Louise de Vilmorin’s Stuffed Cabbage
1 medium green cabbage2 cups cold cooked pork or sausage meat or roast veal, ground
4 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/2 pint yogurt or sour cream
Plunge the cabbage into enough rapidly boiling salted water to cover the cabbage. Boil for 5 minutes. Drain well, bottom up. Separate the leaves and cut out the hard cores. Place a spoonful of well-seasoned stuffing on the edge of each leaf. Turn over the sides of the leaves and roll up. Place side by side in an oiled casserole with a cover and simmer on the lowest fire for about an hour. To keep moist, add a few spoonfuls of broth or water. Uncover and let brown, turning after 10 minutes to brown evenly. Pour yogurt or sour cream over cabbage and cook until heated through.

Patti Waggin (Born Patricia Hardwick in 1926) was a stripper and motor cyclist! What more can a man ask for? Maybe a double act with the luscious Ricki Corvette? That too was a possible wish come true…
“If there’s one word to describe shapely Patti Brownell, it’s excitement. The young lass lives by it–and for it. Into her existence, Patti packs a triple life: During the day, she’s a student at California’s Chico State College: at night she draws tremendous crowds into the cafe where she presents her whiz bang strip act: and on her off moments, Patti is a death-defying motorcyclist. As far as our luscious blue-eyed blonde is concerned, there’s nothing unusual about her life. Patti’s been winning trophies for motorcycle riding since she was 14. She loves the sport.” Read more of her true story here on the selvedgeyard.com
