So this last weekend we had a house full of people. On Sunday after breakfast, while everyone was off getting ready for the day, I was cleaning up. I was taking all the extra chairs back to the garage, doing the dishes, and that kind of thing. Well, when I was taking the chairs out to the garage I managed to twist my ankle, and fall down the stairs. I couldn’t get up, it was bad. It was a good thing my 8 year old was near the door and heard something, so he could get my husband. He helped me up and got me to the couch. My ankle instantly swelled up, and I couldn’t really walk. After lots of icing, wrapping, elevating, and staying off of it, I think I am finally on the mend. I am supposed to go skiing on Sunday, so I am hoping that I am back to normal by then!
Dinners this week have been interesting with me on the couch. Having a quick and easy dinner in the line up is great for weeks like this, and busy weeknights. Even if we are in a hurry, I don’t want dinner to be boring, and this is anything but boring. Before this, I had never had paprikash before. I use paprika a lot in recipes, so I am not sure why I have never tried it before. Better late than never though, right?
This will not be the last time that we have paprikash in our house either. The ingredients are all pantry staples, so it can be a last minute dinner on a busy night. I served over egg noodles, but rice or even quinoa would be great alternatives. I don’t like bell peppers, so I didn’t use them. But you could use bell peppers, or even add in other veggies if you wanted to. My 8 year old thought this was amazing, and he probably ate more that I did. The leftovers were great for lunch the next day.
