A recipe for you!

My good shopping buddy Mel and I were in our favorite store yesterday. It is not the cheapest store in town, but they provide the valuable service of taking care of our kidlets for us, so I'm willing to shell out a few extra bucks for groceries! We have shopped together for about eight years now and have quite the system going. Nine times out of ten we're able to manage to get a week's worth of groceries for two families into one cart and we have a grand ol' time doing it. Yesterday the cashier actually asked us if we share a day care or something because of our shopping habits!

Yesterday Mel pointed out a new produce item...broccoli slaw. It has broccoli, carrots and cabbage all chopped up into skinny teeny strips, mixed together and packaged into a nice little rectangle of veg. She decided to buy some and pass it off to her family as cole slaw. I read the suggested recipe on the back and decided to give that a go. They suggest mixing the broccoli veg mix with a chopped apple, a can of pineapple bits and some vinaigrette dressing. I'm making that for tonight and calling it "tooty fruity salad".

Maybe I should go back into bloggy hiding if the best I can do is make up stinkin' jokes...

the broc-slaw mix also makes good stir-fry and soup veggies.

My mom makes brocoli slaw with Marzetti's slaw dressing and slivered almonds and raisins and it's awesome. I prefer no raisins, but even with raisins I'll eat it.
