    All of that sounds delicious, @Jeanee Burke , and welcome to our Seniors ONly Club ! ! Glad to have you joining us. There is a little section at the top left side of the main page for introductions, if you would like to let everyone know that you are here, and tell us a little about yourself if you are comfortable doing that.

    We are having chicken and macaroni salad that is made with my potato salad recipe tonight. Just a simple and fast meal, for this hot and muggy day. Chipper is already rolling around on the floor and saying his "Holy Roller Grace";so He is anxious for dinner, too.

    I like cabbage but It has only been cooked in my home one time in all my grown up years and that was in the '70s when my MIL was living with us. She cooked a pot full and she and I ate it over the course of several days. I remember it smelled up the house. I would like to cook some but Lordy, not that much. There used to be a chain of cafeteria s in Texas, called Furr's Cafeterias, back in that time, and I often got cabbage with my meals there. I 'm not sure how you cook cabbage, boil it in a pot I would guess. I wouldn't want to cook up a bunch since I am the only one who would eat it but I was thinking of taking about four leaves and cutting them into two or three squares and cooking them. That should make a good helping, maybe two if you were dieting. Seasoning would be salt and pepper I'm guessing. Anyone know a better way?

    We cook cabbage quite a bit. I really like it with potatoes onions and carrots in a pot roast or corned beef. It can be boiled as you said or fried in a skillet alone or with other vegetables or Polish sausage.

    No, not pulling your leg. Nothing wrong with eating them on occasion but I was eating too many. They have sugar alcohol and nothing good in them. And each one had 4 grams of carbs which is a lot for colored water.

    I do love them though and they are low calorie, take time to eat, cool me off in this heat but I was eating too many.

    I never cook red cabbage I always eat it raw... I used to eat white cabbage raw as well when I was a kid as I did all veggies..but not any more..I cook them all now , and I often fry shredded cabbage in a little butter or groundnut oil...it's actually more tasty cooked that way IMO...

    Anyway Ham and cabbage is food sent from the Gods... one of my favourite foods from my childhood... [​IMG]


    Tonight I had a craving for Chinese food, but the nearest take away restaurant is a drive away and neither of us could be bothered to get all smartened up and get one of the cars out to drive to the next town just for something for me... o/h didn't want any ..so I just chopped some organic mushrooms, chopped some bacon , fried them off lightly.. added some rice and a beaten egg, and with a splash of light Soy and Hoisin sauce ... voila...something that almost resembled Chinese food [​IMG]...well it was close enough to take my craving away anyway... :D

    We usually have our cabbage stirfried, actually more like sautéed, and I use a dab of coconut oil (which is what we use for most of our cooking oil) and sometimes add slivered onions and carrots to the cabbage. I have not done this with red cabbage; but I don't see any reason that you couldn't do that, or even mix red and green cabbage if you like to.
    This is an easier way to cook cabbage than just putting it in a pan and boiling it, and since cabbage cooks pretty fast, it doesn't even take long to make it this way.
    Sometimes, when we have bacon, I cook the bacon in the pan, and then add the sliced cabbage into the bacon grease to cook it instead of using coconut oil. I always chop the cabbage into thin slices or chunks before I cook it this way.
    I also love raw cabbage, and often make coleslaw in the food processor, which is quick and easy, too.

    And to think, I was about to invite you to dinner. Well, you know what they say, every man {or lady} to his own cup of tea. I hesitate to tell you, I'm sipping a cold cup of left over black breakfast coffee even now. I'm sure you must be thinking, 'woe is he.' Cheers.

    This is one of my favorite ways of cooking cabbage because it makes a complete meal. I use rotel tomatoes and did not add thyme when I make this. And of course I season with cajun spice. :)
