145.4…Restaurant-Style Coleslaw

We decided to barbecue hot dogs last night and we decided coleslaw would be a perfect match for the hot dogs. Instead of using my favorite coleslaw recipe, I  decided to try a new one: Restaurant-Style Coleslaw. The two taste completely different and while the other recipe is still my favorite, this one was pretty darn good!

*Note: I prefer my coleslaw less sweet, so I reduced the sugar a bit. 

 

Saturday night we went out with some friends to Mia Francesca. We shared a few starters: Calamari

For my entree, I ordered the Sea Bass. It had artichokes, capers and mushrooms in an amazing sauce. It was excellent!

After dinner, we took the kids to see the movie Planes, Fire & Rescue. It was ok. Definitely not as good as the first one. 

Breakfast yesterday morning was scrambled egg beaters, salsa and cheddar cheese.

I spent just about the entire day cleaning out my son's room and his closet as well as the toy area downstairs. It was a workout all on its own.

Lunch was tuna salad, veggies and ranch dressing.

Last night was the barbecue dinner I mentioned. Besides the coleslaw, we had hot dogs, corn on the cob and baked beans.

After I took the kids to camp, I decided to try a new Pilates class. Teacher was a no-show. Fail. Instead of boring myself on the elliptical, I ran a bunch of errands instead. 

Lunch today was a turkey sandwich, leftover coleslaw and watermelon.

This week my daughter gets out of camp at 1, my son gets out at 3 and he has basketball three times this week. I will live in my car basically.

Do you have a favorite coleslaw recipe? Do you prefer your coleslaw sweet or not?

I prefer a more tangy coleslaw - more on the vinegary side vs. mayo side. Looks like good eats all the way around!
