Shrimp and Grits, and King Cake Jelly Shots

Oh, hi!

I’m just letting the good times roll over here.

Letting. Them. Roll. And maaaan are they rolling. I can’t even begin to describe all of the rolling of the good times that are rolling right now.

Talk about rolling. Those good times? They roll.

Am I annoying you yet because I’m about to ground myself for life.

Speaking of rolling though: I did play the clarinet in the junior high band! . . .I definitely did not roll, did I?

I’m pretty sure the only rolling I’ll get to today will be on an old, stained yoga mat. And then head first into this bowl of mother-loving GRITS.

This was actually my first time making shrimp and grits, and I’ll have you know that my good times rolled SO HARD. You can read about my adventure, RIGHT HERE.

But if that’s not enough to get your bon temps roulering, my money is on these ridiculous King Cake Jelly shots. Are you wondering if there is a little plastic baby in one of them? I’ll guess you’ll have to clicky clicky right HERE to unfold that mystery.

Look at us with our good times that are rolling!

p.s. Did anyone else notice how the ENTIRE set of How I Met Your Mother was purple, green and yellow last night? I’m still pulling for Robin and Ted, FTW.

    I've never had shrimp and grits before - - but I clearly need to change that and FAST!! It looks so delicious ... I think I could somehow convince myself that it would be okay to eat this for breakfast (... mmm maybe) and lol since i'm having that for breakfast, I might as well move onto the shots for lunch ;)

    LOVE those jelly shots -- I'm so lightweight that i probably would have 1 and be passed out. but! if i had those shrimp and grits prior to that, I can probably have your entire tray of jelly shots :)

    Shrimp and grits look great! I want to dig in with a fork so bad and it's not even 7 am yet. Those jelly shots... I've never had jelly shots but I want those to be my first.

    I did not notice that, but now I want to rewatch the episode. Sad to say that Robin and Ted can't end up together. I'm pulling for her and Barney. And King Cake Jelly Shots? Oh my word yes.

    Girl, you're twistin' and rollin' with that S&G recipe! My daughter, who lives on Sullivan's Island in SC would have your neck for messin' with Low Country tradition though! Don't tell her, but I'm totally tryin' your version :D
    • Bev Weidner February 21, 2012 at 6:55 pm #
      What is Low Country!? You're the second person to bring that up, and I can't believe I don't even know what that means! HA!

    Mmm I want to smear my body with grits. In celebration of fat tuesday and every day.

    The grits and the shots both look amazing. And....I love How I Met Your Mother, too. I think that I am a little obsessed because I am trying to determine all of the ways that it is possible that Robin and Ted end up together. :)

    I'm wondering why all those jello shots I took in college NEVER looked half as gorgeous as these!?! And by "in college", I meant "this past wknd". DOH!

    Haven't been able to get your Shrimp & Grits outta my head since I saw that photo, so I put it on my menu for this weekend. Can't wait to try them, Bev. They look absolutely amazing!

    Heck yes!!! Those shots are just too cute! I've actually never had the shrimp and grits combo, and this looks like the perfect introduction to those rich and tantalizing flavors!

    I need that shrimp and grits in my life!!

    What an outstanding southern spread! Nothing better than a flash of New Orleans and Mississippi river style recipes. Reminds me of St. Louis Mardi Gras celebration. If I make a meal like this, there's no doubt everyone will leave me with a clean house ;)
