Sunday Dinner At Grandma's Day 1 { A Gooseberry Patch Review & Giveaway}

Sunday dinners at Grandma's. Oh the images those words can conjure up in our heads. Maybe an Italian grandma slaving away over the stove all day making the perfect "gravy" for over some pasta. Or maybe a little lady taking a roast chicken from the oven with mashed potatoes boiling away stove top. Any way you cut it, the images lead to loved ones gathered around the table, enjoyed delicious food cooked with love.

For me, growing up 6 hours away from both of my grandmas, I wasn't lucky enough to have a lot of Sunday dinners with them, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate how special it is! Plus, my son is so blessed to grow up about 20 minutes away from both of his grandmas, so he will be able to have those memories I was never able to. 

And now, thanks to my friends at Gooseberry Patch and their new cookbook, Sunday Dinner at Grandma's, we can all enjoy dishes that would make any granny proud, any day of the week! Oh, the yummy things they compiled in this one! It's cover to cover filled with so much deliciousness!


The minute I saw the word goulash, I was intrigued. Then when I went on to read the recipe, my curiosity was only solidified. This dish is unlike any goulash we've ever had. Okay, it has ground beef in it, but that is where the similarities end. Well, that and the fact they are super simple, perfect for a weeknight and sure to please your hungry bunch. To me, this tastes like something the cowboys would eat out on the trail off the chuck wagon! So hearty and full of protein, veggies and a little chili kick!

Be sure to read the note in the recipe to see the additions I made to the original recipes. Oh, and scroll down to the end of the post to see how you can win a copy of Sunday Dinner at Grandma's for yourself! Or maybe for your grandma!

Country Goulash
Submitted by Amy Woods Collinsville, TX Found on pg. 154
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
16 oz. pkg. tri-color rotnini, cooked
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, drained
1 (16 oz.) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
3 TBS chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt

In a large saucepan over medium heat, brown beef with garlic, onion and pepper. Drain. Add cooked pasta and remaining ingredients; toss to coat. Heat through over low heat. Serves 4-6. *NOTE* I used 1 tsp. garlic powder instead of fresh clove. I also added 2 TBS Worcestershire sauce after meat was browned. I topped mine with about 1/4 c. Monterrey Jack cheese and chopped green onions.

My favorite thing my Grandma used to make was homemade biscuits with sausage gravy!

I had two wonderful grandmas who were both super cooks! My maternal grandma made the most wonderful "berry pie" from the wild dewberries we picked every spring. She spoiled us by using only the juice, and it was delicious. I've never had any that tasted as good as hers.
My other grandma made the very best buttermilk biscuits ever! My mom did learn to make them, but I'm really sorry I never learned it!
Thanks for the chance to win, I love Gooseberry Patch!

My grandmother made the best fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. It all went together. She fried her chicken in cast iron skillets and the put them in a roaster in the over with a bit of water to steam it. '

I'd love a chance to see other recipes from Grandmothers.

Wishes for tasty dishes,
Linda

My grandma used to make the best fried chicken, scalloped corn, mashed potatoes and gravy. Always a pie for dessert. I can almost taste it just thinking about it.

My favorite recipe that my Grandmother used to make is "Pork Chops w/ scalloped potatoes". Really it was EVERYTHING she ever cooked or baked, but, that was and still is my favorite.

Chicken & Noodles. All of us have tried to replicate her recipe and while they are good, they aren't great like Grandma's.

Colleen said...

Honestly, I didn't know either one of my grandmothers while growing up, but my mother made an old family recipe of Beef Stew

Amy Jo Ransom said...

My favorite dish Grandma Susie made was Beef & Homemade Noodles! When I grew up I realized a lot of people would call our noodles "dumplings"! She passed when I was 13 but as an adult I found her recipe & started making them myself. The best compliment I ever received was when I made the Beef & Noodles for my Dads birthday & my Grandpa leaned over to my Aunt & said if I didn't know better I would have thought Sue made these noodles herself! I learned more from her in my 1st 13 years than I have in the past 38 she has been gone!
