Gale...

Like you, I enjoy learning about different things!  We eat them with butter and molasses or powder sugar on top!  They are also associated with Shrove Tuesday which is 2/15.

Thanks for sharing with me also!   It's all so interesting!!  :')

Here's my old cabbage recipe ......

Bon's Cabbage Casserole

Brown 1 lb hamburger (add chopped onions) in large skillet.
Add two cans of tomato soup and 1/2 can milk
Add two heaping tablespoons long grain rice
Cook over low heat 5 minutes.

In the meantime grease a large, deep baking dish.
Cut a large head of cabbage into a few large slices slightly separated.
Put the cabbage in the dish and pour in the hamburger, soup mixture.
Don't stir - just bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.

Nancy, have you ever tried using V8 juice in your cabbage dishes or soups instead of just tomato soup? That makes them sooooo yummy and the spicy V8 will really warm you up!

Elsa M at least someone thought that was funny. When St Patricks does come I usualy make Corned Beef & Cabbage. I'm not Irish at least I don't think I am My moters maiden name was Case. So I don't know if that is Irish or not? If anyone knows let me know. Her father mothers family was American Native/German & her mother was German. My dads family was American Native/German My Husbands fathers family was from Austria Hungry. His mothers family was German.

Hi Wa-Ha K -- I really like V-8 juice (had it last night with my sausage gravy/biscuit dinner) and it's always in my 'fridge but I've never thought of using it like you suggest.  I have to try that!  Thank you for such a good idea.

Here's another old recipe I've used for years ..... nothing at all to do with St. Patricks

TOMATO BEEF STEAKS
2 lbs cubed steaks  (I used those for years then switched to lean hamburger patties - it's better)
1/4 cup oil
6 medium tomatoes peeled
1/4 cup chopped green onions (any onion you have on hand)
2 tblsp sugar
2 tsps salt
2 heaping tsps basil
2 tblsp cornstarch

About 45 minutes before serving, in large skilled over medium high heat in hot salad oil,
fry steaks, several pieces at a time, 2 or 3 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.
Remove to heated platter and keep warm.
Reduce heat to medioum, to same skillet (I dump oil), add 1/4 cup waqter, 3 tomatoes
chopped, green onions and sugar.   Blend 1/4 cup cold water and cornstarch
until smooth, gradually stir into tomato mixture, stirring constantly until thickened.
Add remaining three tomatoes sliced.  Cook until tomato slices are heated through.
Pour tomato mixture over steaks on platter.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.

I agree with Fran - cabbage rolls are great.  I've even found them in the deli at Krogers.  Stuffed peppers are good too.
