Celebrate Good Times...COLESLAW!


How to Make Coleslaw.
I made this today to bring to a SURPRISE Graduation party for a friend!
We had pulled pork sandwiches, so coleslaw is an essential side.

INGREDIENTS

1 head green cabbage, finely shredded
2 large carrots, finely shredded
3/4 mayo
2 tablespoons mayo
1/4 grated onion
2 tablespoons sugar or to taste
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons celery salt
salt and freshly ground pepper

THE STEPS

1. If you are not bald, do something to keep your hair from falling out into the food you are preparing. Some suggestions are, bandana, hair-net, shower cap, tuque, pony-tail, bun or hat.


2. Wash Hands. That is a given, so make sure you do.

3. In a large bowl, add all ingredients except the cabbage, carrots and onion

3/4 cup Mayonnaise


2 tablespoons ish Sour Cream

2 tablespoons White Vinegar

2 Tablespoons Sugar

2 teaspoons Celery Seed


Some Salt N Peppa (Preferably Freshly Ground, but work with what you got)




I used a couple squirts of Dijon Mustard instead of Dry Mustard.
Mixy-Moo it all together.
4. Find a sharp chopping knife (sorry for the blurry photos. I will use a different camera next time)

                                        

5. Chop up that Lettuce
6. Chop up the onion


7. Finely chop some carrots, or cheat and buy a bag like this!



8. Add them all to the bowl with the dressing in the bottom.


9. Mixy-Moo it all together, making sure it is all evenly coated, I used a rubber spatula to do this.

10. Cover, let chill out in the fridge for a couple hours.

Ta-Da! You Did it!

The Bees Are Back.

Helloooooo out there!
After a lengthy hiatus, I have returned to the beautiful world of blogging! Why you ask?
Well, after reading some old posts, I began to laugh. So many memories that I had forgotten until I read the old posts. I want to record my memories and this to me is a lot more fun than a boring old journal that I have to actually write in BY HAND. ( I honestly do get writer's cramp easily, I think it's because I refused to hold a pencil "correctly" since Kindergarten, I am paying for it now.)
I am a speedy typer, so that means, BAM, when a thought enters my mind, it comes out through my fingertips with much ease and therefore creates a very random blog. You will get used to my "style" of blogging (if you can call it that). I don't worry about my writing being, in any shape or form, correct. I am somewhat a rule breaker when it comes to blogging, and really no one can stop me...! I overuse exclamation points! but that's because I find a lot of things exciting and needing that extra exclamation. :) I also tend to forget to put some paragraphs in where the belong, I will try to be better at that one.

Now, things have changed a lot since my last post. For instance, we have added a new bee to our hive..lol. For the sake of sticking with my bee theme, BuzzBee (hubby) and I had a little "Bumble of Joy", his name shall be Bumble Bee. He's one and tons of fun.

Real men stand in fields of daffodils.

 The little Bumble Bee is napping right now, which is my now dedicated time to blog. I think I will do two posts a week to start, and go from there. The sleeping one is now awake so I  must be off!
Next post, how to make coleslaw and look cool doing it.
