Another cooking video for your viewing pleasure.
This week, I made stuffed cabbage a la Michael’s Aunt Pat. Actually, she and his grandmother refer to this dish as Pigs in a Blanket, but to me, that’s something else altogether. ANYWAY, this was a very easy dish, and I made it in the crockpot, as part of my ongoing effort to tame the slow cooker beast. You could prepare the entire dish the night before and just throw it in the fridge overnight so that in the morning, you just need to turn on the crockpot and go.
Incidentally, Dylan LOVED this. She kept expounding on how delicious it was, and how I did such a great job flavoring it. She ate it twice; once with me, and then again an hour later, when Michael had his serving (halftime of the Pats/Colts game). Max also had two servings. I added a touch of sour cream to my plate to mellow the flavors. I thought it was a nice touch, but it is fine without it.
OK, I've been threatening to do this for a while now. It's super rough, and I had to perch the video camera on two phonebooks, so for most of this you will see a headless body discussing salad. Also, you will hear Max babbling throughout. BUT, I finally did it. I made a cooking video! (This is nearly 8 minutes long, so be warned. Also, it's Quicktime, so you can download it to your iPod and watch it in your kitchen while you cook.)
