Sausage and Parmesan Cheese Grits

Sausage and Peppers With Parmesan Cheese Grits Recipe
Picture from "My Recipes."

I found Italian sausage on sale a few weeks ago while at the grocery store.

My boy cherub really likes Italian sausage.

He really likes the Italian sausage and peppers that I make.

But I wasn't in the mood for that the other day.

I was in the mood for grits.

Which is weird.

I don't really ever crave grits.

But I was that day.

And since I was the one cooking, I gave in to my wants.

That's the beautiful thing about "owning" the kitchen!

So I thought, "Self!  Italian sausage and grits would probably taste really good together!"

And since I'm smart enough to think of it, I was rather certain that someone else had already thought of it too!

That started my google search!

And sure enough!  Someone had already figured it out for me!

I love that!

I found a recipe that sounded great and I made it for dinner and the whole family liked it.

It was also great reheated for leftovers.

And I'm NOT a leftover girl.

I pawn those off to the cherubs for their lunch, remember?

But for this recipe, I was the one having it for lunch the next day!
