I was asked to make coleslaw for a dinner this last week for a large group of people at church. I think they were expecting bagged coleslaw and bottled sauce…that would have been the easiest, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do that so I decided to make my favorite recipe and hoped they would like it.
A favorite memory from my childhood was going to the Café (pronounced kâ-fey by the locals) with my grandparents in Rock Springs, Wyoming. I don’t remember the name of it because it was always referred to as THE café. The only café we ever went to. It had a red awning and brick walls. The interior was brown carpet, red chairs, and somewhat of an Asian/American dark decor. The menu had everything from stir fry to open-faced turkey & gravy sandwiches and my favorite, breaded veal. It wasn’t exactly the best cooking in the world but it was our café and a tradition every time we visited grandma and grandpa.
I knew it would be hard starting a diet in the middle of the holidays and this weekend I didn’t fare well at all, but that doesn’t mean I’m giving up!
