Recent yumminess

When my best friend and I gave our two seniors a graduation party, her sister-in-law made a great bow tie pasta salad. Yesterday I tried to make it and didn't quite have all the ingredients she mentioned. So, I got creative and added a couple more ingredients that sounded good and it turned out REALLY well. My picky boy liked it and we had some unexpected company for dinner and they LOVED it.
(or they lied really well) : )

Yummy Bow Tie Pasta  (how is that for a title?)

Cook your pasta according to directions and drain. In a bowl, mix the pasta with:
 one jar of cut up roasted red peppers
One packet of dry Ranch dressing mix
 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/2 of mayonnaise
1/4 cup of cream cheese
Cut up and cook some kielbasa sausage in olive oil and then add to the pasta. STIR.

Then make the Pioneer Woman's corn casserole to go with it. It is so summery and colorful because it has red peppers and jalapenos in it. And while you are shucking the corn your husband can make all kinds of corny jokes or at least, that is what mine did. : )

We had some more birthdays in our girls' Bible class and to celebrate, Joy and I tried an Oreo Cupcake recipe! You put an open Oreo in the bottom of each cupcake holder before you add the batter! You also put crushed Oreos in the batter and on top.

All the 'lids' went on top for decoration.  
Not only were they yummy, we also found out they are sturdy, because I took a sharp turn in the car and they turned upside down and still looked nice afterwards. ugh! Thanks for sharing Julie!
