This bacon and avocado pasta salad has a little different flavor than you would find in the average pasta salad. It gets most of this flavor because of the dressing.

This recipe does require a little bit of prep work but it is very easy to prepare. You can serve this as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak or even serve it as the main course. Enjoy.

Pictured above: FBI Records: The Vault/Mary Jo Kopechne (Chappaquiddick) Part 1 of 2 VAV!/July 19, 2015 On the evening of July 19, 1969 sometime about 11:15, ending a day of sailing, drinking and merry making, 38 year old Sen. Edward Moore Kennedy (February 22, 1932 – August 25, 2009) of Massachusetts and a family member of one of the most famous names in America, drove his black Oldsmobile sedan off a narrow wooden bridge into Poucho Pond, of Chappaquiddick Island on Martha's Vineyard, consequently trapping and drowning his passenger, 28 year old Mary Jo Kopechne (July 26, 1940 – July 18, 1969) in a mere seven dark feet of water.    Kennedy, eventually told the state officials he was traveling at 20 miles an hour, and had lost his way... At 8:20 am, two individuals fishing from the bridge, noticed the rear wheels of the car involved in the tragedy. Edgartown Police Chief Dominick J. Arena was contacted. Pictured above:  Mary Jo Kopechne Kopechne, who worked on the late Robert Kennedy's 1968 presidential campaign, was one of six "boiler room girls" along with Esther Newberg, 26, Nance Lyons, 26, Maryellen Lyons, 27, Susan Tannenbaum, 24, and Rosemary Keough, 23,  attending the weekend party with Kennedy.  Other married men (with the exception of one) were also in attendance at the party. Kennedy, a second-term senator , left the scene of the accident and did not report the event for nearly 10 hours, ultimately stating that he "panicked." Some sources believe that Kennedy was 'sobering up' and preparing an alibi for his actions. 

 

Crab Puffs Recipe

VAV!/June 30, 2015/Contributed by Bobby of the Blog Chef.net Crab puffs are placed high on my list of appetizers. Crab puffs are a perfect snack for any party or get together. There are many ways to make crab puffs but this method has to be my favorite. Instead of having the crab baked right into the dough, the puffs are baked in the oven, cut in half and then filled with a delicious crab mixture. Over-all there is a little work involved with this recipe but nothing major. The crab mixture is delicious enough to eat by itself. Everyone around my house just devoured these; they were gone in no time. The recipe calls for canned crab but imitation crab will work as well. If you are in need of an amazing appetizer, give this recipe for crab puffs a try! Enjoy.
