I'm not even sure if that's the actual way to spell it, but the mere thought of the goulash makes my throat clench and my tummy turn over. Blech.
When my sisters and I were younger, Mom served goulash at least twice a month. She says "I don't know why you despised it so much. It's basically Hamburger Helper."
That's like having your hubby buy you an El Camino and him saying it's basically a corvette.
I don't think so.
Over the years as my taste buds have changed, I've learned to like foods I hated as a kid. (Not goulash, though.) One recipe from Mom that fits this category is hers for Bean Salad.
Hmm. I ought to start taking pictures of these recipes after I've fixed them. Tomorrow is another day!
1 can navy beans
1 can black beans
1 can butter beans
1 can light kidney beans
Drain beans and rinse.
2/3 cup red and/or green pepper
1 cup celery
1 medium onion
1/2 cup carrot
1 1/2 cup frozen shoe peg corn
While you are dicing veggies, microwave corn for 3 to 4 minutes. Combine beans and veggies in large bowl.
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2/3 cup vinegar
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3/4 tsp Mrs. Dash tableblend
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Mix the remaining ingredients in a saucepan and heat until sugar dissolves. Pour over beans mixture. Cover and chill before serving. Keeps well for several days!
QUESTION OF THE DAY :: What recipe or food did you hate when you were a kid but now love (or at least tolerate)?
