Stilton Cheese Slaw

Oooh a guilty pleasure after a rotten day.  Cheese coleslaw, two evils in one.  I have to admit, I forgot to buy Stilton so I used Red Leicester instead.  It is GOOD.  Even though I only made half the recipe there is tonnes left so I shall take it to Heather’s tomorrow for cocoa night.  She is working like a dog and we are planning an early night with a hot chocolate rather than our usual 20 pints of Stella and a late one.

I had a good old restorative cry in the pub with a pint of beer at lunchtime.  Good job I have a favourite watering hole that is dark and gloomy inside.  I’m sure I looked like I’d been through the wringer when I got back to work but nobody said anything.  Thank God for Vic.  He phoned in the afternoon and gave me a really good pep talk.  I felt a whole lot better.  And now even better after cheese slaw.

To lighten the mood, here is a picture of the squirrel I watched balanced on the very highest branches of the tree outside my 4th floor kitchen window on Saturday as I ate my lunch.  He’s a bit camouflaged and he looked much closer in real life.  I decided to call him Tony.  What a gymnast!

    Oh I do hope you are OK. When I read about you alone in the pub, I just wanted to rush over and give you the biggest hug. I hope you are feeling better now–you are very wonderful indeed and the thought of you feeling sad just breaks my heart.

  2. Aw, thanks sweetie pie. I shall wallow in the idea of a virtual hug from NYC. Feeling better now, just a little emotional blip!

    Sending you a virtual hug from Kansas, as well! Tony is the cutest. My husband loves them and even bought a stuffed one at the Vaux-le-Vicomte gift shop. Squirrels in Europe are so tiny! I remember wondering why they were half the size of American ones, but then I remembered that European people are half the size of Americans, too! 😉

    I love the idea of a cocoa night. I might steal it.
