BTW, I am in the middle of making lasagne, lol. I am having my friend for dinner, had planned the menu, and woke up to discover that it is a major national holiday. No stores, no fish market. Oops! So, I had to make do with what I could find at the mini-market and a tiny greengrocer.

That's awesome! Stuffed cabbage is one of DD's favorites, but it's always a weekend meal, because of the time it takes to boil the cabbage and peel the leaves off one at a time. I'm going to mention this freezing method to DH.

That's what we do, no tomato juice or sauce, just cooked in a broth. We squeeze a little lemon juice on, but don't do the avgolemen. We call it malfoof. Is that also what it's called in Greek?

Nope, malfoof must be Arabic. Here they also sometimes put a dollop of plain yogurt on top, instead of the avgolemeno. Stuffed cabbage is called "lahanodolmades" in Greek. "Lahano" is cabbage and "dolmades" is any kind of stuff wrapped in leaves.

Hmm, I may try the freezer idea. The recipe my family uses tells you to boil the cabbage leaves until they are soft enough to peel off of the head of cabbage. It works well, except that boiling water is hot! :) We cook the cabbage rolls on the stovetop instead of in the oven though. Oh and I forgot the garlic. Cabbage rolls have to have garlic added with the tomatoes.
