About 1 ½ years ago I started this blog using blogger.com software. I had trouble trying to create the look and fluidity that I wanted within the website. After a couple tries I put it on the back burner. Now, after researching and finding WordPress.com software I am once again embarking on this adventure! I am so excited about blogging and sharing a daily scripture, a favorite recipe, and of course, a few ramblings.
Please join me as often as you can, write comments whenever you are so inclined, and add your email address so you can be notified whenever a new recipe or blog is published!
Since it is the beginning of the summer food season I thought I would start with a recipe we just love! It is a delightful side dish, or you can throw in some cooked chicken and it becomes “dinner!”
1 package broccoli cole slaw or regular cole slaw
- 2 packages oriental flavor Ramen noodles, broken up
- 1 cup chopped green onions
- 2/3 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
- ½ cup slivered almonds, toasted
- 2 oriental flavor Ramen noodle seasoning packets
- ½ cup sugar
- 1/3 cup rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- ¼ cup sesame oil
- ½ cup vegetable oil
In a large bowl, combine slaw and next 4 ingredients, stirring well. Cover and refrigerate overnight, stir occasionally.
In a small bowl, combine seasoning packets, sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. Whisk until sugar dissolves.
While whisking, gradually add the oils until well combined.
When ready to serve, bring slaw to room temperature for 15 minutes. Add dressing and stir to evenly coat. Serves 4-6.
My favorite variations: Any are very good!
- Add 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
- Substitute 8 cups spinach for the cole slaw
- Can substitute peanut oil for the vegetable oil
