What I Like About You

Shrimp Over Corn Meal Masa
Similar to Shrimp and Grits, I like the taste of Corn Meal Masa with my Shrimp.  It is heartier and easily modified to fit a cheesy, saucy or garlicky theme.  You can do silky smooth like a Polenta or grainier, more earthy, as I did here.  I consider corn meal to be more versatile but my sister likes grits, so I've always felt I'm missing a whole world of wonder.  However, my husband has some weird food texture aversion.  He can't eat things that are too smooth.  For example, Cream of Wheat, Oatmeal, Tapioca, and although I only remember trying grits with him once, he'd already proclaimed he hated them.  For whatever reason he accepts corn meal.  Finicky eaters have no place in my world, but I do understand liking what you like.  People have no control in some sense, although I feel I taught myself to love slimy things like eggplant, cactus, even okra although I'd never seek them out.  If someone offered me a potato, egg and cactus breakfast burrito I would kiss them and ask if they had any green hot sauce. 

Bok Choy,Mushrooms, onion and fresh tomatoes went on top as well as bacon!
