Show em Bob!!
Also I know that my Mother LOVES me because she has dial up and still reads my blog with the 700 pictures with every post! Thank you Mommy...
Ok here goes...Put a pot of water on to boil for your macaroni...
Then get a medium size sauce pan and add
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of flour
1 teaspoon of mustard.
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1 teaspoon of salt
Then 3 eggs. I like brown and wisk them up like this!!!!!
Then add it all in the saucepan and stir it all up really well like this!!!
Bring that all to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Be sure to stir a LOT because this will thicken as you go...You don't want it to stick..then just let it simmer while you get the rest of the stuff together..
Big onion or medium depending how much you like onion. I like it a lot...And then about three stalks of celery. Then dice it all up like this...
Please rinse the macaroni and let drain.
And then...the secret...while the sauce is simmering...I add a teaspoon of celery seed to the mix. The heat kinda opens up the seed and distributes the flavor throughout.
Then turn off the heat and add REAL mayonnaise to the sauce. (I use 2 cups, but use what tastes best to you.) Stirring constantly to a smooth consistency. The sauce will be kinda tangy but don't worry because it will all calm down. Trust me..
Then just add the drained macaroni to the bowl with the chopped celery and onion and mix. Then slowly add the sauce and stir as you go. Add all of it or less whatever suits you. Even if it is a little *soupy* the macaroni will absorb it overnight. It is best to let this set overnight. Then the next day stir and serve.
This goes PERFECT with baked beans. Its just like salt and pepper. Clouds and sky. Rowan and Martin. Mickey and Me. Me and Bob.. Well you get the idea.
This is what it looks like before it sets over night. YUMMY.
You can also use the same sauce for potato salad. Now it wont absorb the excess like the macaroni does, so your consistency will remain pretty much the same as when you put it in the frig over night. So don't make it too soupy.
This is my signature recipe. Enjoy. Make it. Tell me what you think. Tell me what you did different to make it your own. You can add hard boiled eggs. Pickles I suppose. Whatever. Have fun...
