I grew up in a house of coleslaw lovers.
I now live in a house of coleslaw haters.
This makes enjoying coleslaw a little difficult given that no one else will eat it if I make it.
And I mean no one.
Not even a bite to see if they might like it.
They don’t like it at picnics, with fried chicken or barbecue or, even worse, on pulled pork sandwiches. I mean…the humanity!?!
That doesn’t stop me from making it, ordering it or loving it, though. No, sir.
I eat it at picnics, with fried chicken AND barbecue and, best of all, on pulled pork sandwiches.
