Polynesian barbecue cubed turkey topped with coleslaw

On our way home from the beach on Friday we stopped at this trendy restaurant in Santa Clara called World Wrapps. While we can’t eat the wraps/burritos, I can have them make a wrap into a rice bowl instead. The kids and I had their Polynesian Pork Wrapp which was really tasty. It consisted of Pulled-Pork  served with Jasmine rice, a tropically inspired lemon slaw, and a Pineapple BBQ sauce. Now who wouldn’t think this was wonderful?

Today I decided I was going to try my hand at this dish with some leftover barbequed Turkey instead.

I took a can of pineapple tidbits and tossed them into the food processor with a cup of Kinder’s Mild BBQ Sauce to create my base sauce. I then cooked up some white rice and made a batch of coleslaw.

The sweet barbecue sauce with the flavors of the coleslaw go well together with the meal. It may not look like all that, but the flavors are spectacular together well you take each bite.

Coleslaw with Raisins

My daughter has been asking me to make her meatloaf for several days. I have finally given in and made her, her “favorite” dinner as she tells me.

I made rice and coleslaw to go with it… and have to say — I love my slaw every time I make it. This time I changed it up and added raisins and it still was great if not better!
