Boy, it's hot out!   Yeah, I know, what should expect now that's it is July.

We've been at or hoovering around 100 degrees this whole week.  When the temperatures rise my enthusiasm for cooking wanes (except for solar cooking which keeps the kitchen cool)   Instead opt for no cook/bake foods like salads and slaw.

Using the beautiful heads that Freedom Farmer S brought over I made a HUGE batch of coleslaw (mixed the shredded cabbage with some homegrown carrots and turnips) which I thought would last at least two meals.   Was I wrong!   The stuff was sooooooooo good, it really hit the spot on such a hot afternoon, we demolished the entire bowl in one sitting.

Hopefully there's more heads where that came from - hint, hint!  Going to experiment a bit, next time adding a bit of homegrown shredded apple!

  1. Sounds wonderful and I don't even like coleslaw (which might be a hanging offense here in the deep south).

  2. yummy! i have been craving crunchy cool foods too. i never thought to put turnips in, i must try.
    best wishes

  3. Would you be willing to share your recipe? I have a ton of turnips I need to use and this would be a great way to do it.


  4. How about a recipe for that slaw?

  5. I never have put shredded turnips in my slaw before. Interesting. I may just give it a try.
