Just in case.... are looking for something to serve that will help with celebrating the Chinese New Year, here is something that I will share with you.

Chinese-style Csbbage!

This is a recipe that I have made for many years!  It comes from Betty Crocker's Dinner for Two Cookbook from 1964.  While Friday was the date marked as the Chinese New Year, this is always good to eat!

1 Tablespoon oil, canola or olive
3 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 cup chopped celery
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
- Heat oil in skillet.  Drop in vegetables; stir well.  Cover tightly.  Steam 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring several times.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.  4 serving.

There have been some comments from new followers!   Welcome, and thank you for reading along!

It that groundhog had been here on February 2, he would not have seen his shadow.  We woke to fog, clouds, and a misty rain all day.  The rain is to continue for the first part of the week, so perhaps we will make up some of our shortage of precipitation for the year.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. That looks good and very healthy. Thanks for sharing this. I'll sure will try that.

  7. I grew up eating a lot of cooked cabbage so it is not a favorite of mine. This recipe is different though and I certainly would love to taste it. Set a place for me please as I will put on my snow shoes and be right there.

  8. Happy Year of the Horse! I was in Josie's second grade classroom this morning doing a lesson. So much fun. Thank you for the recipe. I'm always looking for more ideas.

    Our groundhog saw ours bright and clear. xo Diana

  13. Hmmm, that looks interesting and worth a try. It's always fun to try something new. Yup - 6 more weeks of winter. M says it would be 6 more weeks anyway, even if the groundhog kept quiet.

  14. Hi Nellie!
    We woke to fog, clouds, and a misty rain on Groundhog Day too and he still saw his shadow AND I'm in Pennsylvania! Go figure!

    I just checked my calendar and February 17th is Cabbage Day, yes a day dedicated to cabbage, lol...I'll be saving this recipe for sure as I have no idea where my Betty Crocker book is, lol...

    Thanks for sharing, Nellie...
