Happy Corned-Beefless Cabbage Soup


Hello, Darlings

I had a great idea for my cabbage soup. Lacking a brisket of corned beef, I decided to trick my cabbage into thinking that its familiar companion the corned beef was in the pot with it. Below is the resulting recipe.

Happy Corned-Beef-Less Cabbage Soup

Ingredients:

1 medium-large or large cabbage
1 bag of small red potatoes
1 large onion
1 ½ cup of small carrots
1 ½ cup chopped ham
1 ½ tablespoon of prepared corned beef seasoning
2 teaspoons of salt
½ teaspoon of black pepper
A pinch of crushed red pepper
1 ½ tablespoon of canola oil

Directions:
  • 1.     In a large Dutch oven add a half of pot of water with the onion, crushed red pepper, canola oil, salt, black pepper, and corned beef seasoning
  • 2.      Cook to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • 3.     Meanwhile, cut up and rinse cabbage; set aside
  • 4.     Wash potatoes and set aside.
  • 5.     Then wash the carrots and microwave them in a microwave cooking container with a steam filtering lid for 20 minutes on high.
  • 6.     When Dutch oven comes to a rolling boil add potatoes and cook for 20 minutes on medium heat.
  • 7.     After carrots are done, drain and put in the pot, then cook for another 15 minutes.
  • 8.     After this time is up, add cabbage and cook until the cabbage is done, about another 20 minutes.
  • 9.     If desired serve with cornbread or corn cakes

I must say that I was delighted by the results. Using the corned beef seasoning to season the cabbage soup was a good idea after all. It tastes as if there is really corned beef in it and has now become a regular soup on our menu.

Until next time,

Sour Cream Macaroni And Cheese Tuna Casserole Bake


Hello Darlings,

Today I am sharing my latest air fryer recipe, a tuna casserole dish. I wanted a change from my old recipe, so I changed it up a bit.  And all that I can say is that I wished I had thought of this sooner.

It tastes great! I hope you enjoy it as well as Stan and I do.

About the picture. There was an even amount of casserole left in the dish after I served it, but Stan decided to nibble on a little more before putting it in the refrigerator.
