2 recipes today

i know i know i haven't done this in a REALLY long time.....but here's a couple of my FAVORITE summertime recipes:

Italian Pasta Salad

1 pound noodle of your choice (i don't like long for this)
green pepper

optional:  any other uncooked veggies of your choice
Italian Dressing (Wishbone original)

Boil noodles, drain and rinse in cold water.  put in container with lid that can go in fridge.  Add whole bottle (like medium sized bottle) on top of noodles and put in fridge to combine.  Chop veggies to your size liking (i like a small chop).  Apple of your choice (i like fugi or gala) dice small with skin on.  add all veggies to the noodle mixture and stir around.  Can serve immediately OR tastes better the longer it is able to sit in the dressing.

Tuna Noodle Salad

1 pound noodle of your choice
2 cans tuna in water drained
miracle whip (or mayo if you like that)

optional items chopped small:  pickles, celery, carrots, onions, peppers

Cook noodles drain and rinse in cold water, chop your veggies while cooking the noodles.  Drain tuna add to bottom of bowl, add veggies to that and mix.  Add cold noodles and then mayo on top and mix away ---- i usually use alot of light miracle whip because i like it 'creamier' but some people might like it drier so just put in less mayo.

Hope you enjoy.  Maybe one of these days I will come here and actually fill in some gaps going on in my life.....
