I feel left behind on the food-blog front, so I thought I'd give you all the simplest recipe I know and can do well: haluski!
Haluski is a traditional eastern European dish with a few cheap main ingredients: cabbage, noodles, and butter (plus onions, usually). I like to make it for the potluck dinner night at church because it's simple, doesn't take long, and can be healthy depending on how much butter is used.
one medium green cabbage
one medium white onion
one bag of egg noodles, 12-16 oz
butter, to taste
Today's optional ingredients:
1/2-1 green pepper
Add noodles and cook to desired firmness
Chop onion (and other veggies) into small pieces
Saute cabbage and vegetables separately using butter, vegetable oil, or olive oil (preferred)
Add garlic and other spices to taste (or after combining everything)
Add sauteed cabbage and vegetables to noodles
Add spices again, to taste
Add butter, to taste (approximately 1/2 stick)
