Now and again I get a touch of writer's block. Some days the blog ideas flow like water from the faucet and others, it's a dry well. This week I was trying to come up with a grand idea and after I read fellow blogger Cookiecrumb's post I knew I had it. She had concocted a wonderful coleslaw and another blogger Zoomie commented that she makes slaw dogs. That's where this all began. I decided to issue a slaw throwdown like Bobby Flay. A short trip to the supermarket later I prepared my slaw dogs. They are very tasty and really inexpensive. I used Foster Farm's Turkey Franks because they had won a Chronicle taster's choice and were on sale at Lucky's for $1.79.
The so called recipes:
Easy Money here. I used Carroll Shelby's Chili Kit. Full disclosure insists that I mention I added a few teaspoons of Rancho Gordo Chile Powder and twice the amount water. Simmer until you get a thick soup-like consistency.
Sous chef April ran a half of a large head of cabbage and a medium carrot through the slicing blade of our KitchenAid food processor. She has much more patience with the processor than I. To the cabbage mix I added two big old soup spoons of Best Foods Mayo, a couple of shakes of seasoned rice wine vinegar followed by random shakes of celery salt and fresh ground black pepper.
OK, Cookiecrumb are you ready to throw down one of these slaw dogs?
