Food Your Grandparents Like

What a pretty soft, color this cabbage has.


Tried a stuffed cabbage recipe from this book since I have the dreggs of fall cabbage left in the garden. (That sounds appetizing: Stuffed Dreggs)

Anyway, it seemed like the kind of recipe my mother or grandmother would've made.


So, I poured couscous and water in the bottom of the dutch oven instead of rice,


lay cabbage leaves over that,


mixed the meat, egg, carrot, onion, garlic, herbs, and tomatoes to layer over the cabbage,
and layered a mixture of tomato juice, lemon juice, seasoning, and sugar over that.


Then I repeated layers of meat, cabbage, and juices.


I have no pics of it after that because we were starving and ate it up as soon as it was done, but it was great. I love the slight sweetness in it. Only drawback is that my children have discovered they don't like couscous, which is crazy.
