There was lots of yummy food for my daughter's '12' th B-day party. There was 5 packs of hotdogs grilled. All was ate. A large crockpot full of sloppy joes gone. Watermelon, canalope, birthday cake, macaroni salad, potato salad and much more. To much to even remember.
Tell me doesn't these pictures make your mouth water?
They sure do mine.
I had many request for the recipe for the macaroni salad. Like most things I cook I can't give exact measurements. As I can do it by eye but not really explain. Like a pinch of this or a dash of that. I learn to cook that way from my angel Grandmother Rhodes.
Sandy's Homemade Macaroni Salad

4 sweet pickles (diced)
8 oz. block of cheddar cheese (small cubed)
(You can use whatever kind you like for this)
Macaroni cooked - follow directions on box
Miracle Whip - to taste
Mustard - to taste
Salt - to taste
pepper - taste
Mix all together. Completely before serving.
We also had sliced watermelon....Yummy! I wish I had some now.
Of course we can't forget the birthday cake. Well, it was really cupcakes made in to a cake. Ordered from Kroger's with whip frosting. I love it because it doesn't have as much sugar.
