Macaroni Salad

I love macaroni salad!  There are a million ways to make it; this is the one I like best.  

3 cups uncooked macaroni
4 hard boiled eggs (chopped)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped red or green pepper
1/2 cup thawed frozen peas
2 cups miracle whip
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2-1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/3 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1.  Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil.  Boil macaroni for 9-10 minutes.  Drain, set aside to cool.

2.  In a large bowl stir together onion, celery, red pepper, peas and eggs.  

3.  In a small bowl stir together miracle whip, mustard, sugar, vinegar, celery seed, salt and pepper, pour over vegetables, and stir in macaroni until well blended.   Cover and chill for at least an hour before serving.
