Weirdly enough i never reallly liked coleslaw... for those of us in Malaysia, we are introduced to slaw by way of KFC. In Greece they dont serve slaw in KFC, they serve the set plate with regular salad with a vinegrette.

Anywho... i've made slaw now a coupla times due to the fact that i bought a big ol head of cabbage, used 20% of it in a chicken soup and ... well, waste not want not and what else does one do with cabbage. Made it once and the boy loved it, so what the heck.

Here is my recipe. Serves 3-4 depending on serving size.
3 cups finely chopped white cabbage
1 cup finely shredded carrot
1 small finely chopped red onion
throw them all into a bowl.
for the dressing (mix the following well):
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic/cider vinegar
3 tbsp mayo/ salad cream/ miracle whip
half tsp mustard (optional)
1 tsp sugar
salt & black pepper
5 tbsp fresh milk

mix the veggies and dressing well, and let it sit in the fridge for a bit before serving. Mix again before serving. I throw in some olives when serving, just for an extra bite.

Fixture fix

Looks like my taste is leaning toward more of simple classic industrial fluid shapes.
These gems were taken off
How much would YOU pay from a pendant ceiling light fixture...?
I think i would be willing to pay about 169 Euro for something i really really liked.
And only pay more if its something of a collectors item, antique or perhaps something that i would not get bored with after 10 years, that said... i wouldn't pay more than 399 euros for even that. :)
