Bacon cabbage

Had this just the other day at my mil's house. It sounds weird but give it a try and you'll be hooked.

Fry up 1/2 - 1# of bacon reserving grease.
wash and core cabbage, then cook it up in the bacon grease in a lg stock pot. Chunks of cabbage work best, not the indiv. leaves.
Add crumbled bacon near the end and salt if you wish.

Don't use too much grease or it will be soggy.

Zuchinni Casserole

Zuchinni Casserole

4 cups chopped zucchini
1 cup chopped onion
¼ cup water
2 tbs. butter or margarine
½ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
3 tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg, slightly beaten
¾ cup cracker crubs
2 tbs. butter or margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 1 quart casserole dish.
Put zucchini, onions and water in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well. Mash or puree vegetables until minced but not completely smooth. Stir in 2 tbs. butter, salt, pepper and parmesan. Cool slightly. Fold egg into zucchini mixture. Transfer to prepared pan. Toss cracker crumbs with melted butter. Sprinkle over top. Bake until crumbs are golden brown, about 30 minutes.


I got this recipe from our local newspaper's food section today.

Apple Burgers

Apple Burgers

1 cup minced onion
2 tart apples, grated
8 slices state or toasted sandwich bread
1 large bell pepper, seeded, chopped
1 tbs. minced fresh ginger
2 cups cooked white or brown rice
1 egg
6 tbs. rolled oats, ground in a blender or food processor
½ tsp. salt to taste
1 tbs. canoloa oil or more as needed
hot sauce
cole slaw

Put the onion in a large bowl. Squeeze the grated apples lightly to remove excess juice. Add apples to bowl. Chop the bread very fine or break it into pieces and whirl into crumbs in a food processor. Add the crumbs. Bell pepper, giner, rice, egg and half of the ground oats to the apple mixture. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
Form the mixture into four patties, each about 1 ½ inches thick. Place a large skillet over meadium heat. Add the oil. Coat the patties with remaining ground oats. Add to the skillet. Cook until lightly browned, adding more oil to the pan if necessary. Serve the burgers with hot sauce and cole slaw.

This recipe was in todays local newspaper.

LJsmom, I cook cabbage and kielbasa like your MIL recipe. Never thought of using bacon.

USES FOR CHEAP CANDY
Many stores have candy on sale for up to 90 percent off on the days following Halloween. This is a great time to stock up on candy you can use for other things. Hard candy is perfect for decorating a gingerbread house you bake at Christmastime. Or you can fill birthday party goody bags or pinatas with it. You can also reserve some of the kids trick-or-treat stash for holiday baking. M&Ms can be stand-ins for chocolate chips in cookies or as decorations on cut out cookies. Or chop milk-chocolate bars into "chips." Lollipops and hard candies can be crushed to make "stain glass" sugar cookies. Why buy more candy at full price later when you can plan ahead and be creative for much less?

I haven't gotten through all the posts so hopefully I won't be infringing on anyone. I see you mention kielbasa above and that's what is on the menu for dinner tonight. I bought kielbasa yesterday for $2.99/1lb. pkg. These are in a package of 5 like hot dogs, individual ones. The rope of kielbasa is $3.49/1lb. pkg. So check that out when buying it.
I boil some pasta, usually bowtie. Then I stirfry whatever veggies we have with some garlic and onion. Slice the kielbasa in and when it's all heated, add the pasta.
I like buying the holiday candy after the holidays, too. We've had halloween candy out at Easter time, Christmas candy at Valentines Day! Stores well in the freezer.
Another frugal meal is turkey cutlets or pounded out pieces with stuffing rolled up inside and baked. Yummy.

We always buy candy after any holiday. I have Easter bunnies in my freezer waiting to be turned into Christmas cookies. Kielbasa is always frugal. And always like no matter how it is fixed.
