Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was one of our favorites. Every time Mom asked us what we wanted for Sunday dinner, we would say Cabbage Rolls. They took a long time to make, but we loved them. Mom said she first learned to make these cabbage rolls in West Virginia, when she and dad lived in a coal camp there. A neighbor lady, who was of Hungarian descent, taught her how to make them. Mom said she was the best cook she had known at that time. They lived on "Hunk Hill", not politically correct in these days, but that was what it was called. Mom was a young wife then, and those memories were good ones for her. She often told us stories of those times - like sharing their coal allotment with a neighbor lady who's husband had left. If you worked in the mine, housing was free, as was coal, which was delivered and put into your coal bin. She saw this neighbor lady out picking up coal that had fallen off the trucks. Mother told her to come get what she needed from them. The lady's son, when he came to take his mother with him, stopped by to thank Mother for her kindness to his family.
