With summer approaching and my daughter bringing a very hungry firefighter home for the weekend, I dusted off some favorite classic recipes and whipped up one of our favorites. Old time macaroni salad.
Finely dice 1 large onion.
Dice several stalks of celery and 3 large carrots.
Squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon.
I used 1 pound of small shells for this recipe. Cook them in salted water until al dente. Add about 1/2 C. mayonnaise (not miracle whip...UGH!). Add 1/3 C. sour cream.
Sprinkle 1 T. cracked black pepper, 1 tsp. salt and 1 T. celery seeds
Add 6 chopped hard boiled eggs. Sorry for the blur! Cooking and taking photos with one hand can be challenging at times! Mix it all around and taste for seasoning. I add a bit of milk to make it creamier. This is best made a day in advance.
It is a great side dish for summer meals.
I will post the other dishes I made in the next couple of days. The very cute firefighter brought me a DC Fire and EMS hoodie! Cool!!!
