Don’t get me started on red cabbage. I’m a little obsessed. Come summertime it’s all about cabbage slaw (recipe soon to come) with all kinds of mix-ins from mango to fennel to green apple. It’s like an ice cream bar but healthier. To my shock and surprise, the kids all loved it. Maybe because it looks so cool with its vivid purple and white coloring.

What does it feel like?
LAUREN: “Like leather.”
SAM: “It feels like a monster.”
