Gather the Fragments

When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. John 6:12

In honor of those who have little, let us not waste what God has provided. My personal pledge this year is to make a concerted effort to not waste food. In many countries where there is not enough to fill hungry bellies, what we throw away or overeat would feed families.

If you haven't used all your St. Patrick's Day cabbage, here are two more good casserole dishes, perfect for a weekend evening meal.
This first one was given to me by my sister - it's quick and simple, also suitable for celiacs.

We have this casserole on our menu today.  I plan to make it with homemade noodles.

Cabbage and Noodles

½ cup chopped onion
¼ cup butter
4 cups shredded cabbage, sliced about as thin as the noodles
½ teaspoon salt
8 ounces noodles, cooked and drained
½ cup sour cream

Sauté onion in butter. Add cabbage; sauté until tender crisp, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir hot, drained noodles into cabbage; add sour cream. Heat through and serve.

Serve as a side dish with pork chops, ring bologna or meatloaf or hamburgers.
