Being Inspired and Challenged

Last week at church someone brought a "stir fry" dish that I just loved. I didn't really know what was in it except cabbage, meat and rice but I was inspired to try to make my own version. Yesterday I bought a bag of coleslaw cabbage on sale, I had some sausage and brown rice so off I went to duplicate that dish as best as I could.

I started by cooking brown rice according to the package directions in a small pot. I got a pan and started frying up sausage, onion and garlic until the sausage was all cooked. I then added the coleslaw cabbage mix and cooked it down (I added some butter both for flavor as well as to keep the cabbage from sticking). I added red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. After testing it a few times I decided to add some soy sauce and some Worcestershire sauce. Once the cabbage was all cooked and the rice was done I added it all together and let it simmer until Mike was ready for lunch. Mike liked it so I am putting this down as a "do again" recipe.

My sister has challenged the readers of her blog to memorize Psalm 139 in the next 15 days. I have stepped up to the challenge. Will you join me?
