Thanksgiving is Over..here comes Christmas!

Thanksgiving is long gone..well, two days.  But at least I don't want to do Holiday Rage when I hear Christmas music or see decorations.

So now, I am looking at more Holiday Recipes! 

This year I tried a new dressing that I had seen on Facebook, originally it was from a Southern Living Magazine. 

Shrimp and Grits Dressing.

Easy to make is a real plus.  Everyone, but me, loved it.  I liked it.  I didn't tinker with the original recipe, just did it "as is."  Very, very unusual for me.  But it was a big hit.  I found it a tad bland.  So the next time I do it, I plan on adding some crumbled bacon and perhaps some jalapenos or just plain green chiles. 

Anyone, since I had found it bland, I decided to take the idea and play with it.

I swapped the shrimp for some diced Andoille sausage, added crumbled bacon, jalapenos, and used a cup of shredded Italian cheese blend.  Also, I used some Cajun seasoning and increased the amount a bit.

The result is my Sausage and Grits Casserole.  I found it much more to my taste. Raphael was voting in favor of the shrimp.

I do think this one is better as a breakfast or brunch casserole, but however you serve it,  Its' good~!
My other big hit was my Roasted Blueberry and Mango Salad.  I have never had one person not love this salad.

And I did some Black Friday shopping via Amazon and got a nice set of Cusinart knives for myself! Wahoooooo
