|My sea shell macaroni salad|
Most of my day has been spent in the kitchen. I made over 100 cupcakes and an 8" layer cake for the cupcake wedding cake for tomorrow (some cupcakes stay here for the party) - I'll set that up on location tomorrow, and then head to Albany Airport around noon to greet Meghan. Katie, Henry, and Pete will be with me as we welcome Meghan home. It's been such a long time, and we're all excited. Pete finally gets to meet his auntie!

Here's the recipe for the massive macaroni salad I made for tomorrow's party:
SEA SHELL MACARONI SALAD
2 lbs. medium sea shell pasta, cooked al dente and drained
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 cans solid white tuna, drained and flaked
4 ribs celery, diced
1/2 vidalia onion, diced
10 green olives with pimento, chopped
2 tablespoons olive juice
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups mayonnaise
In very large bowl, mix together chopped eggs, tuna, celery, onion, olives, olive juice, salt and pepper, and mayonnaise. To that, stir in mayonnaise and combine well. Stir in drained pasta, and mix it all up very well. Chill. If it needs more mayo, add a little mayo and a splash of milk. Let it sit in the fridge overnight (if you have time) to let the flavors blossom.
