Maybe I'm back

Ok maybe I'm back but who knows.  It all depends on how busy my life gets.  I'll try to atleast update regarding great recipes and maybe put up some crafts I have completed from time to time.

Pasta salad

Note: This was a draft for a long while back that I forgot to post but now it's up.  So the date is wrong.

Today I made pasta salad for a potluck at church. The recipe is below. Unbelabley I did end up following the recipe as was.  (ok so it is my own recipe so maybe that's why I followed it.   Sorry no picture I forgot to take one before I left for the potluck and now it's gone. 

Seafood Salad

1 ½  pound shrimp, peel                                                                 
1 (16 ounces) package noodle shells (#27)
1 (12 ounces) package imitation crab meat, cubed
½ cup chives, finely chopped
1 cup mayonnaise (For some reason it sometimes need more than 1 cup)
1 cup frozen peas (optional)
black pepper to taste

Season shrimp and cook (without adding water) over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes.  Be careful not to over cook shrimp; drain and cool. Prepare noodles according to package directions; drain and rinse.  When shrimp and noodles are cooled combine all ingredients in a salad bowl; mix well.  Refrigerate and allow to chill thoroughly before serving.

You may wish to set a few shrimp aside in order to garnish
