CHERRY PINEAPPLE POPSICLE AND STRAWBERRY DESSERT

WOW !!! Just 3 ingredients makes this dessert a nice and refreshing treat. My son was eating a cherry pineapple popsicle.When I saw that color combination orange and yellow ideas pop into my mind and I rush to the kitchen to create something that I never made before. I had fresh strawberries, whipped topping and maraschino cherries. If you want to try it here is what you need:
INGREDIENTS:

1 popsicle (your favorite),
4 fresh diced strawberries,
1 cup whipped topping,
maraschino cherries for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

On the bottom of a serving dish (I choose glass) spread 2,3 spoons whipped topping; add 2,3 tablespoons diced strawberries and third add 2,3 tablespoons shaved popsicle; continue this procedure until all ingredients are used. Finish with whipped topping and garnish (optional)
Insert the rest of the popsicle on the side; Looks good, taste good !!!
Hope you like it. There is no question about it in this house!

ENJOY!

Have a nice day!

CABBAGE WITH HOMEMADE SMOKED GERMAN SAUSAGE

Was a little bit hard to decide how to cook these tasty homemade german sausage; with potatoes, beans or cabbage; so I call for a family meeting (just kidding...) and cabbage it was!
We went for a short vacation to Los Angeles, visiting with relatives and shopping at our favorite german deli-grocery store in Alpine Village. The prices went up since last time we shopped there, 3 months ago. WOW ! What's new?
INGREDIENTS:

1 head shredded white cabbage,
1/2 lb.sliced smoked sausage (kielbasa works excellent also)
1 medium chopped onion,
1 can 8 oz. italian cut tomatoes,
1/4 cup olive oil,
1 teaspoon salt,
1/2 teaspoon black pepper,
1/2 teaspoon red crushed pepper,
2 bay leaves;

DIRECTIONS:

In a cooking pan, saute onion in 1/4 cup olive oil until tender;
Add sausage and cook for 2 minutes;
Add cabbage and all seasonings, tomatoes and 2 cups water;
Stir and cover; cook for 15 to 20 minutes on low heat.

The result is OUT OF THIS WORLD!
I dare you to try it!

ENJOY!

Have a nice day!
