French's recipe ideas (because I like winning things :))

So, French's has a great recipe giveaway for Mother's Day and..I personally like winning things so- I am posting a recipe of theirs and a recipe of my own. In theory you are supposed to make it easy enough so your kids can do it with YOU....my secret hope is that the recipes are easy enough that your husband can make them with your kids--thereby relieving you of cooking on MD. Pretty sneaky, eh???
What are your kids doing for you for Mother's Day????

Hope its Great..

This is the recipe posted from the official French's site: Yummmmm.....

Look for FRENCH'S® French Fried Onions in the canned vegetable aisle!
Variation: Add 1 tsp. curry powder to crushed onions.




Here is my recipe:

Easy and tasty pasta salad

Boil 1 lb any style macaroni (use something different than elbows...they're so boring :))
Wash and Chop 2 sticks of celery (fine or chunky..depending on your preference)
Hard boil, peel and chop 2 eggs
Wash, core and chop one bell pepper (I like red for color)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl
Then add 1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
and 1-2 TBS FRENCH'S yellow or Spicy yellow mustard. You can add more mustard in 1 TBS. increments if you want more mustard flavor.
Salt and pepper to taste
Stir REALLY well to coat all pasta.
Chill and serve!!!

Optional:
You can add 1/2 yellow onion or red onion to this recipe if you want to. My family doesn't care for onions so- I leave it out!

If your household is not a "mayo" household...you can add Italian dressing in 1 tbs increments instead of mayo. You just need to stir harder to coat!
