St. Patrick's Day Leftovers

There is just two of us in this house... so a whole cabbage will last us a while.  Trying to use up some of the uncooked cabbage and have a tasty lunch treat.  Above I steamed about two cups of shredded cabbage and two tablespoons of finely chopped onions in the microwave, you can also do this on your stove top.  I heated it through until it has just beginning to softened, drain excess liquid.  Next add three pieces of thinly sliced pepper jack cheese (about 1/8 cup up to 1/4 cup) stir until melted.

I have a loaf of homemade sweet potato bread cut into thick slices and toasted.  Top with steamed cabbage and enjoy!

Ruben Sandwich
Okay, who doesn't know how to make a Ruben Sandwich?  Some assembly required.
Rye Bread - buttered on one side
Thousand Island Dressing - spread on the inside of bread
Corn Beef - thinly sliced and stacked on top of Thousand Island Dressing to your desired thickness
Sweet Bavarian Style Kraut (14 oz) very well drained.  This will make 3 sandwich with a thick layer.
2 to 3 sliced of thinly sliced swiss cheese top the Kraut
Top with second piece of bread and grill until heated through, cheese is melted and bread is toasted.
