Visions of sugarplums! No? Cabbage!

I am on a mission to use up food we have in our freezer before we leave for Florida. Remembering my love for Mom's cooked cabbage, the Feuilles de Chou Farcies from


really caught my attention. With everything already on hand except the cabbage, less than $2.00 at the grocery store had us ready to fire up the stove! As one learns when preparing most of the recipes from this book, a wealth of time is a requirement.  It took several hours just to prepare the dish for the oven.


And, thankfully, I have Paul, my partner in everything...


We followed the recipe exactly. Julia gives very specific directions.




Our efforts paid off quite nicely, although we had enough to feed a large group. Fortunately, the freezer had room! (One step forward, two steps back.)


The carrots that are roasted with the stuffed cabbage and the accompanying tomato sauce flavored with sage really added the perfect touch to the meal.


It was good comfort food for a cold winter night.


We're dreaming about our trip to warmer climates! But, we're enjoying our days at home, too!

Oh, my Lord - does that look good! I can almost smell the aroma by just seeing the pictures! And I loved the humorous cartoons - you are good! Nice to have a meal or two in the freezer!

Yum! They look delish - sounds like a lot of work, though. These multi-step recipes really intimidate me... I might not be ready to tackle Julia's recipes just yet...
