    LMAO!! Thank you for the pick me up! You can also just soak the cabbage in hot water to make the leave pliable, you know just for future refernce. Cole slaw is hard to make. It takes lots of time to shread the cabbage, carrots, and all the other stuff into it, mix in slaw dressing etc. Make sweet slaw instead. Shread cabbage, mix in olive oil, dash of salt (to taste) and light Italian seasonings (basil and rosemary work the best.) Use it to top Italian sausages from the grill, brats, or club sandwiches.
    Remember the sceene on Christmas Story, where Andy doesn’t want to eat his beef, red cabbage and mash potatoes? That little song,” Meatloaf, beatloaf, I hate meatloaf” ran through my head as soon as you mentioned fighting with the cabbage.

    I too tend to “cook” things that end up resembling something out of this world! I’m glad I’m not the only one. Tell me more about this CSA program? I’m sorta kinda in your neck of the woods and am interested in receiving local produce! Thanks!!

    @Gina, LOL, you cook!!! I make cole slaw by cutting up a cabbage and putting dressing on it :) Biggest compliment? Once Junior said it was almost as good as KFC. High praise, indeed. I am going to try the sweet slaw though. It sounds fabulous and probably something I can do. Love A Christmas Story!

    @Lizzard, I use Timptations ( They have various pickup spots throughout South Valley (including some big companies in SJ). I love them. In the summer, their pluots cannot be beat and all the produce is local.
