What's cookin' Thurs. 6/23?

Goulash for me. I haven't made that in a while and I should be able to use up a few things I have laying around, like a red bell pepper and some shallots. No hamburger, but I do have some ground turkey and a couple pieces of rope sausage that I took out of the freezer already. I'll bake a loaf of bread to go along with it some time today.

Those are my plans anyway.
Anyone else have a plan yet?

Fajitas. Again. I like them, but my daughter wants them all of the time. So, we have them at least two or three times a month. One thing I like about them is that they take very little time from start to finish. And, other than one knife, a cutting board and two frying pans, there aren't many dishes. We usually use paper plate liners.

I love goulash! The last time I made it was in the crock-pot, then I added the macaroni later. Do you make the authentic goulash or the American version?

I make the American version, Vanilla, but I have made gulyás before and liked it a lot. I just restocked my paprika supply from Penzeys because I was going to make the Hungarian version again soon.
I use shells for my goulash because that's how my mother used to make it. I know a lot of people use elbow macaroni as tradition. It will be weird not having/seeing green peppers in it, but my plan was to use up that red one I have. I cook mine stovetop.

Can't go wrong with fajitas, Rock.

I just placed a roast in the crock-pot for 8-9 hours. Will pull out some brussell sprouts and potatoes as sides.

I have never made or eaten goulash. I will have to look that one up.

The kind I am making is often referred to as American chop suey, Harold.

Eggplant poutine (oven-fried eggplant sticks, salsa, and feta chunks).

Good morning,

Last day of school today .. YIPPEE!

We are meeting some friends for pizza later today, so depending on how hungry everyone is tonight, we'll have breakfast for dinner.

Rock--I don't know what else to call this--greek-mex oven-fried eggplant? I don't use recipes a lot--I cook by intuition and taste and what I have on hand...I gotta eat these eggplants, I have feta, and I have an open jar of homemade salsa...and, the DH is back in the City.
