Meal Planner Monday: Freezer Coleslaw & Primanti-like Sandwich

The Steelers are playing Monday Night Football...Does that put you in the mood for a "Pittsburgh-classic" kind of meal?
Freezer Coleslaw (serves 4 -8) 1 medium head of cabbage 1 carrot 1 teaspoon salt 1 onion 1 cup vinegar 1/4 cup water 1 teaspoon celery seed 2 cups sugar Cut cabbage and onion. Mix with salt and let stand one hour. Mix the vinegar, water, celery seed, and sugar. Bring all this to a boil and boil one minute. Let cool until lukewarm. Cut up carrot and mix with the cabbage. Pour the vinegar mixture over the cabbage & let it set for about an hour. Serve or place in containers/freezer bags and freeze. The recipe says to boil the vinegar dressing, but I just mix it all together (I guess maybe I'm just lazy). I like to make this coleslaw for my version of the Pittsburgh Primanti Brothers sandwich... Primanti-like Sandwich (This is much healthier than the real thing) Thick sliced homemade Italian bread Deli-style ham, several slices A "heaping handful" of Homemade French Fries (see below) Provolone cheese, optional Sliced tomato, optional A "heaping handful" of Coleslaw (above)
Serve on wax paper for authenticity!
Homemade French Fries (I just kind of make it up as I go) French cut potatoes Drizzle liberally with olive oil and salt - mix together - spread out on greased baking sheet Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. (You'll want to flip them a couple times while baking.)
