So, how was your Mother’s Day? Did your children join you at church wearing their Sunday best? Bring you breakfast in bed or give you all the sweet and wonderful expressions of their love your heart could hold? Mine was well partially a horrid day. I had asked for one thing, my family to Spring clean. So, after they were all up, after noon, after I had been at church playing bells, they got up and wanted food. Then they all disappeared. I boiled eggs, started cleaning the kitchen, and picking up the living room. It was 2:30 pm before I saw anyone. So, it was time to start! I ended up at the beach for two hours because I couldn’t stand them all complaining and yelling. I didn’t get what I wanted. I got a 20 minute half-hearted pick up and a semi clean mud room. Yeah, mom! Ugh. Hope your day went better than mine.
But, dinner was good. We bought pulled pork for a school fundraiser and it had been frozen so we only had to reheat it. A simple pasta salad, brown baked beans, and deviled eggs made my Mother’s Day meal.
I have two children who will eat macaroni salad but not actually like it. They don’t like the mayonnaise much but I really wanted a macaroni salad to complement the pulled pork. So, I started digging through the refrigerator. Parmesan cheese! Cheese fixes everything according to my family.
They LOVED it! My son would have eaten the entire bowl if we let him. He had two big servings and that is unusual for him. My daughter liked it but still thought the texture was a bit weird. I wonder if I change the pasta shape if she will like it better.
