So, you may read this recipe and think I have completely lost my mind. Mayonaisse and jalepenos in a corn salad? Yes, this was delicious. My kids gave me the cross-eyed look when I served it to them but once they tried it they were shocked at how much they really liked it. It also pairs perfectly with the empanadas that we made the other night.
The salty taste of the cheese with creaminess of the mayonaisse was delicious. The jalepenos added a bit of heat. Taste the salad as you go to make sure you like the amount of spices and spiciness.

How much are we traveling this summer? Every single weekend, except for two, from the beginning of June to the middle of September. The cat is even done with us being gone as you can see above. She sees the suitcases come out and she tries to climb in. We are not supposed to forget to take her with us again!
Because we are traveling so much I am not buying groceries as I normally do. I am using up every little scrap I can find in the pantry, refrigerator, and freezer to save money. My children and I were going through the freezer the other night and found some ground beef and a couple of boxes of pierogi. I knew we had some salsa in the pantry and cheddar cheese in the fridge.
