  1. one thing we love to do with cabbage is to roast it. Cut into small strips/ wedges and coat with salt pepper and olive oil. put on a cookie sheet. Set the oven for 415 and cook for about 15 min or so, until wilted and a little brown. SOOOOO yummy!

  2. HEy Allison, THat does sounds often, I just stare at the cabbage in my fridge and say, "not another slaw" ..please" But I have found new inspiration in the vegetable...thanks!
