German night sausages and cabbages

Tonight, became German night as the ingredients I had at disposal was sausages frozen in my freezer, a cabbage and an onion from the CSA!


But the night started with a problem... a craving for Wonton soup. Again.


After browsing on allrecipes.com, I found a great recipe for Cabbage and Dumplings... sounded promising.


Cabbage and Dumplings


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 head green cabbage, chopped
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt to taste
***1/2 to 1 T apple cider vinegar



  1. Melt the butter in a skillet. Cook the onion and cabbage in the butter over medium-high heat until the cabbage is translucent.
  2. Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Mix the flour and water together into a dough. Drop the dough by small spoonfuls into the boiling water and cook until firm; drain. Add the dumplings to the cabbage mixture. Season with salt to serve.
  3. ***I tasted the dish and thought it could use some vinegar to round it out. It was the right trick!

Defrosted the sausages quickly (hot Italians) quickly in warm water.  I poached them in beer as I have done before.  I don't want to repeat it, because, as the blog explains, it's a repeat!

All together it was a great meal.  JW really enjoyed it. But he likes things like cabbage, sausages, and beer...

Leftover pumpkin pie for dessert! yum.  JW doesn't want whip cream, he wants ice cream!
