It's also a great side dish or appetizer to make to use up leftovers - taco meat, beans, cheese, salsa, shredded lettuce...you get the picture, right?

2 cups of taco meat (beef or chicken)
1 cup refried beans
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup salsa
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced black olives
Layer ingredients in an 8x8 baking dish in the order listed. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until melted. Serve with tortilla chips as a side, or with your favorite Mexican meal.
Well, two more days of work and then off 11 days for Christmas! Lucky me! Although, we will be busy traveling, spending time with both families, squeezing in appointments while I'm off work, and just hanging out!
I'm looking forward to a week one-on-one with the little man, maybe he and I will come up with some new recipes???

Roll out puff pastry and cut into small squares. Drop one piece of beef, along with veggie mixture onto pastry and place another pastry square on top, then seal edges. Place on baking sheet and brush with egg wash mixture.

I have been reading Biz' food blog for many, many months now, and she just keeps drawing me back with her mouth-watering meals. And I guess you could say I'm paying her back, as I won a giveaway of hers earlier this year, and now she has won mine!
Biz, I hope you enjoy this holiday package!
Stayed tuned in the next day or so for recaps of my work holiday gathering we had this weekend. We had SO much food. Isn't that always the case?

Check out my very first post, back on December 6th, 2009. Wow. I've come a long way! At that time I was staying home with the little man who was about 4 months old, and starting up this new little hobby!
I've learned a LOT, cooked a LOT, and made a LOT of wonderful friends. I hope each and everyone one of you still enjoy reading my food posts!
To celebrate I have a surprise Holiday gift package I'm giving away. An adorable little gathering of holiday "baking" items I found at Target last weekend (love that store!).
- A Great Holiday Baking Cookbook
- 3 copper Christmas cookie cutters
- 1 very cute Christmas tree cookie spatula
All in time for your holiday baking!
Simply leave a comment telling me your favorite holiday meal, baked good, drink, etc. And if you don't bake, enter anyway, you have friends don't you? You have until Sunday, December 5th at 12:00pm CST to enter.
So get a crackin'! I can't wait to read all of your responses (don't be afraid to attach recipes, I'd love to try out your favorites!)
