BASIC MAYHEM

Anniversaries— perfect excuse for German food
Kathy Cooke

On April 29, my brother Ken Esten and wife Christine Granados celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary.

My husband Bill is the “Anniversary Reminder Fairy” (he doesn’t like it when I call him the Anniversary Reminder Fairy, but I think it’s funny so too bad.)

Anyway, every year he emails or calls brother Ken and tells him it’s his anniversary and every year Ken says a word that I can’t repeat here.

So in honor of Ken and Christine’s 18th wedding anniversary, Bill and I celebrated in by eating German food.

See, Ken and Christine live in Fredericksburg so, German food, get it? Plus we love German food and will eat it for any excuse at all.

So Happy Anniversary Ken and Chris! Live long and prosper.

Speaking of German food, I spied this recipe the other day and boy does it sound good.

I would, of course, add the ever-popular potato side dish to go with it. I mean, if you’re going to have indigestion, you might as well go all out, right?

Fried Cabbage and Sausage

1 stick butter or margarine
1 small head of cabbage,
chopped
1 small green pepper, chopped
or cut into strips
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound polish sausage, sliced
into round pieces (can use
smoked sausage) I use Hillshire
Farm.
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
few drops of hot sauce (optional)

Melt butter in large skillet.
Add cabbage, onion, and green
pepper and cook on medium
high for about 5 minutes stirring to keep from sticking to
pan.
Add remaining ingredients,
cover and simmer for 20 – 25
minutes. Makes about 8 servings –kc–
The “Weather Powers That
Be” are saying that by the time
the paper comes out, it will be a
bit chilly again.
Even more reason to stay
inside, nest and cook. Maybe a
big pot of soup or stew would do
the trick.
And always remember, when
cooking something yummy at
your house, call me and I’ll
come eat with you.
No point in eating alone!
