Mom’s Macaroni Salad

My aunt loves my mother’s macaroni salad.  So when she invited me to an end-of-summer cook-out, it was easy to decide what to bring.  Only problem:  The recipe is at my apartment in Virginia.  But I helped Mom make it enough when I was young that I figured I’d just wing it, while giving it my own spin.  I think it turned out pretty well.  I hope you do too.
