    christyw2323's Note:

    For my mom's birthday this year I wanted to make something special for her. After searching tons of cookbooks for the "just right" combination of shrimp and grits I have developed this concoction with the help of the Tabasco cookbook and the Best of Bayou Cuisine. Happy Birthday Mom!

      Great dish! I used 2 Tbsp butter (for flavor) and 2 Tbsp olive oil. I sauteed the mushrooms until soft then added all ingredients except the shrimp. I simmered for about 3 minutes, added shrimp and sauteed until the shrimp were pink then added the scallions. It is true about the milk overflowing onto the stove and it does make quite a mess.
