Macaroni Shrimp Salad – #lunch

I am in the midst of emptying/cleaning/painting the master bedroom walk-in closet while hubby is on business travel.

I made this Macaroni Shrimp Salad two weekends ago. It is not my lunch today.

Offspring3 was watching YouTube clips of Jimmy Fallon as I went upstairs to take this photo…this one with Jonah Hill:


OK…back to #lunch above…

Husband requested a batch of Macaroni Shrimp Salad. He brought home some beautiful shrimp from our local Green Valley. I was not really feelin’ it, but I made it. Even without a gallbladder, the mayonnaise in this bothers me, so I was not planning on consuming much after the tasting to see if there was enough Old Bay Seasoning. But guess what?? The Old Bay was exactly what I needed to get me out of the mid-winter food blahs!

Here is the recipe that I found came the closest to what we make. It is not exact, but I am not giving away this family recipe! (sorry!) I will say, our version contains no onion, dill or chives. And I used a lot more Old Bay.  😉
