Last Minute Dinner Guests!

Sunday afternoon, some friends called to invite us out for dinner. Well, neither one of us was in the mood for a drive into Anchorage, so we invited them to dinner at our house instead. Luckily, I had made a big bowl of coleslaw earlier in the day and there was a huge batch of chicken defrosting. The beginnings of a perfect meal! I roasted some cut-up potatoes, Rick grilled the chicken and I made a salad. Dinner was complete.

Here's one of my favorite coleslaw recipes. It was given to me by an old friend from Binghamton, New York that I have lost contact with. These things happen.

Linda Rosenberg's Coleslaw

1 small to medium head of cabbage
1 onion
1 pepper (green or red)
2 carrots
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp dry mustard
1 TBSP salt
1 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup oil

Grate or shred (I use my Cuisinart) the cabbage, onion, pepper and carrots into a large bowl. Sprinkle with the sugar.
Put the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil and pour it over the shredded vegetables. Stir well. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator for several hours before serving.

Yum Yum sounds the non meat parts sound good to me.
Glad you had a good time.
