A few days ago I mentioned I’d never realized how much work it takes to make stuffed cabbage. Well, it must have been a breeze last time I made it, because a) there was a last time, and b) Andrea has graphic proof!!! Because I made it for Passover, it must have been a matzoh-meal-based filling. Thanks for helping me out in the memory department, Andrea!
This year, aside from the traditional apple crisp, we didn’t make anything we’ve made in the past. Specifically, A did NOT make his famous Pecan Loaf out of the Deaf Smith Country Cookbook. After taking a small poll, he decided it was OK to branch out. This met with some comment at the dinner table, as several of the young’ns demanded to know where the pecan loaf was. As Dante said, "Every year, people ask me what we eat at a vegetarian Thanksgiving, and I always say, ‘Nut loaf.’ Now what will I have to say? Stuffed cabbage-zucchini casserole-stuffed squash-cheesey potatoes?" We all agreed there will NEVER be a Toferky on our table, but that perhaps next year there will be nut loaf.
Where’s the nutloaf?
