Hungarian Goulash

Tonight it is stormy and blustering outside.
For dinner tonight Alex and I both wanted something hearty and warm.
I remembered seeing a section in the January/February/March 2012 edition of Something Extra.  This is a free food magazine give out at the check stands of our local grocery store Raley’s.
Two recipes struck our fancy.
Saxon Potato Soup
and
Hungarian Goulash.
We opted for the Goulash since the Potato soup was similar to the Julia Child soup we had just a few weeks ago.
