On With The Love Affair

The hubby is gone on a week long hunting trip. This gives me a chance to carry on with my love affair…

with Goulash.
Good old Minnesota Goulash.

I grew up in Minnesota where "Hotdishes" are considered gourmet food.
My dear husband grew up in Minnesota too but his mother came over from Ireland as a war bride.
He never really became a "Minnesota hotdish junkie".
He was more accustomed to things like soda bread and vinegar on French fries.
It is very common in Minnesota to have a cookbook with MANY recipes with the name - Hotdish.
While the hubby is gone I will eat bowls and bowls of Goulash and watch all of the old episodes of Project Runway - again.

And on a business note - Late Bloomers fabric and patterns have shipped.

And a belated thank you to all of you who followed me on the Moda Country Fair Blog Hop.
It was very much appreciated!
And a heads up - we are having another Moda Blog hop.
It is scheduled for December 5th-9th.
Stay tuned for more details.

Make your favorite dish... and stuff yourself.

From my heart,


  1. That looks delicious! Would you mind sharing your recipe?

  2. YUM! We love dishes like that! We always called it goulash, but here in New England I guess that same dish is called American Chop Suey!

    Can't wait for the next hop and to see Late Bloomers in the stores.

    Enjoy your week!


  3. I totally laughed when I saw your goulash picture, goulash was always a joke at our hose, it was the meal we always ate when my dad had to cook! :)

  4. That looks great! Do you have a recipe that you would recommend? I am from Indiana - we do beef stew and vegetable soup - this looks much better!

  5. Yumminess! Please share your recipe! I'm a recipe junkie! LOL

  6. Love goulash! Growing up, when money was scarce, we always had goulash just before pay day. Sometimes joined in with neighbors to make a big pot to feed everyone. It's on our menue for tomorrow night, actually.

  7. Could you send a bowl of that over here -- with some nice thick day old italian bread for dipping! In my house, we would just call that DINNER! :-)

  8. How about a recipe? That goulash looks great!

  9. I'm glad to know there's someone else out there who rewatches Project Runway.

  10. That looks amazing! So good on cold days, right? Please share your recipe.

  11. Sorry, goulash brings back memories of a weekly staple of my childhood ~ probably the only meal I dreaded each week. However, I hadn't thought about it in ages! I do think there was some version of it in most midwestern homes in the 50's and 60's. Enjoy your weekend!

  12. Love, love, love hotdishes! I grew up in ND with a mother from Minnesota, so I have had many a great hotdish in my day. Imagine my disgust when I moved to AZ and realized that people down here didn't even know what a hotdish was, let alone how great they were lol. Enjoy your week!

  13. Was hoping you would consider sharing your receipe, it looks DELICIOUS!

  14. Hi Sandra I showed this photo to my hubby and he said did you get the recipe. I said she only posted the photo. He wants it. He is my chef and does a great job cooking thanks patty

  15. My parents are from Western PA and that Ghoulash sure looks a lot like the Slop, or End-of-the-Icebox, dinner I grew up with!

    So easy to make and my kids thought I was a total genius for making it.

  16. Oh my goodness! That looks soooooo good! That's what we called goulash and we're from Michigan! A bowl of goulash and white jelly bread - heaven!!!

  17. Hi! Greetings from Finland! Your quilts are so fantastic! I love it! The colors are so stunning! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world! :)
