As I mentioned yesterday I had made a beautiful big pot of pumpkin soup which kept on giving, so it was another week of not really cooking a lot, which I just loved. There is something to be said for having dinner already sorted at the beginning of your day. I also made a big pot of cabbage rolls which fed us for two nights as well. I love this dish but I didn't have a recipe for it, I did have a good look though, hoping it would be amongst the reams of loose, hand written recipes, from my husbands Nanna and Grandmother. But unfortunately it wasn't.
All the recipes I found online weren't really close to what I remember, so I just went on memory. It was lovely Hubby's Mum that actually used to make it, but the original recipe was from Gran. Lovely Hubby's late Mum was a wonderful cook but she didn't have recipes for all the dishes she made, in fact now that we have started to go through some of the stuff in her home (next door to us) I haven't seen one recipe book! How funny! Never mind, the cabbage rolls turned out pretty close to how I remember having them and everyone enjoyed them. They were lovely and warming to have on a cold night.
