Back from Westwind and decided to cook. I took a brief glance at this very tempting Autumn Beef Stew but decided it was impractical as I don’t have beef broth and no cubes to make it either, so went instead with this Beef Goulash with Paprika. Making it was a breeze and it is currently simmering merrily away on my stove(well, perhaps slightly less than merrily given that I realized I don’t have a lid for that particular pan). It underwent interesting transformations however because I could’ve sworn I was making spaghetti sauce – it has the same basic ingredients – and then after I added water it just appears to be beef soup with unusually large chunks of beef in i, and yet apparently it is neither because it’s supposed to be eaten over noodles. Interesting. As long as it tastes good I would definitely make it again, simple ingredients and quick preparation(my main fear now is that it will turn out to be taste like the dreaded beef stroganoff, which I hate.
Am now drinking boba my roomies kindly brought back and up next: finishing off the Ethan Hawke Hamlet for class, which is not only one of the most brilliant films I’ve ever seen, but also features an extremely hot Ethan Hawke – I’ve always favored the man ever since Before Sunset but his attractiveness comes and goes. As Hamlet – mmmmm. After which I will work out and clean the bathroom.
Current song I’m obsessed with: Mix Tape by Butch Walker
