So, wanted to make some cabbage soup last week. Didin’t like the look of the cabbages at the local market, so grabbed a bag of “coleslaw mix” (just shredded cabbage and carrots) that did look OK. Didn’t use chicken stock cos I had some ham base to work with. Also didn’t use bacon, as would ordinarily be my wont, cos had tons (well, seemed that way) of “pork butt” already cooked and on hand.
Had only four small potatoes, but had onion, garlic and etc.
You see where this is going? Yeh, made some pretty decent cabbage soup anyway, largely from substitutions and leftovers.
And the leftover cabbage soup ain’t half bad, either.
