The Opinionated Foodie: The Love (or Not) of Food and Everything That Goes with It

Hugs and Casseroles

“I am not going to like it, but I will eat it.” -Mr. Opinionated right before supper.

The weather is turning. Saturday is the first day of fall. I love it. Rain has fallen all day, and the temps are cool.

This kind of weather makes me want to devour anything warm and creamy and cheesy and gooey.

So, I made Trisha Yearwood’s wild rice and chicken casserole.

The only thing is that I only had one box of wild rice, and the recipe calls for two. I was supposed to half the whole recipe, but at times I forgot and I added the ingredients as the recipe said. So, it was about half right with lots of extra parts.For example, I added two jars of mushrooms, and I made all the sauce. Devine.

Still, this chicken recipe that my husband was not at all excited about made me one happy gal, even if it wasn’t the way Trisha intended.

This dish was so perfect for this bleh day that I wanted to hug Mr. Opinionated and celebrate the moment. He thought I was crazy.

Maybe I am.

I for sure would have hugged Trisha if she had been in my kitchen. I think she and I would get along splendidly.
