around the world the words "cabbage eaters", "potato eaters" and "garlic eaters" have historically been used to identify poor peasanty people.
yeah? well, get bent. aside from how wrong it is to criticize, humiliate, or dehumanize people on the basis of how much money they do or don't have, those foods are awesome.
want to know what i had for lunch today?
let's back up a little. some days ago i made cabbage and dumplings. this is kind of like the soul food of my pasty slovak ancestors. on the second day, you can take the leftover dumplings and pan fry them until they're browned and then put the heated up cabbage and onions over them.
but if you planned right, you still have some tasty cabbage and onions leftover.
skip to a different thread: i also made hotdogs, mashed potatoes and cheese. and i have leftover mashed potatoes.
so this is an awesome thing to do: stick some of the mashed potatoes in a skillet and fry them without stirring them until they're brown on one side. then flip them over and toss a little salt on. while you're waiting for the other side to brown, put the cabbage and onions in the pan and heat it up.
then slide your mashed potato pancake onto a plate and put the cabbage and onions over it.
oh, my. it is GOOD.
i have no pictures for you, because no matter how good it is, it doesn't look so pretty.
