And alas, when I am time starved, the last thing I want to do is cook. And clean up the kitchen. But somehow last weekend, I mustered the energy to cook beef stroganoff. And it was pretty darn good. I found the recipe on the back of a package of Publix brand egg noodles that was taking up space in the pantry. I amazingly had every ingredient on hand. The recipe was easy, yummy, and made enough for lunch the next day. I do believe this recipe is a keeper.
