Goulash to share
My mom's group makes meals for each other when someone has a baby. I love that they do this. When Jack was born it was so nice to have someone bringing over dinner for us for a couple of weeks. Life is crazy with a toddler and a newborn and having dinner delivered took a big weight off of my shoulders.
This week I had the chance to cook for one of our moms who just had her 4th child. I am sure she is really busy so I wanted to make a dish that would not only satisfy her hungry family but would also give her some left overs for a couple of days. I decided to make goulash.
Who doesn't like goulash? I mean it is simple but oh so, tasty. It is a dish that I remember my mom making when I was a child. So, I was on the search for a recipe that was easy and simple and well, tasted like my moms.
I came across the Paula Deen recipe and it was exactly what I wanted. I made a double batch and kept some for us. This make a HUGE amount. I really could have just make a single batch and still had enough for both my family and the family I was cooking for.
