Delicious Coleslaw

I know, this isn't about Clay....this time, but I have to brag. I made coleslaw for the very first time and it turned out delicious. It was spur-of-the-moment. I was food shopping and saw a container of raw coleslaw/cabbage already chopped and shredded for $.99. It's cheaper to chop my own, but with my ant problem, I'm taking the easy way out.

I went to, my favorite recipe site, well, that and, which helped me to lose 25 pounds. Anywho, I did a search on for coleslaw and a ton of recipes came up. I read about 10 of them, then decided to just go simple and make it with mayo (Helman's, of course), white wine vinegar, some basil-garlic seasoning, and some dill. OMG, delish!

When using that site, I like to read about 10 recipes, then just use what I think is good and in whatever quantity I think belongs.

What's for dinner tonight? Cheeseburger with no bun and coleslaw. Maybe a veggie, too.

Several Clay mentions today

From Billboard Chart Beat Thursdays:

FEAT OF CLAY: With "Tried & True" becoming his fifth top 10 on the Billboard 200 with a debut at No. 9, Clay Aiken passes Kelly Clarkson for most top 10s on the tally by an "American Idol" graduate.

Carrie Underwood ranks third among the Fox TV series' former finalists with three top 10 albums, followed by Daughtry's Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler, Jordin Sparks and Ruben Studdard, each with two top 10s.

Aiken first appeared on the Billboard 200 with "Measure of a Man," which spent its first two weeks at No. 1 in November 2003. He revisited the top tier with "Merry Christmas With Love" (No. 4, 2004), "A Thousand Different Ways" (No. 2, 2006) and "On My Way Here" (No. 4, 2008).

From on ranking American Idol Runners Up:
(1) Clay Aiken: (Season 2) Clay didn't need any bells and whistles or lighting effects to get to this spot in this list. With one of the most impeccable voices we've heard on the show, all he really had to do was sing. He still has the vocals that have really only been rivaled by David Cook in range and consistency. No one on this list can match the finesse and power of Clay Aiken's belting range, not even Adam and his constant falsetto. (Of course, we don't know if Clay can scream, but how much screaming do we really want to hear?)
