today is nasty and rainy and did i mention nasty? well it is. apparently there is this line of severe thunderstorms that is moving through the area.
see i like the rain. when i’m at home and can nap/sleep to it. but if i have to get out in it, no thanks. and because i’m a rational person, i can’t just call in to work because it’s raining.
rainy days like this make me appreciate the sunny days. don’t get me wrong… i’m not ready for it to be summer here. it just gets too damn hot. but i am ready for sunny days and the potential for getting together and bbqs and such. and what goes better on a bbq table than a creamy bowl of cole slaw? not too much. it is the perfect accompaniment to a spicy bbq pork sandwich. this version has been passed to my mom from my aunt leah (my mom’s brother’s wife… just in case you were wondering). i happen to really like it. my mom has made some tweeks because she does that. this cole slaw is definitely the creamy, mayo kind of cole slaw. if you don’t like mayo, this is not your kind of cole slaw. but if you do… give this a chance. plus it’s SUPER simple.
aunt leah’s cole slaw
- 1 c mayo
- 2 tbs sugar
- 1 tbs cider vinegar
- 6 whole green onions, chopped
- a good squirt yellow mustard
- juice of 1/2 -1 lemon
- a couple good dashes hot sauce (crystal, tabasco, etc)
- a good shake of tony’s
- 1 large bag or 2 small bags of cole slaw mix
- mix together everything except the cole slaw mix. put in the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight.
- add the cole slaw mix and serve.
see. SUPER simple.
hopefully you’ll get to bbq soon and try this…. it doesn’t look like our weather is going to allow that in the near future.
