Meatless Rumbledethumps

I can't believe I'm actually posting step-by-step directions for the simplest thing in the world-but here we go.

1). Look in icebox. Assess leftovers.

2). If you don't already have them, make mashed potatoes.

3). Grate some sharp cheddar cheese.

4). Finely shred some cabbage (if you don't already have leftover) and dice some onions. Cook in butter until soft.

In a large casserole dish, layer the cooked cabbage, onions, and other vegetables (I had carrots and peas). Top with a layer of mashed potatoes. Dot with butter. Top with cheddar cheese. Douse with paprika so your weirdo family will eat it (I don't know why the paprika/potato thing is so important to them, but I attribute it to some strange, Pennsylvania Dutch heritage thing in Mr. ETB's mother's family). Bake it, covered in a 350 degree F. oven for 30 minutes. remove cover, bake 10-15 minutes longer. Serve hot, (though it ain't too bad cold either).

I do believe I'll be making this one. Sounds easy and cheap. And if there's one way to describe me, it's easy and cheap.

Tonight I used the leftover, leftovers to make pan-fried potato cakes (rolled them in flour, fried them in butter). They have no idea they're still eating the same thing, over and over and over...
