I had many comments about the chalkboard and about the Crazy Slaw.
Today you get both!
I had this old frame that somehow survived our house fire over a decade ago.
Couldn't let go of it actually.
You know, someday...
And being active in blogland I've seen so many cute chalkboards and thought that I, too needed one.
Friend cut the luan and I sprayed it with the chalkboard paint.
Popped it into the frame.
Secured it with tiny nails.
Attached picture hangers to the backside.
Hung it on the hook.
Do only use the soft chalk.
Do rub chalk all over the chalkboard as specified by the paint and rub it off.
It's hanging on a command strip.
The frame was a silver finish originally.
The heat from the fire melted off the finish making it look perfectly shabby!
And the other comments hinged on Crazy Slaw.
I've been married 37 years and have had this slaw every New Year's day since day 2 of our marriage!
(we married December 30, 1974)
My mother in law made this, and now I make it every year.
1 head cabbage, thinly sliced
2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
3 grated carrots
1/2 cup sugar
Mix and set aside.
1 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
Heat vinegar and add sugar to dissolve. Mix in remaining ingredients thoroughly and pour over cabbage mix. Refrigerate overnight.
Enjoy!! I'll be linking up to Design's by Gollum, Foodie Friday - cya there...
