Since having baby Vito, I’ve been trying to think of dinners that would be very easy to do, and most of what I come up with involve the slow cooker. While helping my mom move, we found some nice sausage that she kept meaning to use but just never got around to it, so she gave it to us. So, I know Daniel is a fan of his sausage and potatoes, and cabbage, so I thought why not throw it all together in the slow cooker with some broth and let it cook down all day.
First, I put the potatoes in, which I had seasoned with Salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder. Once they were in I cut the sausage and put those in there, and then on top of it all I put the cabbage, and then poured chicken broth over it all. This was the best part- put it on low, and just let it sit and cook all day! The sausage is precooked so you are really just marrying the flavors together, and cooking down the potatoes and cabbage.
- Package of Sausage (or 3-4 sausages)
- 4 Potatoes (I used Russets)
- Half a Cabbage (I had a small head)
- Salt, Pepper, Onion and Garlic Powder
- Half a white onion
Yes, its really that simple. No real measurements, just eyeball it. You honestly cant screw it up! Unless of course, your intentionally trying to, in which case… you have bigger problems.
The rest of the day was spent doing much needed household chores and getting my home back in order after having my little man. My room was a mess, the living room needed vacuuming badly and I think I had dirtied every dirty dish in my house. Thankfully, my little man sleeps amazingly and I was able to get a good chunk of it done by the time he woke up, and after feeding him was able to finish it.
I would of course periodically check on dinner, and twords the end kind of stir it together, and it was smelling wonderfully I must say! The broth flavored the cabbage, and while normally I am not a fan of cooked cabbage at all, it was wonderful! I had actually regretted not putting more in!
Due to having an infant, and having to be careful where he goes during this horrid flu season, I’ve been avoiding any kind of shopping, which means attempting to use anything I have in the house for as long as I possibly can. I’ve come up with some good meals, and I’ve came up with some funky ones that I like but my family isn’t a huge fan of. As to be expected when experimenting however.
