Cooking Thoughts.....

-----One of the things we considered possibly having as part of dinner yesterday was Roasted Nappa Cabbage. We have a huge Napa Cabbage we found at Walmart to use up.
Note to self: I need to write Walmart a note about how well their system has been washing the Napa Cabbage...and how sludgy the celery cotainers were on one visit.

-----Husband and I both agree that we want to try Jalapeno Popper Mac and Cheese.

Blog Find: "Healthy. Delicious."

Kielbasa and Napa Cabbage is for dinner tonight. :-)
---It includes apples and caraway seed. Husband does not like caraway seed but tolerates it...I hope we don't skip this ingredient because I want to make the dish true to the recipe.
---Tomorrow we are having a pot roast with a bunch of produce we need to use up (including adding the tops and bottoms of a couple bunches of green onions near the end of slow cooking).
---Someday soon I would like to try making Jalapeno Pot Roast. #beef #SouthernFood

-----I have just started writing a review of a book on PTSD. Looking through the table of contents I see the third chapter entitled "Special Times" and I wonder what that is about. Maybe the disturbing effect that holidays can have when one is struggling with traumatic memories? The woman who wrote this book is the wife of a Vietnam veteran.
-----I am currently addicted to the Netflix series "Damages" with Meryl Streep. It seems there is not only one big case each season but also one mysterious murder of a major good guy each season. I am in Season 3.
-----We are having Roasted Asparagus today. :-)
-----Someone in our city was looking for a dog walker. They didn't find one before the date they would have liked to fill the job. Imagine that in this cold Winter weather.

Listening through The Beatles' first album today. I am taking a class about the music of The Beatles offered FREE via Coursera and the University of Rochester.
