I know this is not my recipe blog but it's the conversation that matters. While I was cooking tonight, I wondered if other long married couples have conversations like this. (You newlyweds have this to look forward to someday.)
My husband asked me what I was making for dinner, so I told him " I'm doing something with ground beef". I'm infamous for taking things from the refrigerator and throwing them together with ground beef (or chicken). My daughter has inherited the same gene, for better or for worse. Our experiments usually turn out quite tasty, though.
So...I'm telling my husband I'll probably throw in some chopped cabbage because I have one that needed to be used, also a green pepper for the same reason, oh...there's brown rice in the freezer and I can put in a can of tomatoes and it will be like stuffed cabbage mixed with stuffed green pepper (it sounds terrible but it turned out great).
Which led him to asking me if it was my mom or his mom that always made the stuffed cabbage. Uh...I don't remember, one of them made stuffed cabbage and the other stuffed green pepper.
So...where was that restaurant where we always had that good stuffed cabbage? Uh...I don't remember although I do know there was such a restaurant, perhaps the ***** Cafeteria?
Sigh...a brain is a terrible thing to waste. I miss mine.
