Semi-homemade BBQ 'Beef' and Creamy Coleslaw Sandwich

Being a mom to a 5 year old, a 2 year old and a 2 month old, there are days I rely on the talents of others and the products they sell to make my family dinner.  On these particular days I make semi-homemade meals, and boy am I glad for the help!  My husband loves BBQ, so I came up with this easy, quick, semi-homemade version of a BBQ and coleslaw sandwich.  The best part?  The prep time is about 15 minutes!


1 package shredded coleslaw and carrots
1 cup Follow Your Heart Vegenaise
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon almond milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon celery seed

1.  Whisk all ingredients, except the coleslaw and carrots.
2.  In a large bowl top the coleslaw and carrots with the dressing and toss until well coated.
3.  Set aside.

BBQ 'Beefless Tips'

1 package of 'gardein home style beefless tips'
Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil

1.  Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat.
2.  Add 'beefless tips' and cook until heated through.
3.  Remove from heat and roughly chop.
4.  Place 'beefless tips' back in skillet on low heat and add desired amount of BBQ sauce.  Mix until well coated and cook about 2-3 minutes, or until hot again.

Licorice Lemonade

I am always on the lookout for good black licorice.  It's one of those things that I like to have in my cupboards for when I need a little something sweet.  I thought up this lemonade in attempts to use up the lemons on our tree and satisfy my love of licorice.  And with the temperature here pushing 110 degrees Fahrenheit, an ice cold glass of anything, really hits the spot!

Friday Night Camp Out, Gourmet Tin Foil Dinners

We decided to go camping this past weekend on a whim.  I wanted to keep it close to home, so we set up camp in our backyard.  I wasn't feeling up to packing everything up and using a potty that wasn't my own... I've gotten really lazy in my old age... plus, my kids are young enough that I can get away with it.  I used to be quite the outdoors woman in my college years.  I almost majored in Recreational Therapy, which will come as a shock to many who know me now.  I did try to make our camp out as much like REAL camping as possible, so we lit our fire pit, set up our tent and  I made these yummy tin foil dinners, which could easily be taken and made on a REAL camp out.  The kids loved cooking them and gobbled them up!  After our tummies had their fill, we just sat around the fire, telling stories and looking up at the stars until bedtime.  I have to say, it was a great use of a Friday night!

Chive And 'Cream Cheese' Smashed Red Potatoes

It seems that on every cooking competition on TV, pureed this, and foamed that, are all the rave.  I don't get it.  All I know is, as Moto Moto the Hippo from Madagascar says, "I like 'em chunky"... at least when it comes to potatoes... and babies.  Here is one of my favorite ways to make them... potatoes, that is.  Super easy and amazingly delicious!
Ingredients 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cubed water for boiling salt to taste 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 4 ounces Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Directions 1.  Boil the potatoes in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender.  Check with a fork. 2.  Drain the water and mix in the 'cream cheese', and chives and stir with a large spoon, breaking up the potatoes as you mix.  You could use a potato masher, but like I said, "I like 'em chunky". 3.  Salt to taste.
