    Good morning, everybody…

    I’ve been having a reading fest this past couple of months.
    Carrie Vaughn released her new Kitty Norville book, the second one this year at the end of July.
    There was the new J.A. Jance book continuing her Ali series.
    Stephen King’s “Under the Dome”, (the, for lack of a better term, author’s cut,— the reason there are editors) on which the television series is based, was tackled at the same time as “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” by Ian Fleming (still unfinished but only about 18 pages to go), “Heads in Beds” by Jacob Tomsky (an exposé of the hotel business) (finished) “The Fifth Wave” by Rick Yancey (finished) .
    I tried to get into King’s “The Stand,” but put it down after about 15 pages. I find King a very “semi-hit-or-definite-miss” author. In my opinion he’s lazy. Every time he runs out of something for a character to say, he throws in a superfluous obscenity, and his plot work needs tightening. He can do it, “Dolan’s Cadillac” and “The Things They Left Behind, “ come to mind, but he doesn’t do it often, or at least not often enough for me.

    Avoid the “Under The Dome” television show it is bad!!

    It may be a bit warm for this, but here’s a nice hardy soup named after Hungary.

    Hungarian Goulash Soup (Gulyás Magyar)
    (credited to: Maria Louisa Scott and Jack Denton Scott)

    2 Tablespoons butter
    1 1/2 pounds lean beef chuck, cut into 1” cubes
    1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons crushed caraway seeds
    2 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced, or 1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes, drained and coarsely chopped
    2 sweet red peppers, seeded, de-ribbed and diceds
    7 cups beef broth
    2 medium-sized potatoes, diced
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 1/2 teaspoons Hungarian paprika

    1.In a large pot, melt the butter. Add the beef and brown it.
    2.Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes.
    3.Stir in the salt and caraway seeds. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
    4.Stir in the tomatoes and peppers and 1/2 cup of the beef broth. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes. Add a little more broth from time to time, as needed.
    5.Addd the potatoes, remaining beef broth, thyme, black pepper and paprika and stir well. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the meat and potatoes are fork tender.
    6.Taste for seasoning and serve.

    Note: If you like, do as the Hungarians and Austrians do and add 1/4 pound cooked and drained thin noodles to the soup just before serving and accompany the soup with plenty of crusty bread and cold beer. The Austrians also favor a young red wine as the beverage.

    The following quote comes from here.

    “Hungarian paprika is considered the national spice of Hungary and it appears in the country’s most celebrated dish, goulash. Hungarian paprika is made from peppers that are harvested and then sorted, toasted, and blended to create different varieties. All Hungarian paprikas have some degree of rich, sweet red pepper flavor, but they range in pungency and heat. The eight grades of Hungarian paprika are különleges (“special quality”; mild and most vibrant red), csípősmentes csemege (delicate and mild), csemege paprika (similar to the previous but more pungent), csípős csemege (even more pungent), édesnemes (“noble sweet”; slightly pungent and bright red), félédes (semi-sweet with medium pungency), rózsa (mildly pungent and pale red), and erős (hottest and light brown to orange). In the US, what is marketed as Hungarian sweet paprika is usually the édesnemes variety.”

    Also it is, apparently, National chocolate pecan pie day. So here’s a link to a recipe.

    Also on this day, Benjamin Harrison, 23rd President of the United States was born in Ohio in 1833. You can thank his administration (1889-1893) for the “Sherman Antitrust Act” which outlawed monopolies." During his term in office Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, and South Dakota joined the Union, and Oklahoma was established as a territory.
