Sour Cabbage and Sausage Skillet
The digital clock on our nightstand finally started telling the correct time again as of 2:00 am this morning. Yes, it’s true, neither Tony nor I had bothered to change the time for the last six months so unfortunately for me when the clock read 5:08 am this morning the snooze button was not an option. I arrived at work to find the grease-covered vents that suck up the smoke from the grill had been soaking overnight and were happily waiting for me to clean and replace them before I could cook anything. I just love early morning surprises, don’t you?
By the time I got home I was feeling slightly ogrish and hungry so I turned my thoughts towards dinner. I was envisioning something akin to vinegary cabbage, rice, beer, mustard and sausage but definitely nothing involving a pile of smelly sauerkraut (Gross). I had never cooked rice in beer before but you’d better believe it was one of the better decisions I have made. In with the beer went some apple juice and vinegar, sweet potatoes, a honkin pile of purple cabbage and some hot sausage.
Sweet mother it was so good. We sat on the couch while an episode of How I Met Your Mother played in the background and we ate. And ate and then went back for more. And I thought to myself, maybe daylight savings isn’t so bad after all. Which it really is but this sour cabbage and sausage skillet will almost make up for it.
