Hello Sugar:
How does one dice things. I would love to do that, but cannot always get perfect outcome.
Thanks.

Blessings to you as well.

Here is my macaroni salad:
Sugar’s Macaroni salad

For a crowd:
2lbs of pasta, your choice(I use lg. elbow ½ yellow bell pepper,diced ½ red bell pepper,diced 3celery sticks,diced ½ red onion, diced
1 can of Large pitted black olives, sliced(drained) Mayo(according to taste Salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions:
In a large pot, fill with water adding salt and garlic.
Once it has a rolling boil, add the pasta.
Leave for about 10-15 minutes, checking for doneness and softness.
Once soft, but not falling apart, drain the water,(rinse if desired) Place pasta in a large bowl, adding mayo and the veggies little by little.
Mixing gently, tasteing for more salt if needed.
Keep adding pasta, mayo, veggies and salt until satisfied.
Remember that it is best to make the night before, letting the flavors sit in, and in the morning, check for dryness or taste.
Note”
It is always better to be a little on the dry side, that way in the morning, you may add mor mayo because if you add to much then it is much difficult to make right;if this does happen, just boil more water and make more pasta.

There is speaking grace. Colossians 4:6 says, “Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”
~Blessings, Sugar

How about potato salad?  Or a pasta one?
I also have a trifle recipe that would feed quite a few that I just made recently. It's good and easy. No cooking required.
I'll paste it here.
ANGEL STRAWBERRY BANANA TRIFLE

INGREDIENTS:

1 5-ounce package instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
1 (9 inch) prepared angel food cake, cut in cubes
4 bananas, sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 1/2 pounds sliced strawberries
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare pudding with milk according to package directions.
In a glass serving dish (or trifle bowl) layer half the cake pieces, half the pudding, half the bananas, half the strawberries and half the whipped topping. Repeat layers.
Cover and chill in refrigerator 4 hours before serving.

Hello all I am attending a pot luck and have been asked to bring something for approximately 25 to 30 people. Does anyone have suggestions for something that is quick and easy to make that is also inexpensive and that doesn't take a long time to make please send. It can be something that can be part of the main meal or a dessert. So far all I know is that someone is bringing pulled pork and macaroni & cheese.
Thanks
