Something a little different for you

 Today, instead of a landscape update (only because it's close to being done and I want to do a 'reveal'), how about a recipe?  We had this one over the weekend and it was delicious!



SLOW COOKER SWEET & SOUR CABBAGE

1 medium head cabbage (red or green...we used red) -  shredded
2 onions, chopped
4 tart apples, peeled and quartered
1/2 c. raisins
1/4 c. lemon juice
1/4 c. apple juice
3 T. honey
dash of allspice
1/2 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.
Cover and cook on high 3 - 5 hours or until
vegetables are tender


- THIS is really a meaningful project and turned out so beautifully.  This link takes you to the final steps for the project but you can find all the rest by scrolling down - they're free until the end of the year.

- I came across THIS great resource for both knitters and crocheters.  A ton (!!!) of free access magazines and pattern booklets that you can look through.  Better make yourself a whole pot of either tea or coffee and leave bread crumbs out so people will know where you are.  Just sayin'.....

- Most of the creations of THIS artist made me say 'awww'.

- And, just so you can never say there isn't a mixed bag of content here at Chez Magpie, how about THIS article about keeping your coleus plants over winter.  

Today's quote..."Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on"

  1. Sweet and Sour Cabbage! Delicious! I wonder if how it would be as a sauce, pureed in a blender.
    The magazine archive is fantastic.

    1. I don't know how it would work as a sauce, but it's certainly worth a try!

  2. First of all I love the quote! And I enjoyed the puppy portraits. And the rooting plants post was very interesting. My Grandmother-in-law, who was the loveliest person I ever met would actually root plants in a similar fashion but she literally just stuck them in the dirt and they grew! Talk about a green thumb. I am fortunate that I still have children from her Mother of Millions plant (which she called "Pregnant Plant"). She passed over 30 years ago and I still miss her....

    1. My mother could do that with plants too - and she had one of those plants for years. I, of course, killed it promptly when I inherited it from her. I didn't know what it was called so I 'did a google' to find out more.

  4. Boy, you're not kidding about leaving crumbs when clicking on that second link. Now, if I could just get a quality download. I remember finding lots of cross stitch patterns in this archive earlier this year, but getting a good enough image to wok from was hit or miss. That said, I'm intending to lose myself in there again - looking at crochet patterns now. :)

  5. Internet archive is a great resource for audiobook, old radio plays, videos and now you're showing us great mags. Some of them are vintage. Thanks for this link.

    1. This is the first time I've stumbled upon the internet archive so it's interesting to know that they have a number of different genres.

  9. I LOVE sweet and sour cabbage. My mom used to make split pea soup a lot and always had sweet and sour cabbage in the bottom of the bowl. We love cabbage at our house. Try sautéing apples and bacon with cabbage....so good!

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
