Friday Finds

I guess this is going to be Friday Finds on Saturday.  I had an extra day off this week and totally thought yesterday was Thursday all day.  It wasn't until I got home from grocery shopping after work last night that I realized it was Friday.

I did want to share a few side dish recipes that I want to try soon.

A Pinch of Joy

I really like this very easy recipe for coleslaw dressing.  I love coleslaw, hubby will eat it but doesn't like it all that much.  I think this dressing would be great to mix up and use on an individual serving of coleslaw so I could use it as I needed it.  I also like that low fat mayo and sugar substitute can be used if desired.

Bookcase Foodie

Probably can't get these by hubby since they have cooked cabbage and carrot in them.  However, I love the individual serving idea and think I will make these just for me.  I can take one for my lunch at work and just warm it up.  This also looks like a good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.  I will have to look for the potato starch.  I wonder what would happen if flour was used instead.

Pocket Change Gourmet

Love deviled eggs, love bacon, love cheese.  What more can I say?  I will certainly be making these very soon.

Pocket Change Gourmet

I always have cans of these little oranges in my pantry, but I have never thought to feature them in a salad like this with lettuce and celery.  The caramelized almonds are probably what really makes this.

The Traveling Spoon

OK, you could put bacon and pecans in just about anything, and I would eat it.  Love that this is a dish that can be whipped up with ingredients that I keep on hand all the time and can pretty much be put together at the last minute.

$5 Dinners

I have never roasted red cabbage, and hubby would definitely not eat this, but I am going to make this anyway.  I think this looks so pretty and add a color to the meal that is usually not there.

Well, that is my very late list for this week.  I am anxious to see what other bloggers have found.

As always, the photos were taken by and are the property of the owners of the respective blogs represented.

  5. The Potato Cakes & Roasted Cabbage look yummy! My husband wouldn't touch them either as he "thinks" he doesn't like cabbage (I am convinced he'd change his mind if he tried it in a good recipe :)

    Oh well, more for me! :)

    Visiting from Finding Joy In My Kitchen & wishing you a very Happy Easter!

    P.S I read cookbooks like novels, too! :)
