what i am eating

Typically I think of coleslaw as a summer BBQ side dish.  But, it is something I have been eating a lot more of recently.  Why?  Well, because cabbage, carrots and onions are all fall season, and storage crops.  I absolutely love coleslaw, I know not everyone does, but I do.  I especially love spicy coleslaw.

This is one that my sister-in-law wrote about a long time ago on her blog, spicy coleslaw.  It uses chipotle in adobo – one of my favorite spicy seasonings!  My take was a bit different, mainly because I cannot follow a recipe.  I finely shredded a large head of cabbage, a couple carrots, and finely sliced an onion (yes a whole onion – we like onion here!).  I sprinkled it all with a bit of sea salt.  Then I mixed up equal parts mayo and sour cream (I think probably ¼ cup each) added a bit of lemon juice, maybe 2 teaspoons, a couple chopped garlic cloves and one finely chopped chipotle in adobo.  I mixed that all together and then added a bit of milk to thin it out.  Then I poured the dressing over the shredded veggies, and voila! coleslaw.  It was amazingly delicious.  While most treat it as a side dish, I ate it as my lunch, sharing some with the kiddos, who seem to love anything that is mixed with mayonnaise.

Now for my favorites from last week:
I can’t wait to see what everyone else is eating!  Please link up your recipes and other food related posts below!
