Red cabbage synchronicity

Last week I made Pickert, a favorite recipe I brought back from Bielefeld in 1991. Of course I had to have some Wurst with it. What's difficult is finding a sausage that won't give you your yearly supply of saturated fat in one meal. al fresco all natural makes a very tasty chicken sausage that contains 75% less fat than your standard sausage, so I picked up their sweet apple with maple syrup style--a perfect complement to the Pickert.

I also craved red cabbage salad for this meal. This was a problem because Weis doesn't carry prepared red cabbage. The last time I wanted red cabbage salad I had to drive out to Wegman's to buy some Kuehne in their international section, and I didn't feel like driving to the other side of town. So, instead, I decided to make my own. I bought a head of red cabbage at Weis and cooked up a salad with a Joy of Cooking recipe. It turned out very well.

Now for the red cabbage synchronicity. Today, when I did my weekly shopping at Weis, I could not believe what I saw in the canned vegetable aisle. Yep. They added red cabbage salad in a jar. Blue Boy brand. But wait. That's not all. When the mail came this afternoon I found that I received a flier from Wegman's announcing their Mayfest celebration. The flier included a recipe for red cabbage stuffed pork loin and a coupon for $1.00 off Kuehne products. I'm surrounded by red cabbage today.
