The Attempt at Coleslaw

Good morning, everyone! Today I’m writing about my attempt at making coleslaw for my pulled chicken sandwiches. We had never had the sandwiches with coleslaw, but the thought of the possibility was always there.

Naturally, I searched Pinterest and found what I was searching for.

This is the recipe I followed:

– 1 bag classic coleslaw (I used 1/2 of a head of cabbage and shredded carrots)
– 1 cup mayonnaise
– 1/3 cup sugar
– 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon pepper
– 1/4 teaspoon celery seed (we did not add this, as Hubby is allergic to celery)
In retrospect, I realize that I did not chop the cabbage fine enough. It still turned out tasty, but next time I’m definitely chopping it finer, or perhaps shredding it, as well.

You will probably notice the hand in this photo. It was my 4 year old son asking “What are you doing with this stuff?” He didn’t give me the chance to explain, he just ran back to the living room.
These are the directions:
1. Mix ingredients. Ta da!

*The recipe called for the mixture to be refrigerated for several hours before serving, but I did not have the luxury of time, nor had I given this any forethought, so I served it right away.
This is when I made my sandwiches and added the coleslaw inside. I am not ordinarily a coleslaw ‘person’, but when it came to this particular meal, I greatly enjoyed the crunch and fresh taste of the coleslaw with the savoury pulled chicken. This was a hit!

Thank you so much for reading! Stay tuned for my upcoming blog that looks at how I write. Happy Wednesday!

The Left-Over Turkey Sandwich

One of my favourite things about turkey or chicken left-overs is what I can make with them.

In my opinion, the very best thing (and the most delicious) to make are turkey sandwiches. They are also very easy to make.


– Left-over turkey or chicken
– Gravy (left over from the turkey or freshly made from the chicken)
– Bread
– Salt
– Pepper
– Margarine/butter


1. Slice/separate small pieces of turkey

2. Toast bread then butter.

3. Put turkey on buttered bread and add salt and pepper.


4. Close sandwich and top with hot gravy.
