Megan's First Sunday Back At Church

Sunday marked the first service Megan attended since she was diagnosed. Curry stood and brought everyone up to speed as to how she was doing and said "most of you know that, but what you didn't know, is that she is here". She received an emotional standing ovation, not only for her, but for what God has done. She looks so good and so strong. She is getting better quickly, but does need to rest as much as she can. The Sunday morning outing did make her very tired. After the service the line to talk to her was long. Many people prayed for her, and wished her well. Curry prayed for her, and for the upcoming radiation treatments. Megan's request is that we all pray for the 6 weeks of radiation she will have to endure. Please pray for her daily, and send the address of this blog to all you know who will. Todd & Sabrina Farber are huge supporters of Megan. Sabrina has organized meals and all kinds of help. Todd is a hunter, and some of the meals she has supplied have included venison. We are also a family of hunters and found these meals to be superb!! If you are a family that has some deer sausage in your freezer, this one is one for the book!!

Sabrina's Braised Green Cabbage & Venison Sausage.

8 tbs unsalted butter
1-2 large yellow onions, sliced thin
2 cups dry white wine (buy the cheapest one)
1 tbs salt
5 bay leaves (organic bay leaves ore most flavorful)
1tsp white pepper (grind fresh if you can)
1 head of green cabbage, cored and sliced thin
2-3 lbs of venison sausage (substitute any link sausage for venison)

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in large skillet with tight-fitting lid. (Cast iron skillet works best because you have to put this baby in the oven a minute)
2. Add the onion to the butter and saute until translucent, 6-8 minutes
3. Increase you heat to high and add the wine, bay leaves, salt and white pepper. When the mixture simmers, add the cabbage and cook until cabbage wilts and you are able to place the top on the skillet.
4. Cover tightly, transfer to oven and cook for 40 minutes.
5. In the meantime cook your sausage in the oven with your cabbage or grill it outside. When you sausage is done, slice it to later place with the cabbage.
6 Remove the cabbage from the oven, fish out the bay leaves and then place 6 more tablespoons of butter on the cabbage. Correct the seasonings and then put your sausage in a separate bowl or mix in with the cabbage.
