Just a Taste

We haven't grown strawberries in over 20 years and then only in an old half barrel. Since I've expanded our garden area we thought it might be worth a try. Raised bed, 8X16 ft, 36 locally grown plants of 2 varieties. Not expecting a real crop this year but if we keep the weeds out and the soil watered we should have some to share next year. Only 2-3 pints for us this year and a handful or two for the birds.

Töltött Káposzta (Stuffed Cabbage)

As far as Hungarian cooks go, I'm well down the list, but when given fresh cabbage from Jim Orban's garden I had to make some of the good stuff. I added fresh pork sausage with the neck bones 'cause we had 'em.
Seems like we used to call this meal something like "podadishamu-kapu-shta".

Anyhow, a fitting meal for the day.
