Spicy Grits Bowls

     "I like my grits gritty."  I don't really know why but I growled this at SA yesterday before preparing this new delightful dish to add to my repertoire, but it started an epiphany. 
     Do you ever just look in your fridge and feel slightly uninspired by the ingredients you have before making a trip to the grocery store? I do it ALL the time, and I am the queen of the last minute call to pick up ingredients on the way home. I am however, trying to turn over a new leaf and use my pantry so this recipe is a result of trying to be both frugal and use ingredients I had on hand (and almost always have on hand.)

Spicy Grit Bowls
Two servings of grits prepared
2 cups of black beans
1/2 pound of spicy sausage cooked and crumbled
1/4 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/4 c. green salsa
1 avocado chopped
sour cream
cilantro to taste
      So basically layer the the toppings on top of the prepared grits and then mix them up if you want  to or not :) Delicious and feeds two.

I have recently discovered that I really like grits. This sounds wonderful any time of day.

I've heard of grits, but I don't think I've ever tried them before. Are they potatoes or some kind of grain? I am clearly clueless. Whatever it is, it looks good. I need to do better with my pantry too. Bah!
