The Best Macaroni Salad I've Ever Had

My husband and I like to watch all the cooking shows on Food Network and the Cooking Channel. We were watching Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives when Guy Fieri visited The Shed in Ocean Springs, MD. They demonstrated how to make Mama Mia's Macaroni Salad. It looked delicious!

After a short search on Google, I found this recipe. I've adapted it a little to suit our taste. If you're looking for something to take to your next get-together, try this. It's yummy.

This recipe makes enough to feed about 8 or so people. I always make it and keep it in the fridge and we snack on it during the week. You could easily halve this recipe if you wanted to.

Mama Mia's Macaroni Salad - Fort Worth Mama's version

4 cups uncooked shell pasta
2 cups mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoon onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt (more or less)
2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 bell pepper chopped
1 onion chopped
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions. Drain pasta - set aside to cool to room temperature.
Mix together all of the ingredients except bell pepper, onion and cheese.
Mix sauce with the pasta.
Add in chopped bell pepper, onion and cheddar cheese.

What are some things you like to make to take to get-togethers?

Hurst Recreation Center - Fun Things For Kids and Adults To Do

Did you know that Hurst Recreation Center offers tons of things for your little ones to do? And don't worry, you don't have to be a resident of Hurst - you just have to pay a couple extra dollars for each class if you live outside of Hurst.

Here's a link to a PDF file. It's the Where We Live magazine and it includes all the classes you can sign your kids up for fall classes. The classes for children start on page 29.

You can start them as young as 18 months with classes like Crafty Squiggly where your little ones can create masterpieces. There's lots of classes to choose from for the 3- to 5-year-old set. I just noticed a sewing club class for 7- to 12-year-olds. Wouldn't that be fun? Start 'em young!!

You can also take some classes for yourself. There's a class called Recycled Couture where you can turn plastic bottles or old t-shirts into new things. That sounds interesting, doesn't it? Or you can learn how to dance or paint or play an instrument. There's tons of things to choose from.

Registration for the Fall classes starts August 1 for residents of Hurst and August 8 for nonresidents. For further details see page 48 of the PDF file above.

My daughter has taken an art class, tumbling class, a dance class and she's on her second summer of swim lessons. I've had nothing but great experiences with Hurst Rec Center. Check it out and let me know what you think!!

(Here's a link to the Winter edition of the magazine just in case you like to plan way ahead like me.)
