Power Outage Pasta Salad

Last weekend sure was interesting. Saturday was scrub, clean, scrub, and clean. It was warm and sunny. About mid-afternoon some clouds came in and a storm. Then the power started to flicker, and yes....it went out and didn't come back on. No problem, we were grilling on Saturday anyway. After dinner, we relaxed with the candles and crank radio and we finally went to bed. As we were heading to bed we joked about how the power will come on in the middle of the night and maybe wake us. Nope.

Sunday, no power, now time to start being concerned. I decided no one is to touch the fridge. This is important, as my oysters for Whisk Wednesday were in the fridge. Lunch time came and we wondered....what would we have? Having a well stocked pantry never hurt anyone and I headed to see what I could invent.

That's a long time with no power! We were out once for over 2 days and I thought I was going to go crazy. I could do nothing, except work in the yard but it was raining at the time.

Power Outage or not your salad sound pretty good!
