Hugarian Paprika

My good friend Sheri and her husband spent a few weeks in Eastern Europe last month. They toured Prague, Croatia, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia and Czech Republic. I was bummed that she was gone because I didn't have my friend and HLS partner to talk to:( However, it was all worth it because she brought back some Hungarian Paprika for me. OMG. Authentic Hungarian Paprika from Hungary!! How excellent was that? Very excellent. Yes, it is very different from the paprika you get at your local market.

Tonight, I made Chicken Paprikas with potato dumpings. This recipe called for instant mashed potatoes for the dumplings but the German in me knows how to deal with real taters, so I stayed authentic here. Sorry, no photos because our digicam is still broken. I have got to tell you, this paprika made my chicken so delicious I didn't want to stop eating it. I wanted to eat and eat and eat and eat. But quickly realized that the run and plyo workout I had just finished would be for nothing. So, I only had a normal dinner portion in the hopes to maintain my girlish figger:)

Thanks again for the paprika Sheri, I love it:)

I've never had real Hungarian paprika. I have an aunt-by-marriage who is Hungarian, but she can't cook to save her life. And she actually spent most of her childhood in Argentina, so I don't think she'd know what to do with paprika even if she could cook.

It all sounds delish, though!

Sigh... I miss your pictures, but at least I do not have sudden hunger pangs after reading your blog anymore. :)
