Then I put up a Hungarian Pot Roast. Part of my ancestry is Hungarian and having tired for the moment of the Southern Cooking routine I started gravitating to Hungarian cooking. Dad has an excellent Hungarian cookbook from New Brunswick, NJ dating to the 50's after the refugees came over after the Hungarian Revolution. These recipes are quite true to form and not the "adulterated" type you see on the internet.
After dinner it was time for the cake and Happy Birthday to be sung. I rather enjoyed the fruits of our labor today, especially the cake. It is quite rich and sweet, best taken in smaller slices, however all the flavors meld together most harmoniously.
I will be posting the 2 recipes next week on Tuesday (Black Forest Cake) and Thursday (Hungarian Pot Roast). Until then I bid you a good weekend and GO BRONCOS!
