Every Day Goulash

As a child once a year my mother would go away for a weekend with her friends. My Dad was in charge. He discovered he could make a dish called goulash. We had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner for three days, every year. We would tease him about it. When I married we had a group reunion and he volunteered to cook. My husband helped and learned how. and he cooked it often for them. Our kids still ask for it. It became our comfort food. Thanks Dad. We still miss you. Hugs.
