Crab Pasta Salad

Crab Pasta Salad
Does anyone you know get a little crabby on Sunday?

The work/school week is about to begin and the stress level seem to RISE!

The stores are crowded, so if  you need anything chances are it’s better to wait until Monday.

Although Monday is not a very popular day…. people even start talking about Friday on Monday…..or is that just me?

This week don’t let everyone else be crabby.

Make this dish and say you’re going to be CRABBY too!

I bet someone will want to grab a fork and join you. Once bite and maybe they’ll like this crabby alternative better.

This is a really quick and easy dish to mix up and have in the fridge all week long, perfect for a quick snack on the run….now that you’ll be heading to the store…It’s way less crowded now that it’s Monday.

Don’t forget a fork!
