We’ll do a little updating on this later in the day, something suitable for a wintery Valentine’s dinner, but for now, with love from Lucy:

lucille ball goulash

Note: I think “Accent” was MSG — unless you want a banging headache leave it out.

    Thank you, it sounds delicious. In fact I tried the ‘real’ Goulash in Hungary (Budapest) and that was horrible, the thick layer of oil on top of the soup …. I was quite disappointed, when Goulash is supposed to be originated from Hungary, I hope this recipe works better!

      It’s not at all authentic but it’s easy to prepare and very tasty!

        haha, thank you, I will give it a try.

    I love Lucy’s recipe notes. I find the relationship between her and Desi fascinating. Especially because evidently, in real life, Lucy wasn’t very funny. Desi was the funny one. She was a comic genius with perfect timing, but I think poor Desi was underrated.

      Hey Madame! Desi was fascinating, a great businessman, nightclub entertainer, and married someone who looked a whole hell of a lot like Lucy after they were divorced…

        He did? I did not know that. I guess he liked the redheads!

    This recipe actually looks pretty good. Maybe I’ll try it?

      Try it! Simple and good. More like American spaghetti than goulash – but yummy.

    A good quick albeit totally unscientific and unfair :)) way to judge a person : Do they like I Love Lucy? If they don’t find the antics of Lucy and Vivian Vance funny and Ricky saying “oww, LUCY!” for the umpteenth time doesn’t bring a smile to their face, I’m afraid they may well be a dead-loss, also check that they have a pulse they may be a pod-person!
    It’s kind of sad that “real-life” wasn’t so happy, but that’s the romantic in me.
    Apart from everything else they did, the legacy of Desilu itself is pretty impressive.

      Good comedy always seems fresh. Like “I Love Lucy” I could watch an Eddie Izzard routine over and over, however the movies of Judd Apatow I can only stomach once…

        Curious, that… 😉

    A friend was talking about goulash and we couldn’t think exactly what it was, this actually looks more appetizing then what we were coming up with. I may give it a go too.

      Goulash is a beef stew made with about a cup of paprika and topped with sour cream – it’s very hearty.
