4th of July Macaroni Salad

Debra Hughes


Hubby works for Airlines, called and asked for his"fave" macaroni salad to bring to Pot Luck lunch. I did not have a bowl big enough to send it in so ..I bought a sand bucket with shovel, adding a tiny American Flag.. Ton's of smiles, now I just hope they enjoy the salad. :)
