Thursday, May 20, 2010 Nobody Leaves Hungary!

Emergency rooms all over Fairfield County are gearing up to admit my friends, all of them suffering from a food induced coma. The fact that I am able to sit at the computer is testament to my inner Magyar. My Hungarian half is fighting to stay awake, to let you know just how fucking good dinner was.

First thing this morning I was boiling smoked ham hocks in water. Three hours later I was not convinced this was going to taste good. Well, let me tell you! Add some onions, garlic, parsley and paprika and holy shit that tasted good!

I've made Beef Goulash (pictured) before, many times. But this batch turned out exceptionally well. The meat fell apart under your fork. Peppers, onions, tomato, paprika and bacon simmered for 8 hours before meeting my homemade noodles and living happily ever after (until I ate it.)

The cucumber salad was nice to go back to between dishes. Razor thin slices of cucumber with thinner slices of onion in a white vinegar dressing. You can have it with or without sour cream. I go without.

Dessert was the best part of the meal. Another one of my own inventions, it was "off the hook" according to one guest. I just thought it was fucking delicious. Delicately spiced potato pancakes topped with Sour Cream Ice Cream, which is just the richest vanilla you'll ever have, and hot apple topping. Kick ass, mother fucker!

Tomorrow I shall pass on a recipe or two. Tonight! I shall sleep!

Bang on, my peeps!
