Looks great Jan. I've just returned from Hungary where I had the traditional Goulash and I use paprika on almost everything, so perfect for me!

This is a dish of spring. Caraway must smell better.

Hmmm, I love Savoy Cabbage! Sadly here the season is over. And no asparagus yet, either.

Easy to make and delicious.

This sounds good. I don't think I have ever used caraway seeds, so I am not sure how they taste. I will cook this recipe sometime and find out.

'Mince mess' or a variation of it appears on my partner's menu often. How I wish he would add the vegetables too.


La ternera suelo consumirla menos, frente a la carne de cerdo y de pollo.
