Amazing Old Fashioned Goulash

For me, old fashioned goulash is one of those meals that makes me want to curl up on the couch wrapped in a blanket.




I definitely needed it today.

All day I couldn’t decide what I should make for dinner.

Between a toddler that throws epic tantrums and a preschooler who misses the potty often, I just didn’t have it in me to make anything fancy today.

I was seriously tempted to just order a pizza. Then I thought of this meal and realized it was perfect. It’s fast, easy, and delicious.
