krapposelli wrote:Sure. BTW - that's just a picture I found on the 'net, but it should look something like that.

Hungarian Goulash

2 lb. beef stew meat
1 cup onion - sliced (I use the pre-cut frozen onion, much quicker and it practically disolves so those who don't like onions don't know it's in there)
1 sm garlic clove - minced (I use about a tsp of the garlic that comes in a jar)
3/4 cup ketchup (catsup, if you prefer)
2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs. brown sugar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dry mustard
dash cayenne pepper (I put about 1/2 tsp... but I like the spicy kick...)
1.5 cups water

Brown meat with the onion and garlic - cook until meat is brown and onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer for 2 to 2.5 hours.

2 Tbs flour
1/4 cup water

Mix flour and water, and sitr into meat mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute to thicken. Serve over noodles.



Thanks, sounds yummy. How come you didn't double it so your family would have it, too?

Because that would have made sense and be a smart thing to have done.

Tonight for dinner? Nothing. Well, that's not true. My m-i-l fed the kids spaghetti before I got home from work (Thursday is spaghetti night and my b-i-l's family was there too) and I ate a late lunch, so I didn't eat dinner. I usually only cook 1, maybe 2 meals a week. It's kinda hard since my husband works evenings and my m-i-l feeds the kids. Okay, that last part isn't hard, it is great, but makes it hard to do any cooking during the week.

I'd say that's pretty terrific. Back when I was cooking for a family, I'd have liked cooking a lot better if I only had to do it a few times a week.

When my youngest son got married, his wife said that she didn't like to cook - so she never did. I thought, damn, nobody ever told me I had a choice. This was back when it was the woman's "job." On the other hand, I only worked part time so I figured it was part of my job. I did insist on suggestions, though. Got so tired of the same things over and over and over.

My husband will be back to working day-shift sometime this summer (we're doing it this way to save $ on daycare - next Fall our son will go to full day Kindergarten) so I'll, no we'll be cooking more. I feel guilty having her feed me and the kids though. But then I get over it pretty quickly.

I think my m-i-l is just appalled that I don't iron every single piece of clothing - including jeans. I did for the first year or so of our marriage, then I convinced the husband that you really can't tell if the jeans are ironed. Laundry day is much better now. I'm pretty sure all of husbands' siblings (or their spouse) iron everything. I"m such the rebel.

edit: I'm off to finish cooking and then heading to bed. Good night.

What's this "iron" she's talking about. I thought it was a metal.

Weird, in my husbands family all the guys iron, because they are more neurotic than the wives!
They all learned to send the work shirts to the laundry really fast.

A looser what? Woman? (Uh oh, I'm a gonna get slapped)...

Or do you mean loser?

I'm soooo stuffed. Our iHOP closed :cry: so we had to eat at Applebee's. Had the quesadilla burger, fries, my son's fries he wouldn't eat, a Brewtus beer, a glass of water, and a tummy ache...

Our IHOP is horrible. I went four times in the first year or so they opened. The service was terrible and the food nothing to write home about. You were better off at Applebee's.

Husband just called (on his new cell phone!) and is at White Castle, wanted to know if I wanted anything. Uh, no.

My wife'd be jealous. They don't have any here, and sometimes she gets the major hankerin' for sliders.

Yeah, Applebee's isn't my favorite place. But better than O'Charley's. Same type of restaurant. And TGIFriday's is maybe a cut above both.

The Apple pancake is to die for, and is so large I share it with others and still have leftovers...

But I don't want to drive to Ill for pancakes!

When we went to the family reunion last year in the Catskills (NY), there were all these good places to eat. Every little place we went into was cheap and excellent. Don't know how they did it, there aren't that many people up there. None were all that busy.

They probably don't have the overhead that places in NYC have.

The hotel, however, thought it was in the city. The food there was not so good and totally expensive.
