Crockpot Cabbage & Potatoes

Typically, Supper in Seconds should save you from a restaurant bill at the last minute, when you're already tired, haven't planned anything for dinner & are trying to pull out just a few more minutes of reserves to put something together. But sometimes, you have enough time to plan earlier in the day -- just no time to put the plan into action. On these days, a crockpot meal that can be thrown together in the requisite 5-10 minutes can be a perfect choice. Here's one of ours.

1 head of cabbage, roughly chopped cabbage (approximately 1 inch squares)
about 10 small red potatoes
2 Tbls. butter
2 tsp. salt

Put your potatoes in a sink full of cold water to soak while you chop the cabbage. (1 minute hands-on prep)
Chop the cabbage. (3 minutes hands-on prep)
Put in crockpot with about 10 small red potatoes (fewer if the potatoes are larger), the butter & the salt (2 minutes hands-on prep)
Fill with water to an inch from the top. (1 minute hands-on prep)
Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

We serve with apple cider vinegar. Meat eaters often serve this meal with sausage.
