Less than 2 weeks before Christmas, I finally get a tree up and decorated!
We've always had a small tree, so this year with our new house, I wanted to finally get something bigger.
My awesome Dad went to a doorbusters sale at 7am this morning and snagged a new tree for us at 70% off! Score! I will share a photo in Monday's post!
Even though it's almost Christmas and the middle of winter, I still crave a good pasta salad.
I usually make them more in the summertime for BBQ's, but they actually go great with any type of meal.
This pasta salad is perfect with the crab and bacon added in. I use imitation crab, but if you have fresh crab, this salad would be even better.
I love eating the leftovers for lunch the next day, with some extra sauce added in.
What is your favorite type of pasta salad?
