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!
Recipe from AllRecipes.com
1 (16 oz.) package coleslaw mix
2 Tbsp. minced onion
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1. Combine coleslaw mix and onion in a large bowl.
2. Combine sugar, salt, pepper, milk, mayonnaise, buttermilk, vinegar and lemon juice in a separate bowl; mix until smooth.
3. Pour dressing over slaw; stir well and chill for 1 hour.
*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.
Breakfast this morning was pineapple Chobani yogurt, Strawberry Almond Vanilla Yogurt and mixed berries.
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?
