What’s for Dinner Wednesday – Easy Peasy

ala the Nora

I really didn’t know what was for dinner until about 2 p.m., hence why the dinner post is so late. First up… halushki. It’s a quick, easy dish just like gramma used to make. Well, almost. I use butter instead of bacon.

  • 1 head cabbage
  • 1 sweet onion ( some people don’t use it)
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 bag of egg noodles

Slice your cabbage and onions thin, throw in a covered frying pan with the butter, cover and cook over low heat. You can serve as soon as the cabbage softens, or let it simmer for hours.

Make half a bag of the wide egg noodles, strain and toss with the cabbage. Sprinkle with a little sugar – don’t ask, just do- and serve!

If you want it just like gram’s… get bacon ends at your meat counter, about a quarter pound or so, fry it up and leave all the grease and bacon right there in the pan. 😀 Yummy, but my arteries are hardening just thinking about it.

I went all out today and even made a dessert. A simple fruit crisp

  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Fresh or frozen fruit of your choice – I used fresh peaches and blueberries

Arrange your fruit in a shallow 2-quart baking dish (an 8×8 is perfect).

Sprinkle with lemon juice. In a bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over fruit.

Bake at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes, or until your fruit is tender. Oh yeah… don’t forget the ice cream!

  1. Call me when dinner’s over, so I can come over for dessert. 😉 Just don’t breathe cabbage breath (or worse) on me. =)

  2. Dan looked at the pictures and said YUM. Me, too. Especially for fruit crisp with ICE CREAM. Yummers.

    Okay, come over and cook at my house any day. 😀


    I’ve never made it with bacon though…I find that…intriguing. Or sugar, that’s weird.

    I do eat it with a generous glop of sour cream, though. Mmmm…polish comfort food!

  4. Well, I have never heard of Halusky but I am craving it now! It sounds DELISH (In rachael ray speak) (ugh)
    That is the way to eat your fruit!

  5. Huh. Cabbage and noodles – and I thought kashka was odd! But I’ll bet that’s damn good, and I, for the record, would use the bacon!

    The fruit crisp is a work of art.

  6. Halushki? That’s what it is called? I make a very similar quickie meal I heard about years ago at Weight Watchers. It uses a package of ramen noodles, cooked and drained, a few handfuls of shredded cabbage/cole slaw mix, the seasoning from the ramen, and an egg scrambled in at the end. Mmmmm.
