I remarked in a recent discussion about the bland potato salad. Today we had coleslaw and it had green flecks in it and it was colorful and truly delicious the way good coleslaw should be. Some savvy cook had added some flavor to it and it was just the way good coleslaw should be. Crisp and tangy and full of flavor.We had sweet and sour meatballs in a fruity sauce and they really were superb. I usually by pass them as I' m not fond of meat balls.But these were truly tasty.Mixed veggies with mostly lima beans was a great addition too. The dessert again a small piece of white cake with a raspberry sauce..They are doing something too which the other cooks did not do. They make the plates of food look appetizing and to me thats a plus.

I always check the back of the cans of spices when I get them. I am surprised sometimes at the advice they give for spices that can be added to some dishes.

@Hatley Yeah, I feel sorry for my daughter's dad. He was the guinea pig on my first tries. I had a good basis of learning but not much experience. And, I like it to have zazz. LOL
