Sauteed Cabbage and Potatoes
Happy St. Patrick's Day! I have to admit, I don't have much experience making Irish food. While my heritage is mostly German and African American, I do have a bit of Irish heritage, and as of October of last year, I have an Irish last name! I love a good challenge*, so I figured St. Patrick's Day was the perfect occasion to try creating an Irish-themed recipe. Feeling lucky? Try it out:
-1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thinly
-2 cloves garlic, sliced
-1/2 yellow onion, sliced
-2 medium red potatoes, cubed
-1 Tbsp. olive oil
-Kosher salt, to taste
-black pepper, to taste
Boil potatoes in water until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add cabbage, onions, and garlic. Saute until cabbage is tender and onions are translucent. Drain potatoes and add to cabbage and onions. Mix well, adding salt and pepper. Enjoy!

*Speaking of challenges, I just signed up for my first marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon! I'll be fundraising for an organization very dear to my heart, Back On My Feet. BoMF works by encouraging those experiencing homelessness to use running to achieve personal goals such as finding employment and independent housing.
