Now We're Cooking!

October 11th, 2019 at 06:50 pm

While the dog and I took an early walk, I've been mostly inside today--alternating between grading and cooking.

I made a big pot of potato leek soup, adapting Pioneer Woman's recipe to include leeks instead of celery. The not-so-swell apples went into cranberry apple crisp, and I've cooked down some red cabbage. Happy to use lots things up, and SO happy to have a day home. I really don't like the administrative part of my job--too much responsibility and too little reward. Give me the classroom any darn day.

DD has a jam-packed weekend with work and lots of school service projects. I intend to do lots of work and get my horrible house picked up--starting now with my kitchen mess.

No spending but plenty of goodness today!

    Bet your house smells good with the soup! It's cool, rainy, and windy here and that soup sounds delicious!

    Tell me about your red cabbage recipe. I had that once at a german restaurant that didn't survive in our little town. It was way better than the larger german restaurant that lasted much longer in the town over. Willing to share the recipe?

    GoodLiving, my sister used to cook down red cabbage and mix it with red currant jelly. Here is a recipe that sounds similar: https://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/braised-red-cabbage-red-currant-jelly

    It was yummy!

    CB--That's the red cabbage recipe I made! I had some leftover currant jelly from a summer fuit tart. It was great. And I heartily recommend the Pioneer Woman's potato soup. It was delish!
