Hearty stuff

A few pieces of bacon were left, after most of the pack went to make appies for the party last night. By luck, half a red cabbage was in the fridge. A slow-cooked cabbage dish made the house smell good and feel cozier – especially appreciated because it snowed today. Psychologically, the white stuff always makes it seem colder than it is.

Mititei (mee-tee-tay), a Romanian dish, is a relative of meatballs. We had some in the freezer, so we turned on the oven and baked those, even though they’d usually be cooked on the barbecue. Perogies seemed the just-right accompaniment.

Mmm. Happiness. Food that makes me want to hibernate.
