The Basic Table

And by this, I mean poor man's food. Nothing better.

Tonight's menu is Cabbage, Sausage and Potatoes. Just what it says.
Peeled and cubed potatoes simmered in rich chicken broth (with garlic,
herbs and celery), sliced sausage links and cabbage. Simple, but oh, so

Served with hush puppies on the side (not traditional with this dish, it
just sounded good to me) it's the perfect meal for a cold night like we're
having now. Dh is on his second bowl, and (unashamedly) so am I!

Other foods in this category would be rice and gravy, biscuits and gravy,
grits and eggs, tomatoes and rice (sometimes with okra), and more.  Love it!

What poor foods fill your table and belly when it's cold?
