Slap Happy Slaw

Another crazy day.  crazy My arms were flying from one end of the desk to another. octopus

I did more up-and-downs from my chair today than I ever do of any exercise repetitions.  The hours flew by, not leaving enough time to get everything done.  I’m the type of person who is only comfortable if I am one step ahead of the game.  Great example:  Today, after work, I began drafting the blog for Thursday.   That “trying to get ahead” resulted in a major FAUX PAS.  You see I’ve started using Windows Live Writer.  The program is great but I’m still not sure how it all works.  After I finished an initial draft, I thought I saved it to my blog site, but instead it POSTED IT!  How awful!  That’s like getting caught with your pants down!  AND… it immediately uploaded to Face book which I didn’t discover until 15 minutes later.  AH!  So much for getting a step ahead.

The result of all that was a late dinner.  As a side dish, I came up with this tasty recipe to use up some green cabbage and some yogurt. 

Heated Cabbage Slaw


  • 1/3 cup Plain Greek yogurt – low fat
  • 1 TBS Rose’s Lime Juice
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Epazote
  • 1 tsp Pure Cane Sugar (or more if you want – taste first)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 TBS olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped Green Cabbage
  • 1/4 chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 chopped red pepper
  • 2 sliced radishes
  • 2 crushed sun dried tomatoes

Mix the yogurt, lime, garlic, epazote, sugar, salt and pepper and set aside.

Heat the olive oil over medium heat and sauté the green cabbage, peppers, radish and tomatoes for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low for 8 minutes. Stir on occasion to cook evenly. 


Remove from heat and add the yogurt dressing.  A great side!


Ted was doing some major site fixing for me tonight. So good of him.  He is unbelievably patient when it comes to dealing with frustrating situations.  Me…my attitude is 2 strikes – I’m DONE!  

Exercise today was lower body and abs.  I warmed up with 20 minutes of ET.  Shane and I jogged 3 1/2 miles.  Even though there was the faint essence of skunk in the air, no little stinker was seen.  We were looking. I don’t want to surprise them any more than I want them to surprise me. 

Do you have a favorite slaw recipe?
