Proof that I'm in the process of going native: lunch today is boiled potatoes and red cabbage from a jar, omgzthebestthingever. You can tell it's the cabbage time of year, because they sell these special crocks in the grocery store. The other day, my colleague was on her way home to do something with cabbage that I think is like a cross between sauerkraut and kimchee. She was making a stomping motion with her feet, and then I see these crocks in the grocery store... I think it's a very involved process because when I asked her about it the next day, she said that they finished around 8 that night -- and she started around 1 in the afternoon.
