular of the only items I could keep down. My mom would cut the shrimp up modest for me to eat. It’s so great, right up there with collard greens and cornbread.
But, my initially time cooking shrimp and grits with cannabis was about twelve decades in the past. My sister and I were being discussing the household recipes from our Granddad Benny, and we couldn’t determine out why some recipes just didn’t style right. Following asking my mother, we figured out that we didn’t have the “special” component that improved the flavors. Cannabis can do so a lot for your foods, for both equally style and wellness!
