What an awesome date; 7-7-07. I mentioned to my DH that we had to do something memorable today because of the date. We found a really neat new biking trail that is 7 miles long, paved, and goes along a creek. We can hook up the bike trailer, get some exercise, and look for wildlife along the way. We say a badger, bunny rabbits, birds, and a beaver. Poor Zelda got something in her eye about half way into the ride and was crying from the trailer, "See if Mommy can stop, I have something in my eye." We got to a clearing and couldn't see anything in her eye; but it was red and irritated. DH told her to just keep blinking and it would wash out anything that was in there. By the time we rode back near the car her eye was feeling better and she wanted to play at the park. She is quite the inquisitive little individual. For dinner I made Coleslaw and she asked me what it was. Apparently I have never had her try it all the other times I have made it. I told her the name and she asked me, "Cole slop?" O.K., it did look a little like Cole slop but I assure you it was Coleslaw. Here is the recipe, I found it in the newspaper:
Kentucky Fried Chicken's Coleslaw
1 head of cabbage; finely chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup miracle whip
2 tbs white vinegar
2 tbs vegetable oil
1/4 cup grated carrots
2 tbs diced onion
Mix onion, sugar, salt, sour cream, miracle whip and vegtable oil together to make a dressing. Mix with cabbage and carrots. Chill and enjoy.

I really enjoy reading your blog. It's fun to hear about your adventures! Zelda sounds so cute, and so does Lu Lu. I liked her word for coleslaw - my girls would agree it looks like slop! Thanks for sharing your recipies.

I can be a voice for the delicious slop! I had her bring it for my birthday party and it was delicious!

There was a little girl on our news and she was turning 7 on that day. She must be lucky. Maybe I could go rub her head or something!
