... swear it was cabbage. looked like
cabbage, felt like cabbage, this head
i picked up at the grocery store. got
it home, rinsed it off, sliced it up ---
sliced like cabbage.
was so looking forward to kapushta.
when i put it in the pan with a bit of
margerine to fry it up, it didn't smell
like cabbage. didn't smell bad, but
didn't smell ... right. my twin sister
even noticed it.
was so looking forward to kapushta.
put some onion in the pan. cabbage
and onion to go with the keilbasa and
egg noodles. that's when it hit me ---
was was supposed to be cabbage
was not cabbage at all:
anyone for fried lettuce and noodles?

|Karla, maybe it wasn't cabbage...but it sure looks good in that photo!|

|hah! -- what a funny story -- this sounds like something that should have happened to me -- did I ever tell you about the time my father, who was ninety-one at the time -- cooked up a big pot of potpourri, and ate it! -- he said it was very tasty! -- he said he thought it was a package of dried soup preparation! -- whew, we laughed a long time and still do every time we recall the incident -- so lettuce, isn't so bad -- peace dear lady -- JMW|

|Karla, if it tastes as good as it looks in the picture,then nothing is loss. Sure would like to have your recipe--it sounds great.|

|Karla, sounds pretty good to me. How's it done?

|LOL! I think we've all had our share of culinary mistakes, Karla. Did you gals eat it?

|I'm dying, Karla! What a hoot! So one night, my family was having a movie night. Half an hour through the movie, I dutifully get up and run out to do all the irrigating (about 45 min), but I get back in time for the end of it-- Wuthering Hights-- I blob what looks like mashed potatoes on my plate, spoon on what looks like gravy, take a bite, and keel over dead. Cause of death: minced parsnips saturated with banana pudding!
If it's not the taste, then the surprise of the unexpected could get ya! Well, at least it looked pretty! --Charlie

|Now you've got me craving Kapusta, Kielbasa, and Pierogis. I best go shoppin myself today!|

|Karla, you are speaking to the converted here and I'd hate to tell you what abuses I've shown to food over the years and the hideous combinations I've subjected myself and others to, at least yours sounds edible, almost appetising, but I'll settle for the egg noodles if you don't mind.

|I can certainly emphazize with this, when my mother in law who lived with us got older she still wanted to help out by cooking supper for my wife and I as we both worked...the menu for supper that night was to be corned beef and cabbage but failing eyesight produced as you might guess corned beef and lettuce. lol

|In my old enormous garden + poverty days I used to do do this with the mountains of excess lettuce I had. But for your kapushta the texture would be wrong, and the taste is so mild. (I'd put soy sauce on it, dump it over brown rice and we'd eat it. Pretend Chinese!)|

|lol. Have you been in my kitchen? It sounds like it. Put some ranch dressing on it and I'll have a go at it. Love it. Liz|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|... so you cook with imagination and flair?! I bet it tasted wonderful! :)) Having edited a load of cookbooks in my time, I will cook with about anything and everything and pay little heed to recipe ingredients, so this cheers me enormously. Mind you, it could explain why my visitors stick to tap water and a biscuit when they come to my house, but at least that makes entertaining relatively cheap! Go you... can't wait to try your chilli carrotcake! :)) xx|

|I never had this happen with lettuce or cabbage, but I did make something my family refers to as "Barf Cake" once. Rebecca|

|Sounds like something I would do if I could cook.
Love the way you go from crisis to crisis, Karla.
Think I'll fix myself a BLCEE sandwich. -gene
