Internet Potluck

It feels like fall here today, and I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some new recipes to feed my family. So let's have an Internet Potluck! Post a recipe in the comments section, email me one, or put one up on your blog. I'll collect them all later.
Bonus points if it's a dairy-free recipe or one that can be made dairy free. (Hints: if you usually top your casserole with cheese, I can leave it off. If you use butter and milk, I can use dairy-free margarine and soy milk. If your recipe is Pasta Alfredo or Cream of Chicken Sour Cream Potato Casserole, we might have a problem.)

I'll go first. This recipe is from my Aunt Ruth, and I don't know its real name. I made it all the time when I was pregnant with Katherine. In the summer. In Kentucky. Scott is an understanding man.

Aunt Ruth's Stew

Simmer together for two hours:
1/2 head of cabbage, cut in wedges
1 large can plum tomatoes, squished slightly with your fingers
1 large can sauerkraut
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
3-4 peeled and cubed potatoes
4 pork chops*
1 package Polish sausage*
1 package kielbasa*

Serve in bowls. If you really want to carbo pack you can serve it over mashed potatoes, as Ruth does.

* I try to dial down the fat content by using lowfat sausages and boneless pork chops.

  1. Mmm, that does sound pretty good. Although I wouldn't serve it with more potatoes.

    I'm with you I'm ready for cold weather foods. I'm making chili for tonight, so I'll throw that into your potluck. I just use a simple recipe of my mom's. I'll post it on my site later.

  6. Oh, this is so exciting! Let's see, we can serve Alisa's bread with Swistle's soup or Beck's soup....

  7. I still haven't figured out how to do this "link" stuff, but I wanted to let you know that I posted a recipe on my blog, too.

    Do they make no-whey cream of mushroom soup?

    I know! I keep leaving hints for someone to teach me how to link in the comments section, but no luck so far.

    Thanks for the recipe; yes, I can make it dairy-free!
