Cabbage Challenged

If you follow me on facebook, you'll already know that in my most recent CHEP Good Food Box I received a very large cabbage. Other than the occasional cabbage salad, I really don't cook with cabbage often. This challenge however, is one of the reasons I love getting the Good Food Box.

I have also recently been trying to use my 'new' slow cooker more often and so I went in search of a recipe for cabbage in the slow cooker. You may have already guessed that I came across lazy cabbage rolls. So here I am, at home on a Sunday evening and I am planning to get my lazy cabbage rolls prepared in the morning for supper tomorrow. I have included the recipe from SparkPeople below and I have already chopped my vegetables for quick preparation before work tomorrow morning.
