Tutorial Tuesday #1

Welcome Welcome to the first Tutorial Tuesday on Our Thrifty Ideas.
I’m so excited for this new feature each week!! I seriously already have so many projects in mind to use as our feature tutorial.

But first, the RULES:

  • Link up as many posts as you’d like, but please make sure they are a tutorial.
  • Leave a link directly to your tutorial, not your homepage
  • Visit other’s that are linked up. I know we all like to get comments, so leave some love when you visit.
I’d love if you become a follower of Our Thrifty Ideas
Please Take the Tutorial Tuesday Button and put it somewhere on your blog (located in the sidebar)
I will feature one, or a few, of my favorite linked up tutorials next week!
This week I decided to do an easy tutorial. Reason- I got an ingrown fingernail and to tell you the truth, typing hurts so bad %!:#~*&!.
I made this for dinner the other day, and it went perfect with the warm 70 degree weather we WERE having (wish that weather was still around!)

Pasta Salad:

Rotini Pasta
Canned Baby Corn
Kidney Beans
Italian Dressing
Cook the Rotini Pasta according to the package. Slice your olives, mushrooms, and baby corn to bite size. Drain and wash your kidney beans and cut up your broccoli. Throw all of them together in a bowl and toss with Italian Dressing. Refrigerate until chilled.
Oh, did I mention it was EASY?! That’s it. I’ve grown up on this salad, and of course have always added/taken away different ingredients. This is my current favorite combination. But you could totally make it your own or just make it with the yummy veggies you have on hand.
The other night we had them with Pulled Pork Sandwiches (recipe coming soon) and it was a great combo.
Now, on to the Linky Party!
