Lexxi said:Thank you for the info. I threw away the bag after I ate the rest of it, so I had no way to see what it was...at least until I go to the store and get another bag of it. I'm really glad I pick all that stuff out now though, because I hate cabbage. I do have a funny story about cabbage though.
When I was in college I took a Biology class. We were split up into groups and had to do a presentation on a food that goes through some process of biology in its making (or something like that I can't really remember what the project was).
I chose the Korean dish Kimchi. It goes through what I'll describe as a rotting process before it's complete. It's utterly disgusting and smells even worse than that. The way I picked Kimchi was because I saw it on an episode of MASH way back in the day. I knew that you put the stuff in a pot in the ground and let it rot in there before it's ready to gag down.
I wrote the entire presentation myself, did all the PowerPoints, and even wrote a half-assed script for the guy who was going to be doing the presentation. There was a girl in our group who loved to cook and she said she'd make some kimchi for the class to try.
My ex cooked cabbage once so I knew how bad that girl's house was going to smell. When she offered to cook it for the group I asked her if she'd ever cooked cabbage before and she said no. I told her to enjoy her experience. ;D ;D
She really learned an important lesson about volunteering to do stuff that day. She said her house was still stinking and her dad was still mad about it too. ;D ;D ;D
We're friends on Facebook and we'll chat occasionally and she never fails to bring the Kimchi up when we do.
I don't know what your mom did to the Sauerkraut, but whenever I or my son had/have to bring dish to pass, we are asked to do Sauerkraut we do it at the lower Rhineland/Dutch border area. It is finger licking good, when done right!Lexxi said:Hi Kirsten,
There's no chance I'd ever eat sauerkraut again. My mom fixed that once when I was younger and she forced both my brother and I to at least try it...neither one of us did. I guess I'll never be a cabbage eater.
I have yet to see any American cook preparing sauerkraut properly! For German speaking people it is nothing but a raw vegetable that needs to be cooked properly in the proper way. Most Americans, who served sauerkraut to me either served it cold without any preparation, or they simply heat it up a little and slap it onto your plate. Like any other raw vegetable, it can be prepared in a variety of different ways, which turn it into a delicious part of a dinner.Katie said:I like red cabbage, but I don't like sauerkraut.

FOOD for thought !
Kind regards, Kirsten.
Donica said:Sounds great Kirsten! However, I'm with Lexxi on this on. "I really think my taste buds are allergic to anything containing cabbage." Although, it's not the cabbage that my taste buds are allergic too, it's the sauerkraut I am allergic too. Ever since I was a little girl. Maybe I can substitute the sauerkraut with plain cabbage?
I'll give it a go.
I noticed the glow as well ! All of you are looking great ! A bunch of gorgeous babes all of you ! Lots of GLOW UP going on around here.I’ve noticed the change in you. I was just thinking about that at Zoom on Saturday. I remember the first time I met you a few months ago. You do seem to have more of a glow to you, face seems thinner, more feminine as you go.
Your doing great sister keep up the plan, it’s working for you. And good luck on the new job.
