I would see this side dish on restaurant menus and would become so excited. #YesPlease
However, when it was brought to the table from the server, my smile would turn upside down the second I would look at it. “Excuse me, what’s that?!”, I would say pointing to the bowl and thinking I was saying it nicely. #SorryNotSorry “That’s cabbage.”, they would reply. Plus, I’m a visual eater, so I did not like what I was seeing. “That’s not cabbage.”, I would say. All the while thinking ‘That’s not my grandma ‘s cabbage!’ It was swimming in a pool of liquid, and soft. Basically, boiled AND soggy. Again, thinking ‘That’s not my grandma’s cabbage!’
So, I stopped ordering cabbage at restaurants.
One year for thanksgiving, I stayed up late to cook with my grandma. I was extra excited because I loved my grandma’s food! She didn’t have recipes for me to follow. She just had her eyes, hands and knowledge. #Thanksgiving #CookingWithGrandma
That’s when I learned the secret! Grandma #FriedCabbage #Whaat #WhoKnew #NowIdo
And I add some #TurkeySmokedSaugage Now side dish to a meal😃
