Madd Russian "Look bad, Taste good"

As a Kid I was forced to eat slaw, which I did not like, but I found if I mixed it with mashed potatoes and added tomato ketchup it was fairly good.

I acquired a taste for it and found it was better with iceberg lettuce and Heinz tomato ketchup.

I now do a ½ head of lettuce and 2 ½ LB mashed potatoes and Heinz tomato ketchup as dinner now.

Dig in and enjoy.
It one of my favorite meals
