Truly Awesome

There is something truly awesome about being able to realize a child's request for 'Coleslaw with Almonds' by heading out to the winter garden after an emotionally exhausting day, and picking a head of savoy cabbage, three scallions, one carrot.  Combining those vegetables with some juicy Cara Cara oranges, and a few pantry staples: rice vinegar, toasted almonds and sesame seeds, toasted sesame oil, sugar, tamari, light miso and some grated ginger.  The look of divine joy on her face as she consumed her wish, was just that...  truly awesome. 

We enjoyed this coleslaw with some Thanksgiving turkey soup with whole wheat egg noodles from the deep freeze.  Exactly what I had intended frozen soup for, an easy healthful meal on a busy day.
