Mom & Shellfish Memories / Macaroni Shrimp Salad

Great on my electric bill since I have a plug in mower, I don't mow and I don't have to worry about the electric bill. Still looking for a way to afford the Scallop Festival but just don't think it's going to work again this year, really bits cause the weather looks like it is going to be outstanding. Besides saving my pennies for the Oyster Festival in October.

Coconut oil is in fact a miracle oil and one of the earliest oils used as a food and as a pharmaceutical. People who live in tropical climates with a coconut-based diet have fewer incidences of heart disease, cancer, digestive complaints and prostate problems.
