Busy, Busy

The past few days have been busy ones here on the old homestead.

I pulled out two heads of cabbage from the freezer yesterday and got to work making cabbage rolls. First, after the heads of cabbage thawed, I removed the leaves.

Then I proceeded to mix up the filling. Four pounds of ground beef, 2 cups of rice, salt, pepper and 2 diced onions.

All mixed together and ready to go.

The cabbage rolls ready to go in the oven. This is a picture of the last 2 roasters ready to put in the oven when the first two come out.

I opened a can of tomato juice to pour over top. Seventy-five cabbage rolls in total were made, some of which we had for supper. The rest were put into tin foil containers, cooled down, labeled and placed in the chest freezer.

Done for another year.

The rest of my days have been spent picking tomatoes, cucumbers and working on unfinished projects. Things are moving along just fine.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Sounds like your garden is doing well!

  2. Mmmmm....my aunt makes the world's BEST cabbage rolls (gumpke?) as we call them....however I have NO idea how to spell it. I should really try making them, although I would have to do it while DH is out as he can't stand the smell of cooking cabbage. While I, personally, could LIVE on cabbage! Every vacation he takes me to the Irish Pub so I can get corned beef and cabbage without "stinking up the house". Gotta love the guy!
