How many of you still have hope that your football team will make it to this year’s big game? I hate to be a downer, but my Cardinals just couldn’t make it happen this season. I recently became a football fan after marrying my husband and this year I seemed to finally fully understand the rules of the game (I think?). Ladies out there, please tell me I’m not alone in this? Our family did a fantasy draft before this season and I admit I picked all of my players based on who was the best looking, who had children and who had a clean record. Needless to say, I lost terribly.
Now that the only team I cared about is out, I am looking forward to game day for two reasons; the commercials and the food! Today, I’m going to show you my recipe for a simple and easy pasta salad. The perfect side dish to bring to your gathering this year!

My daughter surprisingly LOVED the olives in the pasta salad. Lindsay Olives are family owned and operated for 4 generations, Lindsay is in the San Francisco Bay area and have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
As the company would say “Established in 1916, we act like a 100-year-old start up with deep roots in tradition and heritage, while continuously looking to grow and adapt. Like a fine wine, we keep getting better with age!”
