Moms Classic Macaroni Salad With Egg
Moms Classic Macaroni Salad with Egg was and is everyone in the family’s favorite. To say my mother is famous for her macaroni salad would be an understatement. This classic version of macaroni salad is always a hit.
There was always a running joke amongst my siblings, my cousins and myself. When our mothers were getting together to plan a picnic. We all knew that the plan would always be the same Ha Ha.
My mother would bring her famous Classic Macaroni with Egg, her sister Joyce would bring her also very delicious potato salad and her sister Jeanne would bring her yummy coleslaw. They really just wanted to get together and visit.
I think everyone is usually fond of whatever they grew up on. Moms Classic Macaroni Salad with Egg is definitely one of those things that I will always think of in my childhood memories.
It was at every picnic or party. Luckily I have been able to pass that tradition on to my children. They all love macaroni salad. My son told his wife when they got married – my mother taught me to cook 2 things -macaroni salad and Spaghetti (I’m sure that recipe will make the blog before long.)
