After the winter squash season and before the lock-down I managed to buy some winter vegetables.
I was so excited…. Cauliflower, broccoli, rutabagas, cabbage. We love them all.
The larger, cruciferous vegetables require a bit of a commitment when cooking for two. Or at least some planning so it all gets eaten.
One of our favorite ways to use up some cabbage is this easy Egg Foo Yung.
Or you could tuck some into a Fish Pie with Smoked Salmon.
It’s great in stir-fries…. and, of course, soup.
Now’s the time to get creative.

Chicken and Cabbage, Balsamic Yogurt Sauce
I used Savoy or green cabbage, which cooks a bit faster than the white cabbage common in the U.S,
This is great with simple boiled potatoes.
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 35 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 2 servings 1x
- Category: Chicken
- 2 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut in half
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cups roughly chopped Savoy cabbage
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 3/4 cup (6oz, 180ml) chicken stock
- 1/4 cup (2oz, 60ml) Balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1 tbs maizena (cornstarch) dissolved in 2 tbs water
- 2/3 cup (5oz, 150gr) Greek yogurt
- Heat oil in medium skillet.
- Add onion, sauté until tender.
- Add chicken and sauté until lightly browned, turning once.
- Add cabbage, thyme, vinegar, stock, stir to combine.
- Cover and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, until cabbage is tender.
- Stir cabbage and turn chicken once.
- Increase heat slightly, add cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened.
- Remove from heat and stir in yogurt.
- Spoon onto a platter and serve.
If you use white cabbage, remove the chicken after browning, add the cabbage to the skillet, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Then return the chicken to the pan and finish the dish.
My Greek yogurt comes in 5 oz containers…. 4 oz would work as well.

My attempt to schedule my time and be more productive has started to show some results.
I like to knit – and crochet.
I love sitting in front of a cozy fire, streaming Netflix…. But I can’t just sit and watch TV. I have to do something else.
This winter I was knitting.
As much as I love knitting, I hate finishing the project.
Knitting can be done sitting in a comfy chair at night, watching a movie.
Finishing needs to be done on a table with good light and concentration.
Finally, I finished this:
It’s a ‘shrug’, meant to just cover the shoulders. I was using up some leftover yarn and this was just right for it. It’s been waiting for those 2 easy seems since last fall.
I finished this cardigan in January – although I started it more than a year ago. Other projects got in the way…
It’s finally done.
It was meant to be finished by last fall. The seams and finishing too forever!
So…. some things are getting done.
How’s your lock-down going?
BTW – ‘shelter in place’ is so nice – but it rather sounds like a vague suggestion: Could you possibly, if it’s not too inconvenient, stay at home?
Lock-down has some authority behind it: Stay the f*ck home!
