Cabbage with Peanut Sauce; the lovely sound of running water — 14 Comments

  1. What a wonderful man, your hubby is! So very talented to be able to set his hand to so many things and have them turn out so beautiful!
    And running water? That alone is cause for celebration!

  2. Hooray for running water!
    He does work fast…my husband has been building my a sideboard… since January. It now has one door – only 3 more to go!
    Love the Thai take on the cabbage, I currently have two in the fridge to conquer – this looks perfect!

  3. I love watching how the house has progressed. This was also my first time hearing the pink shower story… and I loved it. Really brightened up this gloomy day!

  4. My God Katie is the fan replaced on the stove yet.
    Sometimes you must want to wring the necks of the sales people. I have to say the stove would have been replaced here, Anyway the cabbage dish sounds nice. I love cabbage.
    And yes we do think Corned beef and Cabbage another favourite.

  5. the funny thing is I was thinking of your hot pink shower story before you even mentioned it in the post. I so enjoy reading your blog. you could even write about Mexico and make it funny…Mexico makes europe in august look efficient

  6. Wow! That vent hood is gorgeous. So is the tile. I remember the plumbing days and the curses from the crawl space and the fact that each joint my husband touched leaked. Hooray for running water. The cabbage recipe is ingenious – bet no one else posts one like it.

  7. Hooray!! That is so exciting! You’ll be using your kitchen sinks before you know it! I can’t wait until we’re that far along.

  8. Yay on kitchen progress. Glad to hear things are moving along nicely. And the cabbage sounds tasty–peanut sauce makes everything good in my book

  9. Joy oh joy – running water. I love vicariously following your reno journey…as long as it’s only vicariously 😉
    Delicious looking supper.

  10. Oh my goodness, but this sounds like a fabulous way to prepare cabbage!
    Needless to say, (but I will anyway) whoooohhhhhoooooooooooo!!! that you have running water and no leaks.
    (Another use for cabbage: sauerkraut, so you can make Reuben sandwiches)

  11. Val, yay is RIGHT!
    Zoomie, I miss corned beef….
    Farmgirl, I had no idea how much I would miss it.
    Emily, glad to brighten your day…
    Natashya, a sideboard? Wonderful! Mon mari made me one – a lot of work!
    Tanna, we did find one drip – but only one.
    Gilli, nope – no fan yet…. One does wonder!
    Shayne, oh my… You must be getting very good at practicing patience.
    Penny, at least he has a full cellar to work in, not a crawl space
    WJ, kitchen sinks, a modern wonder!
    Mike, they’re moving… usually, nicely.
    Ruth, I almost cried with joy.
    Elizabeth, I’ve never made kraut… I should try – maybe next winter. I love Rueben’s
