Cabbage Stew

Cabbage Stew

1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained

1 head green cabbage, sliced

1 onion, chopped

1 C. water

Salt & pepper to taste

8 oz. tomato sauce

15 oz. diced tomatoes

Brown the meat and drain in colander.  Cut cabbage head in half and then, cut into slices.  Place it into 6 quart pan with the onions and water.  Bring to a boil.  Add the browned meat and the tomato products.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Reduce heat and cover tightly with lid.  This can be served in bowls as a soup or on a plate.  The water can be increased to make it more soupy, but it will need more salt to season the added water.

My family loves this tasty “stew”.   This is good served with brown rice, unless a person is low carb/starch.  Some in my family like shredded cheddar on top of it.  Some of my family  like cajun seasoning added to their bowl.

Three Years and Counting!

Three years ago on July 12, 2010, Hannah Beals and I stopped eating sugar.  We attended a wedding on July 11 and that was our last sugar.  We had already made the decision days before and quite frankly, I did not enjoy the sugary food at the wedding, which made it easier to move forward the next day.  I praise the LORD for His faithfulness throughout these past three years.  HE has given us a new creativity to make recipes that are healthy and delicious!  HE has broken our addiction and bondage to sugar!  We have a freedom I never dreamed could exist.  I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for my sugar free life!

Psalm 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Yes, I can and DO rejoice in a life without sugar!

And, YES, I am still counting those days.  Today is Day 1097!
