My mother-in-law's "cabbage thing"

Creative title, right?  Please keep in mind that I'm writing this post at night and I'm off my ass on a Tylenol PM.  So, kindly tell that unicorn in the corner to shut up and eat his glitter hay, and cut me some slack on the recipe title.

And, basically, this is a cabbage dish that my mother-in-law makes.

This side dish is stupidly easy, and wickedly cheap - especially right now considering how stores discount cabbage around St. Patrick's Day.  It also comes together in about 10 minutes which makes it perfect for a weeknight.  I tend to cook up a batch of bacon and put it in the freezer, so that makes this recipe ever more workday friendly.  I also shredded/cut the cabbage over the weekend.

Cabbage thingy
4 strips of bacon, diced
2 celery stalks, thinly diced
Half of a head of cabbage sliced somewhat thinly
half of a small onion, sliced
1 tblsp sesame oil
2 tblsp olive oil (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

In a frying pan, saute the bacon.  Cooked thoroughly if using uncooked bacon, or just warm if using cooked bacon.
If using cooked bacon, add 2 tblsp of olive oil and 1 tblsp of sesame oil.  If using uncooked bacon, just add the sesame oil.  Add the celery and onion.
Saute the celery and onion until softened.
Add the cabbage, and saute for about 3-4 minutes, or until softened.

Season with salt and pepper, and serve hot.
