Shrimp and Grits

Well, actually it’s Garlic and Herb Shrimp and Polenta with a Pancetta and white wine reduction cream sauce. But, ya know, we’ll keep it simple. I believe God is gonna send me a husband through this dish. Watch! If you’re waiting on a ring or want something special from someone, make this for them! Thank me later. I know, I know, I’ve been on a shrimp kick lately. But, this recipe was requested and who doesn’t love shrimp? Watch me make this manna from heaven!
