Pride and Prejudice and Zombies On A Saturday


This is a fun flick in the spirit of classical Regency era literature with the sensibilities of The Walking Dead. It features Downton Abbey’s Lily James and Doctor Who’s Matt Smith. It’s a very dark comedy that Jane Austen would appreciate.

Buffalo Chicken Casserole

This takes the taste of buffalo chicken and puts it into a savory and slightly spicy casserole. It’s what is for dinner tonight.

The Soup Diva

  • 1 ½ lb boneless skinless chicken, cut into 1” chunks (I use tenders)
  • ¼ cup Franks hot sauce
  • 24 oz bag frozen shredded hash browns, thawed and drained completely
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp ranch dressing mix (or 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp each dill, parsley, garlic powder, and onion powder and a dash of black pepper)
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In large bowl, stir together chicken strips and buffalo sauce. Spoon into baking dish in a single layer. In the same bowl, stir together potatoes, sour cream, dressing mix, and cheese. Spread over chicken. Sprinkle panko evenly over the top. Cover with foil. Bake 25 minutes; uncover and bake 25 minutes longer. Allow to rest 5-10 minutes before serving.

A Note About My Political Posts

It’s no secret I lean left/liberal and I make no apologies for that. One week from today we in the United States will have a new president and that scares the hell out of me. Sometimes you have to speak out about things that deeply concerns you and this is one of those times. You can’t be silent when you see something wrong or threatening. I have too many friends who are scared out of their minds because they are looking at their lives being severely impacted by the desire by some to discriminate and turn back the clock when things were good for them. People on the fringes are in peril. Something has to be done before it’s too late.

If you wish to stop following me I understand. What is happening is too important not to say something to defend the rights of 100% of our population. Too much is at stake. Now is the time to act.

Thank you for your care and the space to express myself. Even when we disagree we can be civil, courteousness.
