Relaxing long weekend

Written By: Vinnie - Jan• 21•13

Hope everyone has had a great weekend and hopefully you are getting a long weekend!!

Not sure why but I was craving cabbage so I made a WONDERFUL cabbage, tomato and sausage dish.. not sure really what to call it… it wasn’t really a soup or stew but anywho here is the recipe…

1 head of green cabbage cut into chunks

1 package of Ekrich sausage (or your favorite brand cut into rounds)

1 can of diced tomatoes

1 can mild Ro’tel

1 onion (diced)

2 cloves of garlic (minced)

salt, pepper and coriander

Cut the cabbage into chunks, dice the onion and mince the garlic. Add all ingredients to crock pot and turn on high. Salt and pepper to taste and about a 1/2 tsp o the coriander. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low  for 5-6 hours. I served this over rice but this would also be good over egg noodles.

cabbage and tomato dinnerThis was so GOOD!!! We will be having this again for sure! I was afraid it would be bland as so many cabbage dishes are but it was full of flavor and the mild Ro’tel added just a bit of heat!

While at Walgreen’s the other day waiting on some meds I ran across some pretty cool sodas that I had never seen before.. So you know abut the Dr Pepper ten sodas?… well now they have Canada dry, Sunkist, RC and A&W ten!

all ten sodas

They had little individual bottles as well so I got a couple of each and C and I both agree they all taste like the real things!! COOL just another option if you need want soda but do not like the aspartame taste of a diet soda.

already playing with the xbox controller

C has not played his Xbox in forever until recently and it looks like someone else is starting to like the xbox… I’ll be needing another TV please!!! LOL
