Quick and Good

Book club tonight and no let up from work. I checked my bookmarks and found a recipe for Beef Short Ribs in Chipotle and Green Chile Sauce and another one for cheese grits. That sounded easy (though elapsed time wasn't short). So, last night I put everything to stew, pretty much following the recipe exactly. Tonight I made my own cheese grits recipe based on a combination of a couple of different ones.

Cheese Grits
Serves 8

2 cups yellow grits (not quick)
8 cups water
6 oz grated cheddar cheese
white pepper
  1. Put water in pot, whisk in grits. Heat to boil, stirring regularly - I think it was about 10 minutes.
  2. Dump in cheese while whisking.
  3. Add salt and pepper to taste

The grits taste delicious and were really as easy as they sound - not sure why I've always been intimidated by grits.
