Using Up Extra Whipped Cream

OK, there was only so much straight whipped cream I could eat. Believe me, I wanted to devour that whole bowl by myself, but I couldn't manage more than a couple spoonfuls. Looking around in the fridge, I decided to put half a head of cabbage to use and make coleslaw.

The leftover, sweetened whipped cream worked beautifully in place of mayonnaise-better actually. Mixed with some salt, cider vinegar, and black pepper, it takes on a really nice texture, without the gloppiness of mayo. I'm pleased it was put to good use, and even more pleased that I have found a nice alternative to eggs and oil.

I still would have preferred to eat the whipped cream alone-maybe next year.
