Mango Coleslaw

Normally I change several ingredients in a recipe, but this is a great recipe. I only added more vinegar.

Ingredients: 2 cups purple cabbage, diced…

Easy breakfast

No big surprises here. Scramble some eggs with the grease leftover from the sausages. Throw in some diced onion and tomato. It’s like having an omlette without all the work.
