Thank you!

Our American Flatbread fundraiser was amazing. My family was one of the first to arrive and we could have stayed all night! Thank you to everyone who came out to support us and our great program. We sure have alot of friends and fans! It was incredible to connect with so many folks who love BCS and have been a part of the community in one way or another over the past 26 years!

asian slaw
we are crazy for cole slaw this summer, and a few weeks ago I tried a new version of the red cabbage and carrot one we've been loving the most. I've had lots of requests so I'm (finally) posting the recipe here..

Serves 6-8

1 smallish head of red cabbage, shredded or chopped well
1 smallish head of green cabbage - napa would be really good
1/2 of one red onion diced small
6 or 7 medium sized carrots shredded or chopped into small, thin pieces
that's it for the veggies!

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sesame oil
1 Tbsp finely shredded ginger
1/2 tsp tamari or soy sauce
whisk everything together!
pour it over the veggies and toss!
add black pepper to taste!

It's really good and if you can entice the kids to try it on the merits of its cool appearance, they will quite likely enjoy it and come back for more.

homemade croutons

The other day my friend and colleague Jackie brought me a beautiful loaf of bread that was just a little to hard for slicing and suggested I cut it up and make croutons. Neither one of us had ever done it, but she was sure that tossing them around in a little olive oil in a skillet would do the trick. So I did just that, along with some garlic powder and salt and pepper and oregano, and they came out DELICIOUS!! The best part.... the kids were picking them out of the salad bowl.
Hooray for new salad discoveries!

Happy Summer!
