Holiday meals on the road can be pretty lonely. This year, thanks to the good folks at Braunig Lake RV Resort in San Antonio, we spent it with about 60 other fulltiming “orphans.”. Braunig has a tradition of hosting a turkey dinner for residents – they provide the turkey, potatoes and stuffing, and the guests bring a dish to share.
As with all potlucks, the array of dishes was amazing. All the usual suspects, plus some unexpected additions, like bacon-wrapped asparagus bundles. The food was so good, we forgot to take pictures of it! I brought cranberry applesauce, and a bowl of bacon coleslaw.
The recipe is simple – make coleslaw the way you prefer, then add in thinly sliced green pepper and thinly sliced green onion and crispy crumbled bacon. I used two bags of shredded cabbage, 1 medium bell pepper, three green onions, and half a cup of crumbled bacon. I prefer to use sweet and sour dressing, but couldn’t find any (What the heck Texas?) so I used a jar of Whitehouse Coleslaw dressing.
Sat with two lovely couples from opposite ends of Canada. We had lots of shared interests, so conversation was lively. We ended up staying two hours, then left with a package of leftovers. A good day.
