I love this recipe because its healthier than the mayo version and its great for outdoor events when it is hot because it doesnt need to be kept on ice.
I prepared this for the Nappturals in the City event I attended today in Virginia Beach, VA. I got lots of good reviews so I hope you try it. I made some changes from the original recipe but put the original items in parenthesis.
What You Need
2lbs of tri-color coleslae mix
1/2 cup agave nectar (or 1 cup sugar)
1 cup white wine vinegar
3/4 cup grapeseed oil (or canola)
2 tsp celery seed
1 tsp ground mustard
What You’ll Do
Put coleslaw mix in a large bowl. Heat all other ingredients except the agave nectar (or sugar) in a small saucepan until just boiling. Remove from heat; add nectar or sugar to saucepan and stir a few times. Then pour mixture over coleslaw mix; toss and refrigerate. Toss every hour or so. This needs to be refrigerated at least 2 hours before serving.
Many of us take for granted the fact that we have running, hot water. I know I did, that is until this week. For reasons beyond our control that will remain unsaid in this blog post (side eye), the gas was turned off in the home that we rent. So since Tuesday, we have had no gas to heat the hot water tank. I never thought this would happen, and regret the fact that I had blown off the chance to wash my hair on Tuesday while there was still hot water in the tank.
My scalp has literally been on fire these last few days. Yes, I’ve been “washing up” with water warmed up on the stove (fortunately we have an electric stove) – just in case you were wondering. But if you are natural, and your hair is BSL – you know that washing your hair is NOT going to happen by using water in a basin. It just isn’t.
Today is Saturday, and the gas is just being turned back on today. FINALLY I am able to wash my hair. I’ve never been so excited about having running hot water. So as I’m sitting under the dryer enjoying some much need deep conditioning, I just wanted to share this with my readers. I learned the whole “never put off until tomorrow what you can do today” lesson the hard way. Never EVER pass up a chance to wash your hair. You never know when you might not have running hot water.
Don’t let it happen to you!
Thanks to Groupon.com, my husband and I enjoyed a fine brunch at Press 626 today. This cafe and wine bar may be small but it packs a flavorable punch! Located in the historic Ghent area of Norfolk, VA, it is a great place to visit for lunch with co-workers, dinner with the girls, or brunch with your significant other. And I just love how they use olf wine bottles instead of pitchers for water. Super cute!
The brunch menu selections were all priced around $10.95, with $3 brunch drink specials. And by drinks I mean DRINKS. I chose shrimp & grits (pear-rosemary shrimp with cheesy grits) with fresh fruit. The hubster chose one of the two chef’s special omelets (omelet stuffed with squash, zucchini, portabello mushrooms, onions, and feta cheese with a side of home fries). I had mimosas and he had poinsettas. Then he had strawberry bread pudding and I had a champagne cupcake with blackberries and lemon chaffon icing.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. This is definitely a spot that you will find me at in the future for sure. For more information on Press 626, check out their website www.press626.com.
Week 3+4 Results: Up 3 pounds & 1/2 inch lost at the waist.
Well it only took 2 weeks to gain back the 3lbs I lost in week 2. And somehown I am down another 1/2 inch in the waist. I must confess – I did not do all 5 days of cardio during week 3 before the 5k, and I only did one day of cardio during week 4 (2 hours of cardio dance at the gym – woohoo!). And I had lots of sweets this week (TOM).
So this week coming up, back to basics. 5 days of cardio and doubling up on the strength training by doing the Spark People videos twice each day. Hopefully I can drop the 3lbs I picked up over the last 2 weeks.
And here’s my finish line clip from the 5k! I have on a teal top and a bandana.
This look was inspired by a navy blue and baby blue pin-strip dress that I was wearing yesterday.
