Grateful for the invention of the microwave and crock pot!!!!

Today was the Kirby Hookin and before leaving this morning, I put a corned beef and some veggies in the crockpot.">A Year of Slow Cooking: Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Vegetables Recipe We tried this recipe last year and loved how the corned beef AND veggies turned out.

I cook my cabbage in the microwave, nuking it is sooooo much better than boiling it for a couple of reasons.
1. Although there is a slight smell from the cooking cabbage it is nothing like the smell that happens from boiling cabbage on the stove.
2. Quick and easy, and can be done in the last few minutes as you are setting the table.

I usually cut up 1/2 cabbage for the two of us, putting it flat side down in a Corning ware bowl that is just the right size. 1/2 cup of water and some plastic wrap over the top. Cook on high for between 8-10 minutes(depending on the size of the cabbage). The finished cabbage is crisp tender and somewhat sweet. Melt a pat of butter over the top or spray some I can't believe... delish!

So off to serve dinner, after playing for most of the day. :)
