Coleslaw and Football

Posted Nov 02 2011 12:17am

Those two words pretty much sum up what’s been going on around here lately.

Corey absolutely loves the fact that he can sit in front of the TV on the weekends and watch football for about 9 hours straight- which is exactly what we (<-how did I get roped into that?!) did this passed weekend.

Bella, however, finds it to be extremely boring.

Monday night was a special football occasion, because we actually drove to Jacksonville to watch our friend, Jah , and the Baltimore Ravens play against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

They lost, but it was still fun to be there!

The half-time light show was pretty entertaining- for a few minutes, at least.

We joked that it reminded us of something that would have been really cool and exciting in the 90′s.

I snacked on some pulled pork while we watched the game.

Speaking of pulled pork- we threw a little cookout last week with Ashley and Buxton and watched the UCF game at our house.  We put together a pretty nice spread- marinated beef kabobs, toasted buns, my slowcooker BBQ pulled chicken , mac and cheese, corn muffins, and coleslaw.

Is it just me, or do pulled pork/chicken and coleslaw go together like peanut butter and jelly?  The problem with coleslaw is that it can sometimes be drenched in mayo and sugar, making it an unhealthy choice.  My recipe, however, turned out light and delicious.

Light Coleslaw

Servings: 4-6


1 bag pre-shredded cole slaw

2 tablespoons Light Mayo (I used mayo made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

1/2 onion, finely grated

2 tablespoons Light Sour Cream

1/2 tablespoon Splenda for Baking

2 tablespoons White Vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


In the bottom of a large bowl, add the onion, mayo, sour cream, vinegar, Splenda, salt and pepper and whisk together until well combined.  Add the bag of cole slaw and toss everything together until the slaw is coated with the dressing.  Allow to refrigerate for one hour before serving.

light coleslaw

I had a little bit of everything and served it all on top of a bed of spring mix.

Yep, even the mac and cheese.  You didn’t really think I’d turn that down, did you?

What is your favorite side dish for BBQ meals?
