Quite a Summer

I'm starting to blog a few recipes again... it has been a hectic summer to say the least. We spent 4 glorious weeks in South Africa visiting family, what an adventure!
I also took on the task of painting the interior of our home. This has kept me busier than I anticipated, but I'm loving it.
As the seasons begin to change I will be busier in my kitchen again, stay tuned : )

Zulu Cabbage

1 large onion, sliced
1 green pepper, chopped
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1 14 oz. can chopped tomatoes
1-2 tablespoons curry powder
salt to taste

Saute onion and green pepper till soft.
Add cabbage and cook until it begins to wilt.
Add tomatoes and curry powder
Stir occasionally adding a little water if needed.
Simmer for about 1.5 hrs.

Salt to taste.
This is a dish you can change up how you like but this is the basic recipe. I like to add tumeric, garlic and some cardamom seed.
