Mom made this awesome salad a lot.  Somehow I lost the original recipe so I'm going on memory alone here.

1 box elbow pasta
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 red pepper, chopped
1 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cups mild cheddar cheese (or American) in small cubes
1 cup Miracle Whip
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
salt to taste

Prepare pasta according to package directions being careful not to overcook it.  Drain and rinse with cold water at least 3 times.  Pour a cup of vinegar over the pasta, toss to coat and set aside.  Let rest at least 15 minutes and then drain any remaining vinegar.

Mix the pasta, veggies and cheese together.  Prepare the dressing in a small bowl.  Combine the Miracle Whip, tablespoon of vinegar, sugar, pepper and salt.  Mix well.  Add about half to the pasta and toss.  Add more dressing as needed.  Chill two hours before serving.

This was Grandma's favorite cornbread recipe, but I have no idea what makes it 'Louisiana'.   You can make it as thin or thick as you like by adjusting the amount you put into each baking pan.

One cup of cornmeal,
One and one-quarter cups of flour,
One teaspoon of salt,
Five level teaspoons of baking powder,
Two tablespoons of shortening,
Four tablespoons of syrup,
One egg,
One and one-half cups of milk.
Pre-Heat oven to 375 degrees.  In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and beat hard to mix.  Then pour into well-greased square pans. Bake for thirty-five minutes at 375 degrees.
