Girlie Movie Night

In honor of Heath Ledger's recent death, Kristina, Suzanna, and I had Girlie Movie Night and watched A Knight's Tale. It was the perfect mixture of Middle Ages, Boy Meets Girl, and current pop culture.
Here's the best part... We made Grits and Biscuits. Chris would call that "girlie" dinner too. These Grits were so yummy and easy.
Flying Biscuit Café: Creamy Dreamy White Cheddar Grits

6 cups water
2 cups half and half
3 tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp white pepper
2 cups quick grits
1 cup grated white cheddar
4 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed

Combine water, half and half, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Slowly pour grits into boiling water whisking the entire time. Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk often until thick and completely smooth, about ten min.
Add cheese and stir gently until cheese melts. Whisk again to combine. Turn heat off and allow grits to stand five minutes. Add butter and stir until completely smooth.
And here is the easiest biscuit recipe in the world. These are a dinner staple at our house:
Mix 2 cups of bisquick with 1 stick of melted butter and 8oz of sour cream. Divide into 12 muffin tins and bake at 350 for 12 minutes. They melt in your mouth. I LOVE them with honey. No extra butter necessary...
So round up your girlfriends and pay tribute to girlie movies and grits!!!

I love this idea. I am sitting here with my GRITS (Girls Raised in the South) T-shirt on. One of my girlfriends from GA gave it to me and I have lots of girlfriends that would love a Grits/movie night. Fun idea!!
