I’m pretty sure I just toxified a detox salad in two easy steps:
1) added peanut butter
2) added peanuts.
It’s going to make us eat cabbage.
Over and over again.
And that, my friends, is a good thing.
Don’t be freaked out by the combo.
It’s spicy peanut-lime dressing on an Asian-type cabbage slaw.
It works, trust me, especially if you’re looking for a way to deep-clean your insides. . .
Speaking of cleaning insides, is that what you were laying awake thinking about last night?
You were awake, thinking?
For no good reason at all.
What was going through your mind?
I was laying on our couch thinking about how I love it.
The couch, I mean – not laying awake thinking about random useless things.
It was a hand-me-down from my husband’s parents’ best friends, (again. . . the couch).
And what the heck was poking me in the calf?
A piece of a granola bar?
Who knows. Tough to tell in the dark.
Ooo . . . speaking of that, let me find it. . . . Here it is.
Nope. I was wrong.
Two chocolate chips stuck together. . . . Thaaaaat makes more sense.
I heard the rain outside and remembered that the grill still sat uncovered after I cooked dinner last night. . . .
I spent a few minutes internally growling at the school uniform store for inconsistently sizing their shirts, thus requiring me to go back to the store for the third time this week tomorrow.
Goodbye simple Friday afternoon.
Because that’s what everyone could use, right?
A good cabbage-scrub?
It’s a great make-ahead for a barbecue side or for lunches throughout the week, and there is something irresistible about the tangy lime, spicy sriracha, and sweet, smooth peanut butter.
And the crunch! The crisp crunch of the cabbage and the soft crunch of the peanuts. . .
Next time you can’t sleep, just start thinking about Spicy Peanut Cabbage Slaw. . . .
