This weekend we enjoyed a neighborhood get-together. There were a lot of people!

The menu was barbecue. I helped with the cole slaw.

I had no idea cabbage was so much fun!

It's fun to really get your hands in there! I love home made slaw. The variations are endless.

My first job in high school was in a local deli. When we made cole slaw, we'd use the deli slicer to shred an entire case of cabbages. We would take turns so nobody got "slicer's elbow". We would then throw the shredded cabbage into a vat of sugared brine and let it marinate in the walk-in fridge.

Whenever we needed to replace the cole slaw in the deli case, we'd get the vat of marinating cabbage out of the fridge and mix it with some shredded carrot and some mayo- not too much.

It was quite the production!
