Beet Horseradish Coleslaw

So this morning M woke up with a "sore throat, (she did sound hoarse), belly ache worse than normal and feeling sick". At least those are her words to describe her condition to me when she woke up this morning.
I decided to let her stay home. I realize now it was a mistake, since she is totally fine and realized she is having a serious case of schoolitis. Yes, the honeymoon period is over and she would rather not go to school. Ever since I got the flu and she got to stay home for two days she has decided she would rather not go to school and has pretty much either cried or come super darn close every morning at school. This is the same child that told almost all of the kindergarten that she was starting a band, having a party and organizing the potluck all on her own. Well, I told her today that unless she has a fever of something severe there will be no more "sick" days.
I did make her eat soup the whole day due to saying she was sick, so she got her serving of kale and carrots!
Yesterday at the coop there were samples of Bubbies Beet Horseradish. It was mixed it with a bit of cream cheese and put it on a cracker. I was sold. I bought a bottle and stared scheming right away. Somehow I managed to think it a good pairing with dill pickles. So, this very simple and surprisingly satisfying dish was inspired by the slightly sweet earthy beet horseradish. I really love the pink hue it imparts on the cabbage too...

You amaze me. It looks interesting, although I'm not sure that this is one I could get past the lips of my children. It's awfully pretty in the picture, though!
