Jenny is in perpetual search for easy, weeknight recipes to attempt to feed her family. When they balk, she just eats more.

Today: A slaw for when slaw for dinner is appropriate.


Tahini Sumac Slaw

Five things that happen when your kids go to camp for the summer:

1. You don't do laundry for days. 

2. The dog begins to sleep with you, and if you're especially lucky, pees on your blankets. 

3. You see movies involving Sandra Bullock. 

4. You throw away many things that might belong to others, if others had bothered to put them away before fleeing the premises. 

5. You eat slaw for dinner. Specifically Tahini Sumac Slaw. Please buy sumac for this, as it makes it special. I don't care if you buy pre-shredded cabbage. Be sure to mix that dressing up nicely, for consistency. Of course there will be no use of pomegranate seeds.
