Meal No. 2272: Shrimp and Goat Cheese Grits with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

Last Friday night, as the cold rains of the day finally began to wrap up their nasty work, I served up the Tupelo Honey Cafe's take on shrimp and grits for supper for the three of us. I made my usual spot-on creamy Southern grits but then added in goat cheese and crushed basil. Atop it goes the Creole-spiced shrimp that's swimming in a shallow roasted red pepper sauce. It's kind of a simple meal to throw together but it packs a punch of flavor that delights the taste buds.
