I use the word “Pinterest” way too much around here, don’t I? I was thinking maybe I need to become one of those people who devotes her entire blog to testing Pinterest things. Because you know what? I’m one of those people who has started spending a lot of time testing Pinterest things. We’re going to talk about a recipe.
I made this tonight: Creamy Beef Stroganoff Casserole. Well, actually, I made it during naptime, stuck it in the fridge, then heated it up at dinnertime. I’m wondering if that’s why it was kind of weird, or if it’s the recipe itself that made it weird. If I make this again (and I might, because you know what? This baby I’m growing likes beef. Seriously. The Bear? He was a fresh pineapple and McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich kind of guy. Not so with this new baby. It’s all red meat, all the time. And mint chocolate chip ice cream. And this new baby would really, REALLY love it if Taco Bell would bring back the chilito. Seriously.)…
Aside: What the hell, Taco Bell??? When did you take the chilito off the menu? I mean, I know I haven’t been to you in a reeeeeeeaaaaallly long time, which is part of why this chilito craving is more random than…well, something random, but seriously? BRING BACK THE CHILITO!!!
Hey, maybe we can all start a Bring Back the Chilito movement! Who’s with me?
Anywho. I think I stopped that last sentence mid-sentence. Creamy Beef Stroganoff Casserole! It wasn’t all that creamy. In fact, it was kind of dry. Was that because I let all the sauce soak up into the noodles until dinnertime? Who knows. If I make it again, I think I’ll double the sauce ingredients and see what happens. Otherwise, it was pretty tasty. I added some stuff: salt, pepper, white pepper, sage, paprika, and onion powder, to be specific. I figured the instructions said, “ground beef is browned with some spices,” and then no spices (except garlic, which I pretty much tripled because me likey the garlic) were included in the instructions, so why not?
So: yay, not-so-creamy-beef-stroganoff-casserole!
This concludes my Pinterest recipe review for the night.
I was going to babble some more, but man, I am tired. Peace out, readers.
