best summer dinners #2
The dinner was perfect because we had some staples: coleslaw, cucumber salad, burger fixings and beer, and then wound up with a variety of choices with what everyone brought: B1 & B2 had the burgers, I brought hot dogs, TSO and Brett brought venison pork sausage and lamb sausage, RugbyGirl brought Farm steaks. And the grilled corn--AMAZING!
It felt nice to sit around and talk and laugh. If the worst complaints of a summer night are that mosquitoes were present or that the beer wouldn't stay cold enough long enough, it's a good night.
Life is good.
My simple Summer Coleslaw:
- Wash and thinly slice 1 head of cabbage (I love it thinly shaved)
- Wash, peel and shred 2 carrots
- Toast sesame seeds
- Toss above ingredients with soy sauce, lemon juice, cider vinegar (I used red wine vinegar since B1 didn't have cider vinegar), salt, pepper and dill (do all to taste)
- Also great in this coleslaw are thinly sliced red onions or grated turnips, or horseradish
