I had a great week visiting with both of my older children and grandchildren this week. Our visit started out with a fun 2nd birthday party for an adorable little boy. He really enjoyed his Mickey Cake with all of the colored icings. We are so lucky to have Publix here in Florida. The make great kids birthday cakes at a great price.
His Dad did a great job of cutting the cake and serving all of the cousins, grandparents, friends, aunts, and uncles. He also was in charge of the grill for the hot dogs and hamburgers.
Yummy, Happy Birthday to Me!!
I pretty much got off easy. My only assignment was to prepare the Carolina Mustard Slaw for the dogs and burgers. I have several recipes, but chose this version, as I thought the children might like it. It has a little mayo and is not quite as strong as my other mustard slaw recipes.
My son in law is from Venezuela and grew up eating potato sticks on hot dogs. They were also a must.
We ate our share of potato sticks as children growing up in south Georgia and central Florida also. Good things have no boundaries.
Carolina Mustard Slaw - very easy
1 bag angel hair slaw mix
1/4 cup Duke's Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard
salt, pepper, and celery salt to taste
Mix the dressing - Mayonnaise, yellow mustard, and Dijon Mustard. Pour over slaw mix. Salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe is delicious on hot dogs, hamburgers, or barbecue sandwiches. I have even been known to eat it with fried catfish, even though I usually make a more mayonnaise based slaw for fish.
We enjoyed the slaw with hot dogs so much that I might be tempted to get this hot dog steamer for my older grandkids for Christmas. It is available at Amazon and shipping is free.
