Today's recipe

Here is a favorite of mine:

Wilted Cabbage

(Some people call this fried cabbage)
1 medium head of cabbage, coarsely shredded
4 slices of bacon
¼ C thinly sliced onion
¼ C vegetable oil
2 T sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the bacon into pieces about ½ inch.  Fry until crisp in a large skillet, stirring while it cooks.  Add the onion and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the shredded cabbage, and sugar.  Stir continuously as it cooks. Add the oil a couple of tablespoons at a time as needed.  Cook until the cabbage is wilted down, but not completely soft.  Serve immediately.

I liked to add ½ pound cajun sausage sliced thin to this. Add it to the bacon when it is almost finished.

Cooking for two

Well, we are at that stage in life where we cook for two.  I see a lot of recipes on blogs and the networks site that I try, but they make such a big amount of food that we end up throwing a lot away.

So I will try on this blog to make food that will feed two with maybe lunch leftovers.  Some of these will not have specific recipes, but will just include the ingredients and suggestions. Because that's the way I usually cook unless I am baking!

So far I have not ventured into the photography thing but I will try to get that going real soon!

So come back soon and follow along!
