I'm up early! I'll be taking my Greek style yogurt out of the slow cooker soon and I'll be making stuffed cabbage in it a little later.I put a layer of well rinsed sauerkraut on the bottom,stuffed cabbage next then another layer of sauerkraut on top and then pour tomato sauce all over it.This is the way the Hungarians make it.After it's cooked a roux will be added to thicken the the tomato gravy. This can be served with either a dollup of sour cream on top or the way my Dady liked it with a little cream poured over. the way it is served in Hungary I'll serve this with some good rye bread and mashed potatoes,hubby likes it with mashed potatoes on the side.

 GRANA here;
 THURSDAY;
NOON:
 I had planned on bacon& Swiss cheese omelets , had them made but   then hubby  chose to go to the new OUTLET MALL in the next town where we could spend the lovlely day walking  on paved ;   wind & sun sheltered   walkways, w/ restrooms conveniently located throughout.  Despite  the wide & varried  assortment  of "high end"  factory outlet stores ; I  found  nothing except   a brown leather patchwork purse w/ lots of  inside  pockets for 1/2 price( $14) but the straps were just  too short  to  hang over my  wheelchair  handles &  allow the purse to sit on my lap( safest most convenient location for me.
 NOON:
Hubby  packed& brought baloney& cheese sandwich. diet cream soda & rawapplefor his lunch&  took me tothe  FOOD COURT.Kiss
 Everything waShigh priced& unappealing Theveggie stir-fry at the wok place  had yellowed broccoli.Burgers w/o fres were over $6
& sanitation was IFFYUndecided
I found a wrap place tha looked clean &  offered  just whatI wanted ; a grilled  white meat chicken wrap w/  Romaine lettuce, roasted sweet red bell pepper per   strips. provolone cheese  and  a balsamic vinegrette  drizzle.I could only  manage to eat  half & took the rest  home for another  meal, another day WinkNext time, we'll share  one 9"x5"wrapWink

 Hubby located a  place to buy a tin roof sundae( roasted peanuts on a hot fudge sndae). A small one was  just right /BIG  enoughfor the two of us to share& be content
.Wink
DINNER:
 A  light, quick & easy McMuffin sandwich ( toasted  whole grain English muffin w/ a micro re-heated omelet inside 
 hot tea, a fresh sweet juicy orange & TOLLHOUSE  cookies:  BEST PART OFTHE WHOLE DAYCool

September 28th, 2012  Homemade pizza (dough and all!!) with sliced cucumbers and wedges of tomatoes.  10 years in NC and we still can't find a decent pizza!!  So homemade it is!  I miss NY food more than anything else besides my friends!

 Hi  GALE G;
 That's the way ay my Hungarian/Romanian   family made it & I still do; such fond memories of good  eating @ my NANA's table;no slow cooker for her or me, just a super  low simmer heat under a heavy pot of  goodness.SmileI've even slowcoked it in te microaveoven @305 power, worked just fine & no fearof scorching the  cabbage, which " stinks' badly enough w/o burning it.
***** Do you add raisins????***** We always do forr a sweet& sour  flavor we enjoy
My German Father  prefered it  that way (sweet& sour) & my NANA  added raisins  to please   him KissAs a child   liked it that way too; stil do Wink


ge in it a little later.I put a layer of well rinsed sauerkraut on the bottom,stuffed cabbage next then another layer of sauerkraut on top and then pour tomato sauce all over it.This is the way the Hungarians make it.After it's cooked a roux will be added to thicken the the tomato gravy. This can be served with either a dollup of sour cream on top or the way my Dady liked it with a little cream poured over. the way it is served in Hungary I'll serve this with some good rye bread and mashed potatoes,hubby likes it with mashed potatoes on the side.

We were invited out for dinner and had the best steaks for dinner!  Our hosts made fresh caramelized pecans for the salad and they were so very tasty, I think I could have made a meal of just those.  We had a wonderful meal and great conversation with many laughs.

Hi Ann, Yes my Dad was from Hungary, the part he was from is now Romania.My family never added raisins but I'm sure that would be good.I love my roots and all the great food and memories that go with it.Ann I found a better way to wilt the cabbage a huge time saver,I cored the cabbage and set it in the microwave core side down and zapped it 5 mins then repeated 2 more times.Just watch it all depends on the size of the cabbage as to how long to cook it the leaves just pulled off and were very easy to work with.Much safer for me in the wheel chair trying to do this in big pots of boiling water.My mom would make what I think was a piece of beef shank cooked in a sweet tomato sauce.I don't know if it's Hungarian or not or just something he liked,we didn't care for it as children but I would like to find out more about this dish would you happen to know about it or what it is called?

