Tonight I didn’t have dinner planned.  Although I had just went to the market and spent a fortune, it still felt like I didn’t have a thing to make.  Well, at least nothing I could make fast and fill up three hungry guys and one hungry gal in a hurry.  No wait…ground beef stroganoff with noodles, that’s the ticket.  It’s a definite go-to for busy weekends or weeknight dinners…hearty, yet simple and lots of amazing flavor.  I think this is better than your typical stew meat stroganoff.  You still get the old-fashioned dinner, but with a quick spin on it.  The east coast went from 80 degrees to 40 degrees this weekend, so this dinner came with perfect timing.  A hot, comfort food that you’re whole family will love.
