I learned where the fuse box was in my car today. It was not a simple task to take the cover off. Inside was a plastic tool, which looks like a nail clipper. This tools’ purpose is to remove an old fuse and replace it with a new fuse. Different colored fuses can be stored in the container. The backup lights are now working perfectly.

I dropped by the library and picked up some books to read and CD’s to watch during this weekend. Right now it is in the 20s in the Chicagoland area but heard the weather is going to get colder for Saturday and Sunday.

For dinner we had a fish fry, garlic bread and homemade red cabbage.

Here is the Red Cabbage recipe:
Chop a medium-size head of red cabbage
into fine strips. Boil the cabbage until it is
soft (about 2 hours) over a low heat in
1 cup water, ½ cup apple cider vinegar,
½ cup sugar, one apple peeled and finely chopped,
and 1/3 cup red currant jelly. Just before
serving, add a pinch of dill and a pinch of coriander.
Stir and simmer. Add more vinegar,
if sweet sour taste is preferred.
I left the 1-teaspoon of salt out
of the recipe, but add it if you like.
FYI: My mother-in-law liked to cook the
red cabbage in large strips.
Personally, I like to take a spatula
and cut up the strips, finely.
Third choice probably would be to
put red cabbage in a blender.
