Lemongrass Hand Soap Is Great For Summer Kitchens!
Hey Guys! Here on the Gulf Coast it's shrimp season and we have plenty of them on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. If you are from the South you know that seafood is a way of life on the coast. Most of our weekends are spent outdoors on the water and we LOVE to have friends over and cook the beautiful seafood we catch right in our own backyards! Yes our backyard is the Gulf Of Mexico. For some it's the front! Anyway, I wanted to take a minute to share one of my favorite recipes. Cheesy Shrimp and Grits! You have to eat these at least once in your life.
Don't forget to have our Fresh Lemongrass odor fighting hand soap on hand. Literally. It is the BEST for cutting through cooking smells such as; shrimp, fish, garlic, onions and more. Our fishermen swear by it!
So, Let's get to it!
