Like most people who often cook from scratch, I am just used to peeling and chopping all my own vegetables, making my own dough, and – not to be overlooked – doing lots of dishes! So when I recently decided I’d like to try making a “real food” coleslaw dish, I looked at the green and purple cabbages in the produce section of the supermarket and thought 2 heads of cabbage was an awful lot to buy (and chop up) for one small colorful dish of coleslaw. I asked the produce manager if he could cut the cabbages in half for me when he pointed me in the direction of pre-cut, bagged cabbages just for the purpose of making coleslaw – duh! I am so used to not being able to buy “convenience” food anymore that it didn’t even dawn on me to buy these ingredients pre-cut and ready to go. What a time saver (and a more appropriate amount of food)!
