When I think of favorite meals from my childhood, Goulash tops the list.  I remember my mom, a busy single mom, rushing after work to get dinner on the table. Three kids barking “What’s for dinner?” from our squishy brown booth in a kitchen adorned with orange and brown flowered wallpaper. Mom cooking dinner in her work clothes, a long pencil skirt with a blouse stitched with shoulder pads and bouncing brunette hot rolled hair. It was the 1980s.

The Goulash meal was simple enough, cheap in cost to prepare and a great alternative to spaghetti night. My mom could quickly make it and settle into the next part of the evening and maybe even have time to take off her work clothes. A luxury I now treasure when I return home from work.

When I ask friends how they make Goulash there is never a same response. But it’s usually inspired by their mother’s recipe. My mom always made it with molasses but I’ve adapted mine to include brown sugar. I’ve heard of chunky tomatoes as an addition and even Velveeta cheese, no matter the additions or changes, it remains a family classic, especially in Minnesota.

  1. What can I substitute for the soup? I am gluten intolerant and thought maybe crushed tomatoes, but how much? Any ideas?
