>See that? It’s cabbage and kielbasa and it’s for dinner as soon as I finish this post. With egg noodles cooked in chicken stock on the side!

Update: Not half bad, though next time I’ll cook the cabbage — bagged “coleslaw mix” — about half as long. Maybe a minute or two at high-ish heat with red wine or cider vinegar and a dabba sugar, then add in the kielbasa for about as long, reduce heat, cover and ignore for 10 – 15 minutes.

Start for this was a couple slices of bacon, well-peppered; cook, set aside. Add some olive oil to the bacon fat, heat and add the cabbage with sliced onion. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of sugar and enough tasty vinegar; stir ’round and add some garlic (Mrs. Dash — I cheated), caraway seed, red pepper flakes, paprika and a dash of Worcestershire sauce — seasoned salt if you like — followed, in due course, by the kielbasa and there you are.

Blamed if I’ll tell you how to cook noodles in chicken stock; you can pour sand out of a boot, right? 😉

    >None of the above: it's sold in plastic-lined boxes, like cheap wine. Darned if I'll let some chicken lounge the day away in hot water just so I can make rice or noodles; they sell that stuff already made up.

    >Ah, kielbasa.Reminds me of the time I went with a couple of co-workers to this hole-in-the-wall bar in downtown Baltimore for their sausage and beer special.Best damn food I ever ate, regardless of the dive-like surroundings and the feeling that I really, really should have brought a gun to that neighborhood…

    >Trader Joe's has an excellent turkey kielbasa. Flavorful and succulent, but with a fraction of the calories and fat. Ees muy delicioso.

    >I prefer my cabbage pickled; one of my favorite meals is kielbasa browned and then shallots and sauerkraut mixed in and lightly sautéed.
