Easy Cabbage Roll Casserole

In Dianes Kitchen

My husband loves cabbage rolls. The other day he told me he wanted to try a cabbage roll casserole. He researched some different recipes and came up with his own version to try. Since I had a client and I always take my clients out to eat, he decided to try it today. He was very pleased with how it turned out.



Begin by cooking your ground beef and onion, cabbage and the rice.

Add the spices to the ground beef, add the tomatoes and then rice, mixing to combine.

In a 3 quart casserole dish, place half the cabbage, all of the ground beef mixture next, the rest of the cabbage and top with tomato sauce.


Place into a 350 degree oven, covered, for one hour.

Aliados do Bonsai

luz da imagem

Avenida dos Aliados, no Porto, essa que acolheu na sua Câmara Municipal, a IV Exposição Internacional de Bonsai Cidade do Porto, que decorreu em 2016 entre 30 de Setembro e 2 de Outubro, não fica indiferente ao olhar de quem durante seis anos a pisou quase que diariamente e nesta data a revisita, como em outras datas, mas com o objetivo lúdico de documentar uma exposição de uma arte que o fascina.

Poderia chamar-se aliados do Bonsai, onde árvores de jardim são aliadas da exposição, dando azo à imaginação que reverte a convencional forma de registar em policromático num registo monocromático.

Mas outras coisas acontecem e isto de ser predador de imagens, às vezes é-se caçado e acontece que o caçador o pode ser. E foi!

Mas numa avenida de imponentes edifícios onde alguns começam a denunciar degradação, dado tratar-se de edifícios devolutos com muitos anos, há quem invista na reconstrução…

The rich young ruler

and after every thing
Jesus told him
he answered, “I have done that”

then the final question
that passed between them
was from the rich young ruler
to Jesus

“What more do I need to do?”
Jesus looked deeply

The Entitled Generation

Rogue Millennials

“Casual dining is in danger – and Millennials are to blame,” started the AOL article. The outlandish header is what grabbed my attention: “Millennials are killing chains like Buffalo Wild Wings and Applebee’s.”

Every day there’s more of the same. CNN predicts 25% of malls will close in 5 years. Doom and gloom titles abound: “Retailers closing at a staggering rate.” Credit Suisse predicts over 8,600 retail stores will close by the end of 2017. Professor John Clapp warns, “This is a death spiral.”


And credit for all this wanton destruction goes to? Drum roll, please…


The average Millennial.

We, the Millennial Generation, will single-handedly destroy the entire world economy by not buying the crap they’ve grown accustomed to peddling.

Yeah, sounded a bit melodramatic to me, too.

Here’s the irony. No customer is obligated to buy what you sell. Maybe you have a terrible sales pitch, maybe…
