Potatoes, Apples, Onions & Cabbage
De Mackey chil’ren doan much like cabbage. Miz Ginny is right partial to it. I made up dis here recipe t’ stave off a fight ’bout eatin’ yo’ vegetab’es. When Sallee said “Ethel can even make cabbage taste good. She’s a genius I was right proud of myself . I think it’s good too, an’ if yo put po’kchops wit’ some salt an’ pepper on top of the apples, you got yo’self a mighty tasty one-dish dinner. Without de po’kchops, it goes good with a roast, too.
