Shrimp Macaroni Salad

Hello hello! What's been happening this fine Thursday? Was it an actual Spring day for you or a wanna be? I don't consider 50 something degree weather Spring and that's what NYC has so I will stick to wanna be. Not to mention I wore a scarf today because of the wind!

Tonight I have my volunteer night at Family Shelter. Last time we dabbled in food and exercise this time around it will be games and arts and crafts so should be fun. I am going to leave you though with my ever evolving Thursday's treat!

Tonight it's Shrimp Macaroni Salad

-macaroni pasta
-medium shrimps cooked and peeled
-sweet peppers

You can't beat a 4 ingredient meal, especially if there is very little cooking time involved. I chose a cold salad tonight because of time constraints. So you boil your water, add 2 cups of macaroni pasta and cook for about 10/12 minutes.
While that cooks chop up 1 cup of sweet peppers small pieces but not too small you want a nice bite size. You mix in your clean, ready to go 2 cups of medium size shrimps and set aside. Once pasta is done drain and add to your bowl of Shrimps, peppers and add 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Mix well  I found 3 to be perfect amount for those of you who are not to keen on mayo you can reduce to your liking or add more if you are like me and like mayo.

Once you have mixed it up place in fridge for about an hour and serve. I was very pleased with my time and easy clean up and my belly was happy as well. Just in time to leave for volunteer duties.

Always stress free xo.
