The other night I was faced with the dilemma of what to have for dinner. It was a rare occasion that Joe would’t be there, and on those nights I like to be spontaneous about what I eat. I thought pasta sounded good, but I didn’t want something with cream and I didn’t feel like any sort of tomato sauce. Once I thought of my mom’s macaroni salad recipe I knew I wanted a variation of that. I sized the recipe way down so I wouldn’t have a week’s worth of leftovers and I knew I wanted something crunchy so I added a green onion. Other new additions are just a little bit of mustard and crème fraîche to add a little extra something. I also used a large can of tuna and three eggs to up the protein.
