 How was your Father's Day weekend? We had a great time and played our annual Father's Day Challenge of Kids vs. Dads. It was a riot! One of these days when I have a few minutes, I will give you all of the details. It's such a fun way to celebrate the amazing Dad's in our life. I couldn't have asked for a better Dad. I love him so much! He is such an amazing person and example to me. I could go on for hours of why I love him, but I will spare you :) One thing I love about my Dad is his love for good food. For my gift to him on Father's Day all he wanted was a big bowl of macaroni salad. He has always loved macaroni salad and he can make a mean batch of salad. I have a mission in life--to cure the world of disgusting macaroni salad. You can't buy a good macaroni salad. The ones sold from grocery stores are completely uneatable. So, with this macaroni salad recipe, you will forever and always save the world from another bowl of gross pasta salad. And doesn't that just bring a sense of accomplishment? If you need an awesome salad to bring to your upcoming 4th of July bbq's, this is the one for you! Enjoy ;)

Best Macaroni Salad

1 lb. macaroni or small pasta noodle
6 oz. black olives, drained and sliced
1 cup diced tomatoes
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup green onions, sliced
5 boiled eggs, chopped
1 cup dill pickles, diced
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup cheese cubes
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled

Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup pickle juice

Boil the pasta in a large pot until tender. When tender, drain the pasta and place in a large bowl. While noodles are cooking, prepare the other ingredients by slicing the olives, cutting the tomatoes, the pepper, onions, and pickles. Boil the eggs until the center is cooked (about 7-10 minutes). Remove egg shells and chop the eggs into bite sized pieces. Cut the cheese cubes and cook the bacon until crispy. When bacon is cooled, crumble the bacon. For the sauce, whisk together all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth. Place the noodles in a bowl, all of the salad ingredients and toss with the sauce. Keep the salad refrigerated until ready to serve.
