Christmas Eve Dinner by Kathryn Geitner

Mama Bird's Cupcake & Cake InfoThis recipe for Shrimp & Grits is so yummy that I only make it 2 times a year, I fear if I made it any more than that it would lose some of its special"ness". So, every year since Hubs and I have been together I make this on Christmas Eve and I make it at the beach. I make Louis Osteen's BBQ Shrimp from…
