Midwest Macaroni Salad

Well, if this don't just beat all! Not only does this recipe have a title that hereby makes it the unofficial official recipe of Midwest Cookin, but it also contains not one but THREE of the key ingredients of cookin in the Midwest: Miracle Whip, bologna/SPAM, and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Dinner! God, if only it had Jello in it too! (Say, somebody out there should really try that...)

1 pkg. Kraft Macaroni and Cheese Dinner (or Cheese and Macaroni if you're a smartass kid)
1 12-oz can luncheon meat (i.e., SPAM) or 1/2 bologna cut in strips
1/2 c. diced celery
1/2 c. chopped green pepper
1/4 c. chopped sweet pickle
2 tbsp. finely chopped onion
1/2 c. Miracle Whip Salad (Dressin)
1/2 c. shredded carrot

How To:
Add remainin ingredients, mix lightly and chill. (Huh? Remainin...Oh, I get it. We're missin some steps. Make the Mac N Cheese first, then add the remainin ingredients to THAT. Real specific there, Mrs. Lena Thomas. And what size bowl, pray tell, shall be used for this recipe? You don't say? Well then, I would make this in a large salad bowl. One with a Tupperware lid, preferably. It will be easier to tote to the PTA Potluck that way.)
