Football {food & drink}

I had planned to post weekly party ideas for you football-lovin' peeps out there. Then the Macbook had a tragic accident & it did not work out. BUT, we still have about half of the season left, so here we go!

{A round of lavosh. I keep them on hand in case people show up unannounced!}
One of my favorite party snacks is definitely lavosh. If you haven't heard of it, it's actually Armenian cracker bread that you can toast with toppings or soften to make rolled up sandwiches. It's awesome. Whenever I purchase this, the checkout dude or other customers always ask what in the hell it is.

To start, I spray the surface of the lavosh w. PAM olive oil spray.
You could use whatever, or even real oil, too.
My favorite is Thai.
  • First sprinkle shredded Havarti over the surface, followed by chopped green onion & diced chicken breast (already roasted, of course).
  • Place in 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. Just keep on eye on it (cheese will bubble & edges turn brown...we've all cooked pizza, right?).
  • Remove & immediately top with chopped tomatoes & cilantro.
  • Drizzle your favorite peanut sauce over the top, break into chunks & enjoy!
{obviously you could use a huge variety of toppings, get creative!}

As for cocktails, this was inspired by Miss Candace Rose, one of my favorite bloggers.
Beer Margaritas!

One cup white tequila...
one frozen limeade tube...
4 beers {I used High Life, obviously}.

Mix together, chill & enjoy! These are seriously unreal.
SO GOOD.
I drank about 2 pitchers too many.

Now go...eat, drink, & be merry!

These look pretty delish. We buy all sorts of mediterranean breads, but I'll be on the look out for Lavosh.
