A few weeks ago I was going for my usual produce run: celery for 79 cents, carrots for 69 cents, caulifower for a dollar, avodacos for 69 cents, etc. (Did I say how much I love Aldi?)
Not sure how I mixed this up, but I accidentally grabbed a head of cauliflower and a head of green cabbage instead of two heads of cauliflower. What was I going to do with cabbage? Cole slaw? Cabbage was something I'd always passed by in the produce aisle.

WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME HOW AMAZING CABBAGE IS. Seriously guys, it's now one of the have-to-have-in-the-fridge-at-all-times veggies. Raw, sauted, whatever. Hm, I've only got carrots and broccoli for my salad... put some cabbage in it! I'm making soup and looking for stuff to throw in.... put some cabbage in it! Quinoa stir fry? Put some cabbage in it! I feel like I've been deceived, going all this time not knowing there is a staple veggie I've been missing.
This also makes me think- what other produce items am I living without? Please let me in on your secrets and give me some more that I can incorporate into my repetoire.
