Peanut Sesame Ginger Slaw April 22, 2013

Jamie says: Yesterday was the day- I hosted my Pool Party Benefit Dinner for the March of Dimes! It was awesome!

Seventeen friends came out for some food, fun, and music. It was a nice group with friends from work, running club, high school, college, my apartment complex, and beyond.

Together, we raised $310 for the March of Dimes. With family donations, I am now at a total of $380!

If anyone feels the call to donate, I’m happily accepting donations at my site is:

Thank you for your support. 🙂

Peanut Sesame Ginger Slaw

Friends graciously brought dishes to share. I made slow-cooked BBQ pork, whole grain brown rice, cumin cilantro black beans, and- my favorite- a new Peanut Sesame Ginger Slaw! I also bought Publix Bakery onion dinner rolls and Publix Bakery 100% whole wheat mountain bread.

Perfect for a picnic- or a party!

The ginger slaw was wicked good. It was so flavorful with that sweet and salty combo and had lots of crunch!
