"Hawaiian" style mac salad

Maggie Mae

This is NOT your grandmothers macaroni salad, and I am not Hawaiian. This is more of a knockoff of the West Coast chain restaurant - L&L. Found in food courts, this recipe is far from healthy. 

Salt your water. This is the only time you get to season your pasta. So dump some kosher salt in the water. Alton Brown I believe once said it should taste like mermaid tears. I use a fair amount and find it difficult to add too much.

Boil the water and cook the noodles. I use elbow noodles, but I also live in a far off place and often Safeway is out. So unless I'm in the mood to head down the road and find out that Freddie's is out too, I will substitute mini penne or something else similar in size. Noodles should be Al dente. I don't have times for you. Taste your noodles or follow the directions on the box.

Drain the noodles. Rinse with cold water to stop them from cooking. I do a quick rinse and then add them to the mayo while still warm. This is a personal preference. If your noodles are still warm, they will absorb the mayo. If they are chilled, they get the silky dressing that other people prefer. Good cooking is about knowing your own tastes. 20180612_190226.thumb.jpg.b112632a0cdb5356eb548015993b5200.jpg

 

Add them to the chopped onion, green onion, and 🥕. I usually do my veggie prep first. So hopefully you followed the one rule of cooking and read the entire recipe before starting. 

I usually use about 1 cup of mayo to 1/2 a pound of dry noodles (half a box).

I think it goes well with a shot of Jameson, the food of my people. The cutting board looks dirty, but it's also stained with bad lighting. I don't wash between veggies, but i do clean and santatize after working with meat.

Once everything is combined, shove the entire concoction in the fridge. Let the flavors get to know each other.

Don't forget to salt the water! 

Oh, and white pepper at the end. It'll look better than black pepper. 

 

You can pair this with fake kalua pork. Take a pork butt, rub with liquid smoke and salt, and place in a crock pot. Cover and cook until it's done. Shred with a fork. Eat.

Do you have a picture of the finished salad, by any chance? :)

I took these photos a year ago. Obviously I started drinking and forgot to keep taking pics. Give me a few days and I'll make some more. My SO loves it. So does my best female friend.

      Tom has been live streaming a lot in the last few hours.  They are now on a plane en route to home.  At first I was a bit horrified at her being filmed in the state she is in but upon reflection I do think it will bring her kids some peace in the coming days/months/years to have gotten to 'experience' some of these final moments with their mom even though they are so far away.  In seeing the state Andrea is in and that her meds are only keeping her pain free for about 15 minutes at a time I do not believe she will have much more time left.  I hope she can make it home and have enough time to get her goodbyes in with her kids and other loved ones.

      I knew I had achieved peak parenthood when I was driving the kids to daycare and my 4-year-old said "I don't want to listen to Baby Shark, I want to listen to Bruce Singsteen." (yes, that's how he says it lol)

      That was me as a kid, Garth Brooks and Jimmy Buffett.

      ALSO Can Old town road finally die please? I got stuck in my seat at cmafest and had to listen to it :( The amount of millenials singing along was yucky, then no one knew Eric Church or Little Big Town.... AGH

      Liked this sentence (which sums up the “we get to be part of the Boys Club and are elevated above mere women” mentality):

      Also side eyeing the quotes about how “boymoms” are always cleaning up poop and toys...apparently under the impression that girl children are born litterbox trained and just sit around listening to NPR.

      Mother of girl dragons here. When Cloudlet #2 was in elementary school, she and her friend came up with a lovely game called “so you think you can burp”. And no, they do not come litter box trained.

      Watching the webcast of yesterday's sabbath assembly was the usual infomercial for "this place" and"Gwen's message". Had a lot of fun getting grossed out by David Martin's fashion choice of car salesman plaid jacket, enormous turned up and over, shirt cuffs, loose pale blue pants with tight ankles, and no socks. Poor Michael was brought in stealthily, once again all in black, hair higher than ever. Audience asked to rise for his performance. Such are the perks of royalty. Gagggg.. Now weasely David Martin can't wait to roll right into some other awful droning piece. The constant applause for grown men writhing on stage in stupid outfits is not something any normal person can get used to experiencing in a "church". These so-called leaders are unbelievable narcissists.

      The powerful message of the day, to quote David Martin was a WeighDown video. The title was Born Again Part 1. Really really awful. I amused my self laughing at Gwen being filmed lecturing in a red and white checked Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm dress held up with red ribbons. Ludicrous! But not as crazy as the summary of the film, Avatar, complete with many long scenes. I wonder if she paid for the right to show the film, probably not. Oh heavens. This went on for an hour.

      Timeless message, cries out D؛avid Martin. Errrrr, really old one. Then the youth group came on stage and sang while waving V for Victory. Then everyone held hands, and I was hoping they would stop soon. But no, they starting acting the song out. Awful awful awful. Applause. Some doofus came out and said Gwen's message was really powerful. No message like Gwen's on this planet right now. Oh boy. Where is the great teacher, I wonder? Is she off somewhere canoodling with Joe?

      The Eagle Room? Kent says you can go there if you are "convicted"!?!!?

      David Martin begging for everyone to get those testimonials in... It's the right thing to do. Gwen and the leaders need to see them. You are officially dis-missed!
