Pasta 47: Asian Cole Slaw

May 11, 2011

I agreed to go to dinner with my parents on the condition that I MUST cook a recipe. I’m getting behind again after finally catching up. We shall overcome.

After playing with my nephew outside, discovering the baby birds in the front yard and feeding Popsicles to the puppies, I realized that I needed to get in the kitchen.

This recipe is incredibly easy, so I didn’t look at the recipe closely. Which led to the following:

Me: How many sunflower seeds do I need?

Mom: Did you look at the recipe?

Me: Oh.

Mom: That might help.

Me: What kind of oil am I supposed to use?

Mom: Look at the recipe.

Me: Ok. Yes.

Two minute later.

Me: White vinegar?

Stef: LOOK AT THE RECIPE. Seriously.

Me: yes. Great idea.

Mom: did you put the flavoring in the dressing?

Me: (frantically looking at the recipe)

Mom: I’m going outside.

Regardless of my my lack of attention, the slaw was perfect, and so was the weather and the family time.

Lessons learned:

1. Do I have to say it?

2. Time to catch up on my recipes.

On to the next one.

    So many comments about the above pictures. Love the one of the pup, popsicle and Cale. And your dog looks like she has no arms. I’ll stop there.
