Yikes. Turns out, after a bit of research, what I thought was a fox we saw twice on our walk yesterday, was most definitely a coyote. The good news is, I’m sure that is what Mr. Suburban thought was a wolf, too! Needless to say, I did not venture outside for any form of exercise today!
In fact, there was no exercise today at all. Unless chasing the granddaughters around and making 100 trips to the basement for laundry counts??
I did, however, manage to whip up a tasty chicken-broccoli-quinoa casserole for dinner!
2 cups cooked, diced chicken (I cheated and used a rotisserie chicken I picked up yesterday! Yes, the whole thing, skinned and boned, of course)
1 cup uncooked quinoa (then prepared according to package directions)
2 cups shredded cheese (I used a Colby, Monterey Jack combo, but Cheddar would work just fine)
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 TBS milk
1 to 2 cups steamed broccoli (again, I cheated, and used 1 bag of Birdseye steamers broccoli cuts. Prepared as directed on package)
Optional grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine all ingredients in large bowl,
Spray 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray, spoon casserole mixture into prepared dish, optional sprinkle top with a few TBS grated Parmesan cheese, bake about 30-40 min until golden and bubbly
This was my first go round with quinoa, and I loved it!
Benny is in a food coma from all the goldfish crackers, cereal, marshmallows, etc….he loves when the granddaughters sleep over!
The rest of my evening will consist of (in no particular order):
- Finishing laundry (does it ever end??)
- A glass (or two) of Lambrusco
- Season premier of Shameless!!
Tomorrow will begin with this…..ugh.

Casseroles, love them or hate them?
Jillian Michaels, love her or hate her? (For me, it’s love/hate!)
