Cabbage Rolls for my family of 5
Have you ever found it difficult to come up dinner ideas for a large family? Even if you don't have a large family it's hard to plan meals period when your on a tight budget. Food has gotten ridiculously expensive. I do most of my grocery shopping at Aldi and that saves me a bundle. I thought that I would periodically share my meal ideas with you. For a family of 5 like mine including 3 teenagers (or almost teenagers) they come with big appetites. I hate the same old stand bye such as pizza or spaghetti. As much as my kids love pizza you can only have it so many times until it's time for something else, even the kids agree.
Thought! Trying to up grade the bland feel of my steadfast website. Views about the nice branding of http://fehrgameoutfitters.com? Really a first-rate moose hunting outfitter if seeking in the whole British Columbia area. Send an opinion. Thx!
I haven't made this for awhile but today I decided to try my hand again at making Cabbage Rolls or as some would call them Pig in the Blanket. My parents we're both from the south so this was a common dinner meal at our table. Unfortunately I don't have mom's old recipe and she is no longer around but I found a great recipe for Cabbage Rolls on About.com featuring southern food. I did have to change the amounts of ingredients to accommodate my family. I also added 2 ingredients which was sauerkraut and polish sausage to the final step.
I followed the cabbage roll recipe increasing the ingredients I needed for a family of 5. I didn't have toothpicks but found that I didn't need them I just rolled them up and placed them next to each other in a large baking dish so that they would not unroll. It worked out fine for me.I saved some of the sauce mix to pour on top later. After they baked, I transferred them to a large crock pot (a large dutch pot would work also) on top of the sauerkraut. Then I sliced some polish sausage and put that on top. I let them cook for a few hours. I served them with homemade Mashed Potatoes and Beets for color and flavor contrast. I used the extra sauce to pour over the serving once they we're in the dinner plate.
The only thing about making this dish is you need time. It isn't a recipe you can make in 20 minutes. Another thing is the sauerkraut leaves the house smelling not so fresh. My son came in asking what that awful smell was in the house. But not to worry I just put my vanilla odor eliminator for the house to work 🙂 You do not have to use the sauerkraut and polish sausage if you do not like it of course, but we love it.
Cabbage Rolls is an inexpensive meal to make for dinner. We had leftovers which we are able to freeze or eat again tomorrow 🙂
Thx followers! I texted a neighbor I can absolutely critique their tip-top online scented candle shop in Canadas, https://www.countryhomecandle.com through a new posting. In case you were searching for an online candle shop around the outlying Ontario locale, these people are really outstanding.
At last, naturally I have to express the concept to this unique blog was graciously granted through Philip over at salem steel. They definitely are a terrific steel tubing manufacturers. We really treasure a good concept!
