A copycat version of Cracker Barrel's famous cole slaw - enjoyed at home! Perfect for your next BBQ or picnic!
We're HUGE fans of going out to eat in this family. In fact, it would be safe to say it's one of our favorite things to do together. Which is why when the new baby arrives in October, I'm a little scared! It might be *just a little* difficult with an infant and two little boys in tow.
When Silas was a baby, we tried going out to eat a few times, but it was always one big exhausting disaster. I feel like I had to bring so much stuff "just in case" that it would have been easier to just stay home - ha! It took me 45 minutes just to get ready to go out to eat. Of course at the time, I'm not sure we even tried a kid-friendly restaurant - which is one of the many reasons why we LOVE Cracker Barrel.
Not only do the boys absolutely love the food there, they are always super nice to our kiddos when we go! I really love that they can have fun too while eating out and not worry about being... well... kids! And boy oh boy do I now realize how quickly they are out of the baby/toddler phase - they are both great when we go out to eat now. Proud mommy, here!
Cracker Barrel's current menu offerings have my mouth watering - I'm telling you!! Their Buttermilk Fried Chicken looks SO incredible. I also spotted a new Strawberry Shortcake dessert, along with a Strawberry Iced tea that I can't wait to try. I almost can't decide if the main dishes or the sides are my favorite! Sweet potato fries, corn, coleslaw... I love them all!

This recipe MIGHT be enough to just tide me over until our next family trip to Cracker Barrel!
Before leaving we love visiting Cracker Barrel’s Retail Store on the way out. They have such cute and unique products for the home and products for the kitchen. One of these days I will splurge and buy us a set of those amazing rocking chairs for us!
