 After a 10 hour drive home (due to an accident) I am finally just about unpacked and ready to get back into my routine around here. Today’s recipe is one I made Sunday evening for supper as my brother and all his family came over to eat. There was barely a drop left in the crock pot, many going back for 2nds and 3rds. It is a variation of my cabbage and ground beef skillet that was posted a good while back, using what Mama and Daddy had on hand and adding a few other things not in the other recipe. Daddy said it reminded him of swamp cabbage, so that’s what we decided to call it. It’s absolutely delicious, I made a big pone of cornbread to go with it and Daddy fixed up some fresh corn on the cob along with fresh green onions out of his garden.
