basil

Hey good lookin' whatcha got cookin'

11:41:00 AM

Today is a gorgeous spring day! The girls and I are rockin' the white skirts I am wearing a tank top and they are wearing matching Hello Kitty shirts! Noah is sportin' some shorts and flip flops and its a hip hop happy day for sure! We have big plans of planting outside and some organizing of the garage, but in the meantime I thought I would share my secret Macaroni Salad recipe!


(No I don't add in basil but I am so thrilled to see our basil seeds sprouting! I found this tin in the $1 spot at Target and it's even better than I could have imagined! The basil is now large and fresh smelling and graces the center of our dinner table!)

It won't be so secret anymore! It took me a LONG time to master this one so I hope you all like it as much as we do!!



Dressing:

3/4 cup Buttermilk
3/4 cup Mayo (I am a snob and ONLY use Best Foods or for you East Coasters Hellman's!)
1 Tbsp Mustard
1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
salt & pepper to taste

Mix together in medium sized lidded bowl and set aside.

Meanwhile, cook 1 3/4 cup of uncooked macaroni (this makes 3 cups in the end) as it says on the package. While your noodles are cooking, dice up 2 celery sticks and dump into dressing. Dice 1/3 of a cup onion (I usually use yellow as that is what I always have on hand!) and the key ingredient 1/2 cup of bread and butter pickles diced *YUM*!!

Combine all ingredients in your dressing bowl and chill 1hour. Serve and eat to your hearts desire!

I make this recipe and put in small bowls for my husband to take in his lunch or I make it for BBQ's and potlucks! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

This is my sweet Emily Grace as I was cooking my macaroni salad:


and this is the picture she made me (if you couldn't figure it out it is ME wearing my wedding dress!)
