When my brother was excited every night I decided to cook dinner and missed me for it when I moved out.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
First time making these. I added some Jimmy Dean Pork sausage to the mix for more flavor and to make 10 total. Also did 1/2c chopped onions instead of just 1/4c. For more flavor I added a bit of garlic powder. My family likes extra sauce so I added a whole can of Italian Stewed tomatoes to the mix. Served over white rice and steamed what was left of the cabbage head, carrots, and broccoli.

Shrimp Burritos
Definitely a keeper! My changes were as follows. Used black beans instead of refried, and also added diced mild green peppers to the beans and then simmered. For the rice, I used a wild rice and white rice mixture. Gave it a nice presentation and texture. Topped it off with cilantro and Pico de Gallo. Enjoy!
