What Did You Have for Dinner?

Recommended Posts

Tonight's fare was very basic & nostalgic.

I was raised on this dish that my mother called "Goulash".

No, it's not goulash, and it's not really a casserole because it's made in a skillet.

I suppose that the rest of the world might call it "macaroni & beef".

My mother got the recipe from her mother & it was a quick supper for my siblings and I growing up.

Then it became a staple in our household for our kids when they were young.

Now my wife & I make it for ourselves on occasion for a week night meal just because it's fast & delicious.

Now our daughter has started making it for her boyfriend & herself.

Funny how these goofy little things seem to keep moving from generation to generation.

This recipe is a little different than most "mac & beef" recipes as it has no tomato sauce.

It uses ketchup instead.

Other flavorings include onion, paprika, chili powder & brown sugar.

Buy the way, it's the exact same recipe as sloppy joes in our household, minus the macaroni. :P

And yes, the cold Sol is a perfect accompaniment. :)

I believe that I have at least a couple of bottles of Negra Modelo in my fridge right now. ;)

 

I was recently in a local burger/ craft beer joint that the wife & I have been enjoying lately.

The last few times I was there I had ordered a bottle of Red Stripe.

They carry few bottled beers, & of the ones that they do have, Red Stripe was the only one that I liked.

The bartender told me that I had better enjoy it because tRhey were about to eliminate it from their menu. :rolleyes:

I guess they needed to make room for another "Boar's Ass IPA" or something!

Way back when I just sat on the beach in Jamaica drinking  Red Stripe beers for most of the week. While I enjoyed Jamaica my better half wasn't too thrilled with it.

Cerveza seems to go with anything-even without the food-lol.

A six pack has the same carbohydrate content a a steak. Sorta like liquid meat.

With me, it's usually liver and onions! :D

Absolutely!  For me it's seafood...shrimp, squid, octopus, clam strips, gator, scallops, lobster.  The wife's limit is the BBQ salmon at Lone Star. Both boys will eat my shrimp, but that is about it.  I don't help matters when I also go for the Jamaican, Thai or other aromatic spices.  (I'm fat because I can cook and apparently do very well)

Had some delicious tilapia stuffed w/ crabmeat and shrimp at Bonefish Grill on Thursday night, and some shrimp tacos at Margaritaville yesterday.   I've had more seafood since moving back to Ohio than I did in years in Arizona.   Besides the chains, lots of great local seafood places, esp. along Lake Erie.

The wife has been getting some great deals on steaks lately.

Tonight was T-bones & roasted potatoes with bell peppers & shallots.
