|Grandma Bunni's Cabbage Soup ~ A super easy & really tasty soup that's simple to make. A wonderful soup for the chilly nights of autumn.|
Cabbage Soup. It's a simple & easy to prepare soup that is full of the flavors I remember from my childhood. It just so happens, a few weeks ago J & I found some late season cabbages to harvest over at the Community Garden. This recipe was the perfect way to use them!
When I was cooking this soup, its aroma filled the kitchen & I was taken back, probably 20+ years, to the last time I enjoyed a bowl of this comforting homemade soup. I'm so glad that I found Grandma Bunni's old Cabbage Soup recipe & I'm looking forward to finding other recipes of hers. I have a habit of stashing recipes (those written on slips of paper) in random cookbooks & it seems she did the same thing, too.
Who knows what, where and/or when I'll find the next recipe of hers. Let me just say, I get such a kick out of sharing old family recipes, it makes my heart happy. Grandma Bunni is now gone, but it's like she's still in the kitchen with me when I use her old, handwritten recipes... and I like that, I like it a lot. :)
