Summertime Fun!


The long-awaited summer sun has finally risen on us! Early morning light peaking through your bedroom curtains, the dedicated runners who keep up with the pace of their earphones, and the excited screams of kids as they splash into the pool.  Ah yes, summer.

Let’s focus in on the all-famous barbecue!  You can always be guaranteed an invitation to someone’s backyard barbecue. The question is, what should you bring? Before you hop over to the nearest Metro to pick up a dessert, may I interest you in a coleslaw recipe that will make you the life of the party? I’m telling you that this is an easy, creamy, mouthwatering recipe that you will learn to make from memory, which will come in handy as this is the one and only time I will share it! Lol.

Lisa’s Coleslaw

This is my contribution to your coleslaw fame! You can be sure that you will be invited to future barbecues because you supply the coleslaw. Summertime fun is here. Enjoy it!
