On the one hand I miss having my well-stocked cave full of butternut squash and pumpkins.
On the other hand I am thoroughly enjoying all of the other vegetables that I am (ahem) forced to buy.
I love cabbage.
And cauliflower, broccoli, Brussells sprouts…. I even love boring old carrots.
But this is about the cabbage.
We normally get green or Savoy cabbage here. The white cabbage, more common in the U.S., is seen less often.

The Balsamic vinegar lends a monotone look to this easy skillet dinner. The flavor is worth it!

This Chicken, Carrot, & Cabbage Skillet is more colorful.
We got a notice from the mayor the other day. It’s time for the census.
Along with the usual bits about what the census means and why it’s important, was a notice that we could complete the census online, starting on the 19th and giving the link.
Great, I thought.
That will be easy and we don’t have to be on the look-out for the census-taker.
We have to open the gate if we are expecting someone. Most people will not open a gate and come to the house. It’s very handy to keep out proselytizing religious zealots but irritating when we forget to open it for the dog food delivery.
On the 19th we got another notice, describing how to get online.
I almost threw it away, indignantly…. But then I looked closer and it gave our unique id numbers, etc.
Yesterday I went online to fill it out.
The website was unavailble.
I tried again today. Success!
I was epecting to answer a few questions and be done in 5 or 10 minutes.
I forgot about how involved a census is.
45 minutes later, with the help of google translate, I was done.
To be fair (to me) I understood the questions but I didn’t always understand why they would ask that – so I googled to make sure I wasn’t missing something.
They sent me a gold star when I finished.
