I’m finally switched over to WordPress.org! The design is still a work in progress, so you may see some subtle changes over the next few weeks. Hopefully it’s not distracting!
This past weekend we had some friends visiting for a mini BBQ, without the grilling (our grill was destroyed during Sandy, R.I.P.). Instead, we took it easy and made pulled pork sandwiches in the crock pot and had a few simple apps.
The pulled pork turned out amazing. Our secret was adding a can of beer to the crock pot.
Kiley made our new favorite picnic side dish – Broccoli Slaw. It got rave reviews at our last party, and once again, everyone was complimenting. So here, it is – our not-so-secret recipe.
If you’re making this for a party, it’s probably best to double the recipe. But the ingredients are simple: broccoli slaw (from the produce section), purple onion, celery, ramen noodles, and sunflower seeds.
Chop everything up real small, crumple the ramen noodles, and add the dressing (oil, white vinegar, sugar, and ramen flavor packets).
It’s best made the night before so that the noodles have time to absorb all the liquids.
- 2/3 cup veg. oil
- 1/3 cup white vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 pkg. ramen chicken flavor noodles
- 1 pkg. broccoli slaw
- 1 small purple onion, minced
- 2 small stalks celery, chopped
Crunch uncooked noodles. Mix liquids and add flavor packets. Mix ing. and add liquids. Chill overnight.
