Pasta Salad

Today is the day where I make a slew of salads and such for P to eat while I'm out of town for the weekend. This is among the things I made*:

1 package salad macaroni
2 teaspoons salt

1 large tomato, diced
6 pickles, diced (sometimes I just use prepared dill relish)
2 cups diced bell pepper
1 cup diced celery
.5 cup sliced scallion (or diced onion)
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons mayonnaise (more if you like it wet)
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon each: celery salt, cumin, dry mustard, cayenne, paprika, coriander seed, garlic powder, onion powder (when I'm feeling sassy, I add some fenugreek, too)
1 teaspoon each: seasoned salt, lemon pepper

Cook macaroni with salt. Drain and cool. Combine with other ingredients, stir well. Chill, eat. Makes 2 quarts.

*Ok... in all honesty, I only make half batches of this. He usually eats the whole bowl in one sitting, so I am scared for him if I make the whole thing. But mainly this is how you make it. Oh, and if you like more flavourings, change it up!
