pink-slaw, geodes and turbans

my mum and dad have been staying with us for the weekend, so we thought we would treat them to our new favourite recipie, pink-slaw, made with beetroot and turnip (from our garden) and red cabbage (from the supermarket!), and just a little bit of mayonnaise...




mmmmmm, pink-slaw and roast chicken!

my pop pays good attention and brought me a lovely little geode from the shop at the ulster museum...


and my maw, in her creative genius, brought a turban from a performance of a mini-play she wrote, which i nabbed as i think it looks rather fetching in a little edie type way.  


no, i don't think it makes me look like a crazy at all!

thank you lovely followers!!

the recipie for the slaw is just grated raw beetroots (whatever colours as long as some pink!), grated raw turnip and finely slice raw red cabbage, in the ratio of 2 parts cabbage & beet to 1 turnip. i just use a little good ready made mayo, as i think homemade is a bit too rich for slaws. thats it!!
