Weekly Feature: The Grad Lounge – Sunny With a Chance of Meatballs!

4 Comments

I know the popular book and movie title is “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”, but it’s supposed to be sunny today so sunny it is!  My brother and I are like giddy little kids when it comes to meatballs because we love them so much, especially love turkey ones!  And although I have this weird food and eating quirk where I have to have even amounts of food on my plate (so I kind of eat my food in a circle or in a rotation), all bets are off when it comes to pasta and meatballs because my brother and I will both leave a few till the very end so we can enjoy the best parts for last, ha 😀  I loved this Grad Lounge dish, meatball goulash with egg noodles, yummy!  I normally eat meatballs with spaghetti, fusilli, or penne, so having it with egg noodles was a nice switch up for me.

Goulash is a traditional Hungarian soup or stew (which has also been taken up and incorporated into other European cuisines such as German, Austrian, Slovakian, and Dutch among others) made with meat (most often with beef, pork, veal, or lamb), onions, vegetables, and spices.  A number of goulash varieties are served with pasta and The Grad Lounge’s meatball goulash is served on a bed of egg noodles and made with ground beef, potatoes, sweet potato mash, onions, and carrots with caraway seeds, some garlic, and I believe thyme too.  The potatoes and mash and meatballs were super soft and yummy and made me giddy with meatball glee!

    • I’m in the mood to make some of my own! I made some homemade ones at a holiday party years ago with some friends and it was really fun. Turkey ones for me, all the way 🙂
