This is a recipe I got from a girlfriend who I never met in real life but was a kindred spirit through the homeschooling forum I'm part of.
She died of breast cancer January 29 of this year. I hate that.
I've been thinking about her and praying for her husband and sons (9 and 11) often. Last night I decided to make this dinner and pray for them AS I cooked.
Maybe you can as well...
Fried Cabbage and Potatoes
3 Tbs oil
1 onion chopped
1/4 tsp dried mustard
4 large potatoes diced small
8c. shredded cabbage
1/4 tsp. ginger grated (or powder)
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tomato, diced
juice of one lemon
Heat oil and saute onions w/ dry mustard. Add potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Add all but the tomato and lemon stir/cook 'till tender and golden. Add lemon and tomato and serve with tortillas.
I tweak this a bit as that's what I do with EVERYTHING, but she thought that was great. :)
I use half red potatoes half sweet. Roast them with a dash of pepper and salt...oohhh - roasting them with the cayenne would be good too...hmmm.
I use half green cabbage half purple. For looks. :)
I've never bought turmeric so I used curry instead.
I also never measure oils or add that much salt.
I also forgot to add the tomato and lemon last night because I was trying to cook AND do something else at the same time.
Oh well. She'd forgive me, I'm sure.
So - basically you have an IDEA for a great dinner. I DID write it down exactly as she made it so you'll have the original as well.
Sandy - enjoy Jesus. We're still down here praying for your hubby and boys.
