My niece Krista loves this salad and since she has good taste I asked my sister to send me the recipe which is right up my alley – it is simple and only has a few ingredients. My son Adam and several of his friends devoured it.

So without further ado:

Krista’s Macaroni salad

4 cups uncooked macaroni (I used spiral)

1 cup mayo

1/4 white vinegar

2 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 tablespoons yellow mustard

S & P to taste

Cook macaroni, add onion, celery, grated carrot and red pepper. Mix together mayo, vinegar, sugar, mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salad ingredients and voila, Krista’s fav macaroni salad.

I love this recipe because you can add what you want–I just used red pepper, onion and radishes as I had no celery and was too lazy to grate carrots!

Bliss is a simple but good recipe. What do you think?

Rabbit, Rabbit…..

June 1st. A fresh start. A new month. Rabbit, rabbit.

I am not sure why I say rabbit, rabbit other than the fact that Robin Roberts from Good Morning America starts out each new month saying this, and hey, if it works for Robin—it is good enough for me.  She confessed once that she does not know why she says it. So maybe I will Google it—have a sip of coffee or favourite libation (depending on the time of day—remember it is 5 o’clock somewhere) and I will be back…

Okay, I am back and here is what I found out in a nutshell: according to that source I promised I would never rely on, Wikipedia, “Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” is “a variant of a common British superstition which states that a person should say or repeat the word “rabbit” or “rabbits”, or say the phrase “white rabbits” or “white rabbits, white rabbits, white rabbits” or some combination of these elements out loud upon waking (or the first moment) on the first day of the month” ensuring good luck for the duration of the month.

Wikipedia also suggested that the superstition may be a survival of the ancient belief in swearing as a means of avoiding evil.

I am going to stick to “rabbit, rabbit”—and if it makes me avoid evil and ensures good luck, all the better.

Do you have a superstition that gives you bliss?
