When the dog days of summer are upon us there is nothing worse than standing over a hot stove to cook supper. Seems like a the stove can heat up a house faster than anything and that is appreciated during the Winter months, but on hot days like we have been having a crock pot meal sure comes in handy.
This cabbage casserole is sort of like an “unstuffed” cabbage roll, and it takes no time to throw together and then let your crock pot do all the work for you. I’ve used my crock pot a good bit this summer and it sure makes my life a lot easier…and cooler. As much as I love to cook, sometimes it is better to sit back and enjoy the day and let someone or something else do the cooking for you.
