In high school my dad got a new job and in return our family had to move. We moved several hundred miles away to a bigger area. I had a bit of trouble making friends since it seemed the clicks had been made and I did not know anyone. This may have been easier if I was younger but my freshmen year in high school it was hard. So I was so happy when I made my first friend. Her mother also cooked the best southern food. Her family was from Kentucky and her mother had worked in a diner there. Many dishes were different than what my mother would have made. Cabbage rolls was one of her specialties In honor of my best friend way back when and her mom I share this cabbage roll recipe.
Start with a whole head of cabbage and peel the outer leaves off.
Immerse the head of cabbage in boiling water. Let sit for 3 to 4 minutes til soft not mushy.
Boil the cabbage from the water and let cool.
