I think I may have a new favorite "put this in everything" foodstuff:

shredded cabbage

I bought a package of "cole slaw mix" on a whim the other day, in a hurry to get home and make dinner for the family (which is why I didn't just buy a head of cabbage and shred it myself). I intended to make tacos that night, and I know that in warm climates, they often use shredded cabbage instead of lettuce because it doesn't wilt so quickly.

Well, the kids ate it up, they loved the extra crunchiness and mild flavor.
And I was happy because I know it's nutritious. Score.

Now I'm munching on a sandwich, which I threw a little of the shredded cabbage onto for extra crunchy munchy goodness. Glad I did. I often used to dress a sandwich with cole slaw, but the extra fat in the dressing isn't quite so desirable. This is going to be good.

Of course, when my wife saw the bag of shredded cabbage she asked me to make some homemade cole slaw for her this weekend. I'll enjoy doing that too. :)

There are some great asian recipes for shredded spicy cabbage that are good too. No fermenting required.

Spicy cabbage in egg rolls. Yummy.

With half a bag of shredded cabbage left, we made cole slaw. Since we only let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours for the flavors in the dressing to meld, the cabbage itself was still nice and crunchy when we ate the slaw.
It was really good. We'll be doing this again.

If someone receives free cheese in the mail, it may be from me.

Ok, so there are quite FEWER "Thin Mints" in the box this year. Did they think we wouldn't notice? I'm gonna have to learn to make these things myself instead of getting ripped off by the Girl Scouts every year. For what they charge for a couple of boxes I could buy an enrobing machine.

I also noticed the Boy Scouts tins of popcorn are much smaller this year... they used to have the can that was >1ft tall... now the cans (for the same price as the large can last year) is only appx 8" tall...

A girl scout leader pointed out that the Girl Scouts lock in the price of a box of cookies for five years with the bakeries, so the bakeries are forced to downsize the boxes to compensate for the increasing price of ingredients.

Seems rather stupid to lock in a price and not lock in the size of the box.

At some point I may just start making a cash donation to the troop instead.

Heh. I've been bringing the topic up lately with friends and family and it seems everyone missed it this year. I'm going to have to remedy this.

I don't know if you can actually *get* corned beef outside of the real St. Patrick's Day. If not then I will have to make it from scratch.

(And I can use the leftover saltpeter to make smoke bombs.)

I'm fairly certain you can get them outside of the holiday.

My local grocery store sells them next to the steaks. (at least i think so)