GRANA here;
 SATURDAY;we had plannedto go to the art museum today&  eat  lnch out at that city's Thai restaurant;  but heavy rain made the prospect of driving on rain  slick roads undesireable.
 NOON:
I've had  a craving for tofu for thelast several days.Today  is our usualChinese takeout day,The place we used to order from is gone the daily( one+ hour comute  from Boston & the young couples  3 kids made the prpspect ofowning  owning& running wning  their wn first class rstaurant  justtoo muchfor them.They made everything fresh, daily, nothing frozen used &  allowed customization  of most dishes; ...I could get any  veggies w/ tofu( fried or not  w/ any sauce /flavoring we/I wanted  for   very moderate price.
we've been ordering; since they closed own)om another place  ; one we used to order from nearly 10 years ago.I asked him(owner/PAUL what  tofu dishes  he had? He suggested a vegetable delight  to which he would addtofu for $1 more.
Hubby wanted chow mein in, today so I asked Paul, the owner, if hecould replace he  chicken w/ tofu (hubby  approved)Paul said yes, hecould give us one large  piece of tofu for $1.extra)I told im that the tofu is usually cut nto bite sized piecesfor easier eating w/ chopsticks.He agreed to  do this and 20 minutes later hubby picked up our single order  of    Tofu chow mein n w/o msg or salt.I expeted the chicken in the how mein to be replaced by tofu, fine / me but hubbyl ikes the chicken.
 S*U*R*P*R*I*S*E*
!!!!!
Hubby got his chicken &  I got plentyof bite sized tofu pieces.Smile
 Hubby got  his  boneless  spareribs.& fried rice too. Paul  now makes his  boneless spareribs like sesame spareribs[ a special appetizer ]  but w/o the seeds...we both lovethe flavor& moistness & need to use no duk sauce or mustard; just perfect as  it is.Smile
Paul ave us 5 large,boneless porkchop   like pieces of lean boneles spareibs& lotsof fried rice w/ roast pork cubes; which both cats insist on sharing w/ "pawpaw" (hubby) I always have homemade brown rice for myself
Today we started w// my homemade  Japanese  cucumber salad(gnger & sweet onions and we shared the ribs Hubby had the fried rice  (  shared the  pork w/ Cali& Maestro)

We both had lite buttered popcorn . I had  apple cisp& hubby had ice cream.

.Hubby was supposed to cut the melon but  he fell asleep watching Saturday T.V cowboy  showsGUNSMOKE&  BONANZA).... Whilehe slept, since had almost no cooking/food prep to do today,I thoughtI'd givehima break & cut the melon for im. we usuallypay $.99 to $1.79 for canteloupes, bu this one cost $2.49.We both craved canteloupe & hubby  bought  it despite the high price.It was the brest canteloupewe've had all year& I got 2  [ 3 cup] conrainers filed w/   bite sized cubes of melon, making it a "bargain" Money mouthCool

Hi GALE G;

 My  family(Mom's side are Jews from Hungary& Romania,Eastern European Jew call stuffed cabbage Holishkes( hohl- ish-kas.; A peasant Dish dsh made rom inexpensive ingredients(  cabbage rice& ground meat.Paprika is a must in all Hungarian dishesThe dish actually uses very little eat since th meat rolls ee rolls are extendedw/ rice&  lots of cabbageleaves go into thepot, so not much eat is needed.*****
I like your method of
microwve softening  of  the abbage  leaves...Since childhood I have submerged  a head fcabbage in aBIG kettle of boilimg water& then trying no to scald myself when removing it o aplatter and gently removing  the   leaves onebyone, hopefully keeping them whole or roling around logs of  meat ,rice& paprika. MyMom's family  always used lots of onions in their  dishes,I stil do & go through5# sacks of  all purpose yellow onions pretty rapidly.FrownI add 
 orthin srips of red or  green sweet bellpepper to my cabbage  rolls9 sauce)t know if ittraditional but  we bothlike itthat way &  it  gives us even more  veggies w/ their fiber & vitamins .in our meal.
My Nana seved homemade ple strudel w/ her holishkas; I serve aple crisp

Hi Ann,I keep a good supply of Hugarian Paprika on hand at all times.We call stuffed cabbage "Toltott Kaposzta" My meat filling is ground pork,rice,Lots of sauteed onions,salt, pepper,a little garlic,raw egg and of course paprika.Any cabbage leaves that are extra are chopped up and used in the sauce along with well rinsed sauerkraut.I use a mix of tomato juice and sauce.When this is all cooked I remove the cabbage rolls and thicken the sauce with a roux.I use a lot of onions when I cook I go through 5 # plus in a week.Nothing flavors like sauteed onions.Tonight I made a meatloaf in the slow cooker and it came out nice and moist,I will be using this slow cooker a lot it's a safer option for me.
