Apple Slaw with Cilantro Recipe

I have to say I like my newly invented Apple Slaw recipe.  I'm posting it because I think it is delicious, and worth making!

(Note, I don't really measure when I cook, so this is all approximate.  Adjust it to fit your tastes.)

Stir up the following dressing in a bowl:
Juice of 2 Limes
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 cup of loosely packed chopped Cilantro Leaves
Dash of Cayenne Pepper
Dash of Black Pepper

Chop 5-6 yellow &/or green apples into the size of matchsticks, leave the skin on the apples.  Mix apples and the dressing together.

If you would like, for a punch of color, add in some pomegranate seeds.

Keep refrigerated.  This salad is very cool and refreshing.  I think it would be delicious for a summer bbq, but currently I'm enjoying this in the winter!

After Dinner Bad Guys

The kids turned 5 last month, and I have to say, this is a fun age.

Tonight's story:
Adlyn didn't eat much for dinner tonight, and while cleaning up, I noticed she was looking in the fridge.

Anne:  Adlyn, are you looking for something to eat?
Adlyn:  (as she smiled) No, I'm just checking to see if there are any bad guys in the fridge.

Her response was too cute, I couldn't quite go into a lecture about why she should have had dinner.
