Happy New Year!

Totally changed our plans for tonight...opted to stay home instead of going out...it is freezing cold here and we just feel like being inside and at home tonight!

Making shrimp and grits for dinner...this recipe is from Saveur Magazine...

We are...of course...going through the Good Will drop off today...I have been very good about collecting giveaways but one of us has put off the actual removal of all of this stuff from the basement until now! Actually until this very minute...he is bagging and putting stuff in the car now...I am watching...lol...

We are grabbing some groceries for tonight and tomorrow...lunching out...then home!

It is supposed to get even colder! Tonight is the big mushroom drop in our town but we are not going...the town will be full of people and food trucks and music and fun! But we would rather be at home...cozy and warm!

This is the about to be dropped mushroom...it will be lit and dropped from a crane for the first time ever! Yikes!

Reading this...

Want this...

Have a wonderful day!


  1. You're gonna miss the Mushroom Drop? Those shrimp and grits make me think you're a Southerner at heart. Happy New Year!

    1. Lol...no dropping mushrooms for us! I am...y'all!

  2. Yay on staying in! Shrimp sounds really good.

  3. Wow, I am sure I've heard of the Mushroom Drop...but I hadn't thought of it until you mentioned it. It must be really cold for you to miss it.

    I've never had grits, but the shrimp and grits dish does look very delicious. Happy New Year!

  4. Enjoy your evening in! Happy new year!

  5. Good for you. We did too. It was lovely.

    LOVE that mag btw.
