You know out of my 54 yrs, one thing I have never eaten is lamb? I tried goat once and YUK didn't like it. I remember my dad telling me growing up that lamb was like eating a mouth full of cotton. I know I have watch so many chefs make it on the cooking channel and it always looks really good. I've also heard that you really have to know what kind of spices to use on lamb. I would appreciate you'll opinion.

I am making something I have never had before(believe it or not), Kielbasa, cabbage with new red potatoes, buttered seeded rye bread and green beans on the side. I am still unsure how I am going to cook this. A lot of recipes call for cooking in bacon grease. I think that would taste good, however I want to avoid any more fat. I did buy "lite" kielbasa. Maybe I will use a little chicken broth????

I realize I might be too late, since it's after 5:30 here.

I like to slice my kielbasa in big chunks, as well as the cabbage. I put the cabbage in a greased baking pan/casserole dish (the size depends on how many servings you are making) and lay the kielbasa on top. Then, I drizzle it with a little oil, cider vinegar and a sprinkling of caraway seeds. That gets baked, covered, @375 for about 45 minutes (ovens vary). For the oil, you can use olive oil, but I think the taste is better with Canola oil (that is also healthy).

Any kind of potatoes go well with cabbage and kielbasa! Below is a picture of a past meal, and I used peeled red potatoes. FYI, I baked them in a separate pan (tossed in oil, garlic powder and salt) for the same amount of time. Of course, how thick your slices are determine cooking time.
