Mostly up north where I grew up they are called Sarmas AKA cabbage rolls or pigs in the blanket.

We always thought pigs in blanket were hot dog in crescent roll dough baked.

Heres the recipe I use

6 pounds of ground ham and pork butt  50/50  Some people also use hamburger

1 1/2 cups of white rice

Garlic  Salt  Pepper or any other spices to taste

Sour cabbage heads  A little hard to find in Minneapolis but Bobs produce has them

Have heard of people freezing a cabbage head and thawing it out to get the leaves limp and maybe add sour kraut for more flavor.

Another twist is some people add tomato juice or tomato sauce for a little different flavor

I use 20 pounds of meat and 3 sour heads to make 75-80 of them

That's what I thought, too. My wife used to make those and called 'em cabbage rolls.....and usually put a thick tomato paste with basil and spices over them. No matter what ya call 'em, they're good!

Oh man, Sarma; one of my favorite meals of all-time!  I've never ventured to try it in my own kitchen - mostly because my wife and kids would never stop complaining about the beautiful sweat-sock like odor that only true lovers of that kind of cuisine can appreciate.  And I'd be the only one who eats it--so maybe I'll have to down-size the recipe and add it to the long list of "Things to make when the wife and kids aren't home."  Unfortunately (for my stomach, at least) that's a rare thing and that list is getting LONG!

Trying a new recipe. Scratch chocolate cake with caramel filling.  Will have chocolate frosting.  Still need to slice the layers.

Done

looks excellent.  Is that an answering machine I see?

no. That is a scale with a remote able platform removed. Salter brand.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
