A long-time Morrison family tradition - Galumpkies!!

What are galumpkies you ask?
Galumpkis are cabbage rolls, a traditional Polish dish that my dad's side of the family loves to eat!

Todd's family also likes to eat cabbage rolls. So a few years ago we started a new year's day tradition in our home...make and eat galumpkies!

This year I had a little helper...

Today's galumpkies were beef...sometimes I use pork and beef. I mixed the browned beef with cooked rice and a big can of diced tomatoes. Lots of salt and pepper. Today I threw in some thyme, oregano, and red pepper flakes for good measure.

Ida rode along in the front pack as I peeled and boiled cabbage leaves...trying to keep them as intact as possible.

Next, place some of the meat mixture in a tender cabbage leaf and roll up like a little burrito.

Place in a heavy bottomed roasting pan or a crockpot. I put a layer of tomato sauce and sauerkraut on the bottom to help the galumpkies from sticking.

Next, a layer of tomato sauce. I like mine with lots of tomato sauce.

And then a layer of kraut...

Ida was a great helper. Somehow I managed to keep her clean, no tomato sauce or kraut on this little bean!

Cabbage rolls get tricky towards the end because the cabbage leaves get smaller and more difficult to remove from the cabbage without tearing them. Sometimes you have to do some patch work.

Mmmm, more tomato sauce. And sauerkraut.

And off into the oven they go!

Here's to a very wonderful 2010 to everyone!
Eat, drink and be merry!
