Cabbage Soup Recipe

My Mom used to make this cabbage soup when I was younger. I loved it!

Which is something since my Mom really wasn't a great cook, like my Dad but she tried. My younger siblings don't remember the soup, so must not have been one of their favorites. Well I made my own version of it and it cam out excellent.....{J} had 2 big bowls. Here is my recipe:

Helena's Polish Cabbage Soup

1} Half a head of a large cabbage, sliced up

2} 2 onions,sliced but not too small

3} 5 garlic cloves...{ I love garlic, so more or less is OK}

4} 2 cans fat free Chicken broth {28oz total}

5} 1 can of Hunt's Petite diced tomatoes {140z.}

6} 8 0z each of Velveeta cheese, 1 plain, 1 Pepper jack cheese

7} 3 cups water

8} optional : I threw in a cup of corn, a cup of green beans {frozen}

Cook until cabbage is tender, Put in the cheese last.

If any one makes it let me know what you think, It definitely was a favorite in my house. It has a little bite to it with the Pepper jack cheese.

Well now it's off to see what the day unfolds for me....Happy Trails!!!

Maybe you can help me out with something…? I want to order all of my food online from now on because of various reasons, but I don’t know where to go for quality food. I have tried 2 companies so far, Fresh Dining, and and Celebrity Foods, but I wanna get others I can try out. Do you know of any? The main thing I’ve ordered so far is steak. I guess you can say, I’m a steak junkie. LOL!!! From what I have found out (from what I have ordered so far) I think I am able to regulate the quality of beef I buy. I hate going to a store and getting that crappy slab of beef that I have to cut down until there is like nothing left. Hahaha!!!! (its so true though) Anyhow, sorry that I made this comment so long. If you can help me out or point me in a direction where I might find more quality foods online, I would greatly appreciate it. Have a good day or night! (depending on when you read this) LOL!!!!

I am lucky I have a great butcher here at the local Price Chopper. But If I was you I would find a butcher, or a farm that harvests its beef, and I am sure there is some Organic places out there. Not knowing where you are located all I can do is guess of places. Have you tried Jenny Craig,,,not joking but they do have meals, also Omaho meats. Hope that helps.
