My Sunday Best, Vol. 37: Pattern Mixing and a Game Day Recipe


This post is sponsored by Lindsay Olives, my absolute favorite olive brand! All opinions are my own :)

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! 

I hear there's a big game coming up in the next few weeks, but I couldn't tell you who's playing... I've fallen off the wagon when it comes to following any professional sports. I *do* notice that Sunday Mass tends to be a little less crowded when that biggest of big games rolls around. In that vein of things, I thought I'd share one of our favorite recipes, in the hopes that it inspires you for a tasty game day menu!

But first, here's what we wore...


Pattern mixing win? Fail? What do you think?

Also Mary Claire with the embroidery hoop hat/halo is obviously super-styling! She had already been to Mass earlier with my mom...



I'm trying to figure out the pre-Mass food situation, since 12:30 falls right at the most peck-ish time of day. We had leftovers aplenty from last night's dinner, so I had the kids help me whip up an early lunch.


One of my favorite easy (and delicious!) snacks to serve is something we call "Taco Nachos." It's so easy the kids can make it by themselves, and you can tailor it to include whatever leftovers you have! I invented this out of desperation one day when I had a whole bunch of taco meat to use up but no tortillas, and it's become a favorite lunch/snack.



Here's what you do:

1. Start by preheating your oven to 350 and lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

2. Choose your ingredients: At least one protein (leftover taco meat, shredded beef, chopped chicken, pulled pork, black beans - whatever you have!), tortilla chips, shredded cheese, and sour cream and olives to garnish.

3. Layer! Spread a layer of chips first, then cover with your protein (we used shredded beef and black beans), top with cheese, and repeat depending on how much you need.






4. Bake! This will depend on how many layers you used - I generally bake for at least 15 minutes, and keep an eye on the oven to make sure the cheese is nice and melted. Chop up a bunch of olives (or enlist the kids to do it!) while it bakes.






5. Serve! Use a spatula to dish up individual portions and top with your garnish (if you haven't eaten all the olives already!). Then once everyone's finished, you're probably going to be scraping all that's left out of the pan because it's so delicious!


Everybody picks off the olives first because we love them over here - Lindsay Olives are my absolute favorite (find a retailer here)!
