Growing up, when our family got together for a cookout we always had slaw with our burgers and dogs.  Notice one thing here, I said, “Slaaww” not Coleslaw.  Most folks around here know that when one says slaw, we mean cabbage with mayo and a few – very few – other ingredients.  Here’s my Mama’s recipe. It’s creamy with just the right mix of flavors.

With the weather turning warmer it was time to grill out.  So, last weekend, I grabbed all the goodies needed to top burgers, made some baked beans and set up the bar.  Everyone got to pile on their favorite toppings and I had lots of napkins on hand!
Mustards, mayo, pickles, onion, tomatoes and ketchup – YUM!
We all grabbed a plate and worked our way down the bar…the burger bar!
