What is it that makes me want to feed people?
I love housefuls of people happily eating.
It's probably from my mother who has so lovingly fed so many over the years.
If someone isn't eating at my house I almost don't know what to do.
Maybe it's a Minnesota thing.
Maybe it's a Northern Minnesota thing.
Maybe it's a Finn thing.
Whatever it is, I enjoy it.
I do have a problem with little luncheon things.
I don't do those because I don't know how.
Guys filling plates with food. I got that down.
Thursday I was preparing to have a houseful over in the evening and chatting on the phone
while I was preparing to cook my pasta for salad.
Renae (who I hadn't talked to in absolutely ages!) said Kevin had asked for my salad recently.
Occasionally I try brew up something else, but I really do love this one ...
enough that I'm sharing it.
1/2 bag coleslaw mix
1 sm box spiral macaroni, cooked
1 green pepper, chopped
1 cucumber, diced
1 bunch green onions, sliced
Bacon bits or imitation crab (I've never used bacon bits because I'm a big fan of crab.)
(Louis Kemp is best, with pcs of crab already cut up)
Dressing (make ahead of time and refrigerate):
1 c mayonnaise
1/4 c sugar
1 T vinegar
Mix all ingredients except dressing. Toss with dressing right before serving.
