Cajun Shrimp and Sausage with Cauli-Grits

Soooo… that was the longest break ever!  But, after numerous delays and setbacks, if feels good to be back at the keyboard and writing again!  Due to a busier personal schedule (oldest son is graduating, medical issues with my younger son, and working on my book), the blog is going to shift to a focus on recipes, and probably only one a week for the time being.  I’m also going...

Not a huge deal, because I got to make it twice more!  Once for Thanksgiving,...

I’ve made this dish so often now I could probably make it in my sleep.  For one, we absolutely LOVE this dish.  I almost labeled it as my Sausage and Sage Butternut Breakfast Casserole, but we have yet to eat it for breakfast!  The savory-sweet combination is perfect for any meal, and we’ve eaten it for dinner several times now.
