Classic Stuffed Cabbage Rolls.

Friday 23rd September 2011

Yet another inspiring meal from Edible Tapestry.

Thanks. 🙂

Everything I cook takes an hour. Whether it be a lasagne or cheese on toast it seems to take me 60 minutes to get it from the fridge to the plate. I don’t know if my shepherd pie is cooked in record speed or if a good salad should be done slowly. Either way it frustrates me.

This dish should have been relatively easy. All it is is raw mince, cooked rice, some dried herbs & some blanched cabbage leaves. I didn’t encounter any particular problems during the process & still it took me the prerequisite 1 hour to put together, & that was with the rice already cooked.

If I’m honest, I’m lucky that I can spend an hour doing something I enjoy. There are plenty of other tasks that take as long which aren’t what I would choice to do given half the chance.

Zephy sauntered to the table in just a pair of pants. He prefers to not dress for dinner in the summer months.

“What’s that?” He asked.

“Stuffed cabbage leaves,” I told him. “What do you think?”

He sat down & cut off a piece of the roll. In fact we all did so at the same time.

“Wow wee!,” I said. “That…is…amazing.”

“That’s lovely Jon.” Said my wife with a look of surprise on her face. “What D’you think Zeph?”

“Yeah, I can’t get them on my fork.” He replied struggling with a piece of cabbage.

“Now there’s a quote, if ever I’ve heard one.” I said ploughing in. 😉



About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    What an amazing tasty dish. These were so so flavoursome. Let`s have them again too! Oh yes and the aubergines were lovely and melty in the mouth too. Wonderful!
