Sorry. Yes, someone posted a big pic of Trader Joe's steak and ale pies they were having that night. Looked good. I bought. Was that you? Anyways, back then, there was flour, meat and ale and nothing else. So I'm not surprised there's not vegetables in them....they were probably a luxury back then.

meat is a luxury. veggies aren't unless they are exotic or hard to find in your locale.

I meant back then it was meat, and flour and probably ale. If vegetables were available, then great.

Had to be something quick - got home late. So I had some of the raw grated beetroot 'salad' I made yesterday (just with lemon juice, garlic, some harissa and tomato ketchup) with a small crusty baguette that had boursin and some chorizo styled deli sliced meat. Oh alongside a hunk of cucumber that I ate caveman style, i.e. unsliced!

I never heard of it before coming here either Bucky, although cabbage was a staple growing up in my Irish/German childhood. Our beloved Kades turned me on to it, Fried Cabbage TNT What a remarkable and generous cook she was.
I've adapted it many times, like with dinner tonight.

LOL Back then, where? Meat has always been a luxury everywhere, even now. These are not suppose to be anything other than American made, and we do have ale.

DH and I drove up to Wallops Island earlier today to see the Antares rocket launch. Unfortunately it was scrubbed at the last minute because of a sailboat in the hazard area We had some nachos up there and are now having some leftover chicken-potato chowder.

bt, for a real culinary treat, add fried noodles to the fried cabbage. In that case, fry each in a bit of butter in separate pans until each is a bit golden. We actually fry the noodles until some get a little crispy. (If you try frying the noodles with the cabbage it won't crisp up.) Once each item is fried, mix together and eat. Makes a perfect Fridays-in-Lent dinner for Himself and me.

*******************************


I cut up: one green and three non-green peppers, an onion, a zucchini, and chicken Italian sausage and tossed it all into the oven. We ate small salads while dinner baked.
