I think I have a new favorite....


Call it a "fad" or a "phase", but I just realized I love cabbage!

After all these years of avoiding it, turning my nose up at it and snubbing it as an edible food, I have come to realize that...it really isn't that bad.

It all started with the pre-made cole slaw in a bag. I usually go for homemade, but I had a recipe that called for cole slaw so I grabbed what was easy. I had some leftover so I thought I would be brave and try it. I was not prepared for how much I liked it!

I liked it so much I couldn't wait to go to the store to buy more. How sad is that?

Then I decided to actually make food with cabbage as a main ingredient. Gasp! So, I made this tasty dish. It comes from a blog I found a while ago. (This woman is so sweet and encouraging. I just love reading her blog!) Anyway, I would have added a tad more seasoning to it, but it turned out to be very yummy anyway!

To top it all off you wouldn't believe what I had for lunch yesterday.

Cabbage salad...just cabbage salad...and I was loving every bite. (I made my own cole slaw dressing from 1/2 cup mayo, 2 Tbs milk, 1 Tbs vinegar and 1/2 tsp sugar. I whisked it all together and drizzled it on the cabbage. Yummy!)

Remember when your parents told you your taste buds would change? Well, they do, and you just might like it.

Beware, sordid joke ahead...

If you're going to be eating that much cabbage, you might want to grap some gas-ex and a candle next time your out. Spare your hubby and the kids a little cabbage trama. haha
