½ lemon
1 t hot sauce
1 stalk green onion
½ c beer
2 servings of grits
½ c shredded cheddar cheese

            Follow the directions of your grits, since time and ratio seem to vary. Meanwhile, clean up shrimp, leaving tails attached. Slice up onions, mushrooms and garlic.
            Heat up a saucepan, when hot, add the bacon. When the bacon is crispy, remove onto paper towels to dry. Place the pan back on heat, add the shrimp, garlic and mushrooms, and allow to cook. After shrimp is cooked, turn down heat and add the beer. Simmer for five minutes.
            When grits are finished, add the butter, cream and cheese. Stir until all is mixed and melted. Remove from heat. Remove the shrimp from heat, squeeze lemon on top, add green onions and hot sauce. Place grits in a bowl, place shrimp on top and enjoy. Go Falcons!
