Good evening everyone!  Just about a week ago, I posted a grits with quinoa casserole brunch dish.  And of course, this week I made it again, with a little twist.  Thought I would let you know, just in case you thought you were losing it.  I hope that you are feeling brave about trying it out.  What I love about this version, is the crunch on top, along with the smell of the cheese, sunflower seed, and coconut mix in the oven.  Enjoy and be blessed!

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalms 1: 2-3, KJV
