Bad timing, subby. The window for crimes against humanity like this headline to receive a presidential pardon has just closed.

Oh wait, I was thinking of guilocity, which is the speed at which a legal advisor vacates the scene when they find out they've been working pro-bono without their knowledge or consent.

Whenever the company restaurant serves goulash, I spread it out on my plate in like these little islands that form a half-circle. There's always someone asking what I'm doing. "Why, I'm making a Goulash Archipelago."

Well now I want goulash.

I want to try goulash. The stew, that is. Looks like carne guisado.

Is that the website where you can book travel accommodations around the various circles of Hell?

Anyone have a good recipe for a traditional Hungarian goulash?

Hungarian paprika is the key

...Johnson was no light eater himself: he "indulged with such intenseness, that while in the act of eating, the veins of his forehead swelled, and generally a strong perspiration was visible."

Word. I put this spice on foods where any sane person would say it's wrong.Oatmeal, pan-fried steak, ice cream? Don't care, let's get Paprikey

Gulosity is a new Mortal Kombat finishing move. Instead of violently killing Kitana, Johnny Cage presents her with a bowl of delicious Hungarian goulash.
 
2021-01-20 2:12:11 PM  
Well, that's a word I've never heard before.

"I am sickened by the velocity of your gulosity."

Hey, it's got a lot of vitamin C and A, so you're doing yourself good. In my goulash, I use 3/4 Hungarian and 1/4 Spanish Smoked Sweet:

johnny_vegas: Hungarian paprika is the key


When my wife came over for a visit (we were waiting for the paperwork for permanent residency) she was rummaging in my kitchen to cook something and yelled out, "do you have any paprika?"  I walked over and pulled out the paprika I had just bought.  California paprika.

She opened the bottle.  Stared at it.  Sniffed it.  Stared again.  Sniffed again.  Held it up and said, "what is this?"

I am now better educated on the subject and have become a paprika snob.  Genuine Hungarian paprika all the way.

Mock26: Anyone have a good recipe for a traditional Hungarian goulash?


Look it up online.  If it is not a soup recipe, it isn't the real thing.  You want "gulyásleves".

For some reason back in the 50s some idiot decided to make some horrible leftover noodle casserole crap and call it Hungarian goulash

Hungarian goulash

Never had it in Europe but this was pretty darn good.
