Kielbasa with Cabbage and Noodles

I found this recipe at Johnsonville Sausage.  I altered it a little to fit our taste.

5 cups cabbage,-chopped, 1 onion-diced, 1/4 cup butter, 1 package kielbasa chopped, small amount of jalapena pepper-chopped, 1 clove garlic-minced, 1 cup sliced mushrooms,  4 cups egg noodles cooked according to package directions.    In a large skillet saute cabbage, onion, pepper and garlic.   Add the kielbasa, noodles, salt and pepper.  Cook until heated through.

Snow

We are getting snow today.  It started out as rain, changed to sleet and now it is all snow.  Predictions are 4-6 in.  We’ll see.  Anyway, it looks pretty coming down. 

Tonights menu is meatloaf, cheesy pototoes, home canned green beans and fresh rolls.  The recipe I use for the meatloaf is:

2 lb hamburger, 2 tbsp bbq sauce, 1 cup milk, 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 sleeve crackers crushed, 1 egg, 1/2 cup chopped onion, salt and pepper to taste.  Bake for 1 hr 15 min at 400 degrees.  Topping for meatloaf- l cup ketchup, 1/2 cup brown sugar. 

Cheesy Potatoes:

In a casserole dish, layer sliced potatoes, chopped onions, salt, pepper, sprinkle on 1 tbsp flour, shredded cheddar cheese, shredded mozzarella–repeat layers pour 1 cup milk over the entire dish and bake at 400 degrees for 45 min or until pototoes are done.

It certainly will smell good in your home while these are baking.  Our rolls are baking as I type.  I think I am getting hungry.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
