Unstuffed Cabbage

I honestly didn't know what to call this.  It's basically all the ingredients for stuffed cabbage, but not stuffed in cabbage... Just all thrown in a pot.  It tastes like stuffed cabbage without all the rolling and stuffing.

Brown some ground beef

Chop some onions and a few cloves of garlic

Cut up some green cabbage

Saute onions and garlic in a little oil

Add cabbage and saute until it starts to get a little soft

Add a can of diced tomatoes - do not drain

Add 2 cans of V8 low sodium - you could also add a can of tomato sauce here which is what I intended on doing but I didn't have any

Add 1 package of parboiled rice (about 2 cups cooked) - brown or white - your choice

Everyone in the pot and add water until everything is covered

Cook down until all liquid is absorbed

This is what it will look like... in the mean time I added a good amount of pepper, a couple tablespoons of ketchup and a few healthy shakes of Worcestershire sauce.

Yummy - By the way, if you have some bacon, fry it up and at the very end - extra yummy

The Divergent Trilogy

I was craving my next read and someone recommended this series.  If you liked Hunger Games you will love this.  It's a dystopian world and full of young rebels like Hunger Games, yet the premise it totally different. 

Short post, I know. 

Not too much to say but check out this series.

By the way, movie for first book comes out this year.

Money doesn't equal happiness... Part II

Remember this post?  Back in June I took on a challange to save money.  Click on the link in the original post to see the source.

It's been 6 months give or take since I started.
Not doing too bad.  I just put in what I can and cross out the amount.

I'm very excited by the amount I've saved.

The challange continues...
