My kingdom for some kielbasa!
I bought some sauerkraut in a jar from a Polish market. It is the crispest, whitest, and mildest kraut I have ever tasted. Very very good. So good and mild and crisp that I even made cole slaw with some of it LOL. I made myself a turkey reuben sandwich, and sauteed some with noodles and onions. Added a bit to some leftover spaghetti sauce and water for a very tasty soup. There is still some in the jar and I am dying to use it up. I have cravings for kielbasa and sauerkraut. DD and DH won't touch it. Since DH is on afternoons and isn't home for dinner, I could make it for myself and throw something else together for DD. But I only like it made with the GOOD kielbasa and I haven't been able to get to the market for some. DD came home early sick today so I am crossing my fingers I can get to the market tomorrow. Plus my driver's side windshield wiper blade keeps breaking off. This is not a good time of year to be driving in this city with no windshield wipers. Within a block I am blind. It keeps coming off and they keep "fixing" it and it just comes off again. I will insist this time that they just replace BOTH blades because I don't like them anyway and it is getting quite ridiculous. But anyway it makes it hard to just jump in the car and go when you have a second, because I have to preheat the car and scrape the windows and squeegee them just to get going (which is a pain in itself because the thin sheath of water keeps refreezing). Then I have to stop repeatedly to clean the window. Slushy roads, salt, blowing snow, people who don't clean off their cars so give off a wake of snow flakes that blanket you as they pass, and it has been snowing on and off for a few days. DD thinks I shouldn't even bother with new blades. She thinks I should just get a new car. I like how that girl thinks. Now she just better get to work so she can loan me the money ;).
