Mr. Mike and I took our first two-wheeled trip of the year over Labor Day weekend. We rode part of the Natchez Trace and camped at Grand Gulf Military Park. Yes, camping on a battleground site. It is well maintained for campers. Plus, they don’t care if you drink PBR. The Grand Gulf cemetery is part of the park. It is one of the spookiest places I’ve visited, even in daylight.

After you peruse and are waiting on your ‘que (pulled pork) to finish, make this coleslaw. It is similar to the KFC coleslaw. Recipe is from Allrecipes.com

Aw-Some Cole Slaw
1/3 cup mayonnaise
3 Tablespoons sugar (use less if you don’t like sweet slaw)
2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons milk
1 Tablespoon and 2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
6 1/3 cups shredded cabbage
1/3 cup grated carrots
2 Tablespoons minced sweet onion (like Vidalia)

Whisk together the seasonings and liquids in a large bowl. Have your veggies ready to add, because the dressing will curdle if it sits more than a few minutes without the vegetables. Toss the cabbage, carrots, and onions into the dressing and mix well. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving or overnight. Serves 8.

Have a great scroungy week!

Get a Better Beer Belly from Eating a Placenta then Swallowing a Tapeworm to Avoid the Nutritional Bogeyman and Food Scrounge News

The past two weeks have been intense – depositions, constructing my best legal argument, plus training for a new job! More on the legal cases when they are resolved. The new lunch lady job is going well. The crew (half are new employees) works well together, so it bodes well for the school year. I’m not a spring chicken, so all this mental and physical stress has me feeling like I live at the funny farm. Ever feel like that? Click on the Food Scrounge News tab for the latest.

It will be an interesting change from the elementary school. So far I’ve heard the marching band percussion section practice “Stairway to Heaven” in the dining room while we cleaned the kitchen. However, my other work continues. Now you can talk to the Scroungelady about your food/recipe concerns. I specialize in nutrition analysis for your recipes. Want to know how many calories are really in that BBQ pulled pork? Only you and I will know.
