Happy Pie will be Glad When it is Over!

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Yesterday was a busy day at my home.  I was cooking up a storm because company was coming for dinner.  On the menu was Hungarian Chicken Paprikash with Egg Noodles, Stir Fried Apples with Walnuts, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and Raisins.  Also on the menu - Green Beans with Slivered Almonds and Bacon. 

Simmering on the back burner was a large pot of Pumpkin-Butternut Soup, and there were Cheddar Biscuits.  However, it wasn't the cooking that kept me entirely busy.  It was my phone which rang, rang and rang with political canvassing. 

Will I be glad mid-term election campaigning will end and bring things closer to normal next Tuesday?  You betcha!  And, even a peach pie I created was a testament to it!

Michael Jacobs - The recipes for most of the dishes can be found on-line.  However, the stir fried apples, I came up with on my own.  It's fairly simple.  You peel and slice apples like you would for a pie.  In a large skillet, melt a little butter.  Add in brown sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and chopped walnuts.  When a syrup forms, toss in the apples, and stir until tender.  The proportion of ingredients varies based on the amount of apples included.

Mercifully no one calls us for political reasons.  Our main number is answered by a live person who routes to either Ron or me.  Love the look of that pie, you are very clever.  A

How rude the politicians are with their constant bothers, which aren't even worth listening to.

Chicken Paprikash... one of my favorite dishes, Myrl. Can't remember the last time I had some. Love Hungarian food... and the spicier, the better.

Hi Myrl- love your new profile photo!  And you must be an amazing cook!!!! I'm going to try your apple recipe and may have to buy some Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream to go with it!!!!!   And I'm amazed at all of the paper that has been wasted every day when I open my mailbox!!!

I did not know you like Hungarian food, Myrl. I can teach you to make Kappashtatasta. I'm not sure how you spell it but my grandmother on my father's side was 100% Hungarian and she taught me how to make it. That peach pie looks fabulous, too!!
