Dinner Tonight: "I hab a code" edition

Over here at the Messy kitchen we're suffering from a bout of winter colds in the middle of the Christmas performance season. Lovely.
In an attempt to seem like I really have things together (It's a lie, I don't), I'm launching a new series of "Dinner Tonight" posts. I'll be linking to simple recipes and posting a few tips and tricks of my own to show what we eat on a regular basis when we're not dolling the food up all pretty for a blog post.
So, without further ado... what we had for dinner!

The soup is Tortellini in Brodo from the Tasty Kitchen archives... a yummy, quick, and filling alternative to a from-scratch chicken-noodle soup. For veggies, we had a simple cabbage salad, as we were out of lettuce.

Approximate Coleslaw

  • 1/4 head of cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 1-2 stalks celery
  • 1/4 medium onion
  • few sprigs fresh parsley, minced
  • small clove garlic, minced
  • drizzle olive oil
  • splash red wine vinegar
  • large-ish spoonful mayonnaise
  • black pepper, oregano, and other spices to taste

Thinly slice the cabbage, celery, and onion. Grate the carrot with the large side of a cheese grater. In a medium bowl, combine the cabbage, celery, carrot, onion, garlic, and parsley. Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar and toss to coat. Add a spoonful of mayonnaise and stir until everything is evenly coated. Season with spices as desired.
