Pioneer Day with Friends and Recipe - Strawberry Poppyseed Pasta Salad

We spent the evening of Pioneer Day at the Nelson's annual barbecue and fireworks show.  I am so thankful that although we have moved from our previous ward, we are still close with our friends from the old ward still include us in get togethers!  I was worried we would lost touch, but that has not been the case.  I think we will all be lifelong friends, hooray!  The fireworks show is always amazing, but this year had to be the best yet!

I made a new pasta salad for the evening.  The recipe comes from Six Sisters Stuff, and it is a keeper.  I really love that the dish has fruit in it, which one doesn't find very often with pasta salads.

Strawberry Poppyseed Salad

16 ounces bowtie pasta, cooked according to the package directions
3/4 cup cream poppyseed dressing
3/4 cup light mayonnaise
4 green onions, sliced
11 ounce can of m
andarin oranges, drained
1 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

Drain and rinse cooked pasta with cold water.  Mix dressing and mayonnaise in a large mixing bowl.  Add pasta and onions and mix gently until evenly coasted.  Fold in oranges and strawberries.  refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
