Minnie Mouse Bowtique Pasta Salad

Hello! This pasta salad is bright pink and with bow pasta, to fit into Salem’s Minnie Bowtique Party. It is fairly simple to make colorful pasta, just boil water and add food coloring rightafter dumping the pasta in. The pasta becomes soft as it absorbs the boiling water, so if the water is blue, youll have blue pasta. For Salem, we made the water pink and added the bow-shaped pasta and got this beautiful result. To make the pasta salad, we added some poppy seed dressing, green onion, olives, corn, peas and onions and mixed it together. All in all, the guests were impressed with this easy, delicious pasta salad. We also served Minnie and Mickey Fondant Cakes and Minnie and Mickey Oreo Pops.

Other ideas could be:

  • Boiling three pots of water and splitting the spaghetti into the pots with different colors, then mixing them together to creat a tricolored spaghetti dish.
  • Adding a bit of blue food coloring to Macaroni and Cheese to create a green-blue result.
  • Using the color and pasta type for a themed festive event and serving pasta or pasta salad.

Hope you enjoyed. Feel free to email me with any questions at redheadedwhovian@gmail.com

Crockpot Potato Salad

I honestly was not quite expecting to find a crockpot potato salad recipe… I was just reading a magazine and came across it and decided I had to try it. Of course, I made quite a few necessary changes…. When a recipe calls for half an onion in a recipe like this.. No, that’s not going to cut it.

The mustard, vinegar, celery, bacon…. all of it together with the potatoes just tasted amazing. I highly recommend it, although it doesn’t quite keep as well as I’d hoped.
