When I think of family gatherings, the first thing that comes to mind are these cabbage rolls. My first memories of these cabbage rolls was a Christmas night, at age 5 or 6. My parents were at my grand uncle's home, with the adults. The family's maid swept all the young ones and sat us down on the kitchen table, with our legs dangling down. Then, she brought a huge plate of rice, mixed with these cabbage rolls, and proceded to feed us one by one, forming the meal in a rice ball with her hand. It was so good, that everyone of those kids today, look forward to cabbage rolls with steam rice at every Christmas. This recipe was handwritten by my Godmother for me. At the end of the recipe she writes, "Happy Eating."
