Pigs in a Blanket

Recipe Theme of the Month: Nostalgia Tweet This
Hey there! I've been thinking a lot about recipes my mom used to make, that I loved as a kid but never seem to serve as an adult. This isn't quite what she made, but it has the same flavor. My mom's version resembled cabbage burritos- with the meat and veggies as the filling, the cabbage as the wrap, and the sauces over top. This casserole version is put together a lot more easily!

1 lb. ground pork sausage
½ c. diced onion
½  c. diced green pepper
½ c. diced carrot
4 c. chopped cabbage, 1/2 head
1 c. uncooked regular white rice
1 can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
2 c. water
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 bay leaf
1 t paprika
Brown pork in large skillet, stirring to break up meat. Add onion, green pepper, cabbage, carrot and white rice. Stir in tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, and seasonings. Heat mixture to boiling, reduce heat, cover and simmer about 25 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir once or twice.

Be Yourself

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. ~e.e. cummings, 1955
