Foodie Friday


It is Foodie Friday!



Our hostess is
Gollum



Our St Patrick's Day Edition of Foodie Friday is
HOT SLAW

(not spicy, unless you want it to be. The hot refers to it being warm)


(from Mother's handwritten cookbook again)

Our shopping list:

1 large onion
1 green bell pepper
1 head of cabbage cut up or two bags of pre-washed shredded cabbage

1 large can of stewed tomatoes
1/4 tsp of tobasco (or other hot sauce)
1/4 cup of white vinegar
salt & Pepper to taste
1 package of link sausage (cut into bite size pieces)


In Bacon grease (either fry 2 pieces of bacon and save the grease or as most southern belle's have a container in the fridge grab you a spoonful) To that add chopped bell pepper, onion and cabbage
Stir well until cabbage turns a brighter green.

Add the other ingredients ( tomato; s&p; tobasco; vinegar; sausage)
simmer covered for about 45 minutes



Serve warm!
We always add extra hot sauce to our own bowls
For desert try little chick cupcakes

Top cupcakes with yellow icing dot with white for eyes add mini chocolate chips to eyes then a piece of candy corn for a beak!
(HINT: the party stores sell candy corn year round)
Orren thinks they are the BEST!

Orren is right! Those cupcakes look yummy! Your recipe looks really good - what kind of sausage did you use?

♥Trina♥ said...

Yum! I will have to try that! We love sausage and kraut, and what since kraut is made from cabbage, I'm sure we'd love this, too.
