New Year's Food

     New Year's Day went without much hitch, barring a sub-optimal head of cabbage:
     Good corned beef (the flash was unkind to it), excellent vegetables otherwise.  I don't know what was up with the cabbage; I found it acrid.  Too long in the tooth?  Possible.  And here I was saving back a wedge to have some to put on a hamburger.  (The old Penguin Point drive-ins did that instead of lettuce and if you ask me, it's far superior; on the other hand, my lineage possesses a fondness for the brassicas that would do credit to a Pratchett character)

North Carolinians long ago discovered that cabbage went well with smoked pig, and have been putting it on their barbecue ever since. There's two variations, Eastern-style (made with mayonnaise) and Lexington-style (made with vinegar and ketchup). Recipes for both can be found at the North Carolina Barbecue Society website.
