Two Weeks of Cabbages

Of Cabbages and Kings

Last Sunday, back on the 10th and the last day of Spring Break, we made my family's sweet cabbage soup. Cabbage salad later in the week. Then this Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, so Mrs. Dr. Phil made her boiled dinner. Later in the week we'll turn some of the corned beef into Reuben sandwiches with sauerkraut.

The only cabbage we're missing is some decent kimchee -- and if we went out to an Asian grocery, we could add that in the mix, too. (grin)

Serious yum.

Boiled cabbage, potatoes and corned beef. With Coleman's Mustard, horseradish sauce and ground horseradish. And the amazing Guiness brownies. (Click on photo for larger.)

The Merge of Spring and Winter

We still have most of the pine trees that once made these several properties a Christmas tree farm of sorts. The neighbors on either side cut down their trees to make lawns. Alas, the neighbors to the east I don't think did anything to build up the ground and so right now from the property line to their driveway is a vast lake. We get a little flooding in amongst the trees.

That's not mostly snow, but the white is a reflection off the water. This shot is from Tuesday, the neighbor's yard in the background is all water now. (Click on photo for larger.)

Oh, and the Kliban cat with the basketball? It's NCAA Selection Day for the big dance. March Madness, baby...
