Comfort Food

We have been eating a lot of comfort food lately. Probably because we’ve been taking turns getting sick and what’s better than homemade chicken noodle soup when you’re sick? Between soups and casserole’s, we’ve been eating a lot of egg noodles. I have some leftovers that I have been trying to figure out what to do with. I stumbled on a really delish Beef Stroganoff recipe and edited it a little based on what I had on hand. It turned out yummy. Everyone liked it, even the littlest Bits. Here are the details:

Beef Stroganoff 


  • 2-4 tbsp butter
  • 1lb sirloin strips
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 – 10.5 oz can condensed beef broth
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 carton diced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tsp worchestershire
  • 1/3 cup sourcream
  • 1/2 package of egg noodles – cooked


  1. Melt the butter over medium heat. Quickly brown the beef and move to the side of the pan.
  2. Add the onions and mushrooms. Cook for several minutes until the onions are translucent. Move to the side of the pan with the beef.
  3. Add the flour into the juices and stir constantly.
  4. Add the beef broth and continue stirring until combined.
  5. Add the mustard and Worcestershire.
  6. Cover and simmer for 45min-1hour. The beef will be very tender.
  7. Add the sourcream about 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Serve over cooked egg noodles.

It’s pretty creamy so I recommend eating it with some veggies and a salad.

Yesterday after work/school we ran and rode bikes over to Sunrise park. It’s about 1.5 miles from our house and it’s right on the Charleston Harbor. You can see Downtown, the Ravenel Bridge, Sullivan’s Island and Fort Sumter. You can watch the big cargo liners come in and there are almost always lots of other boats out. It’s a beautiful spot that is still a little bit of a hidden gem on James Island. It was windy, which we decided is better than buggy. Why do the bugs come out when the weather gets nice?!

Here’s where your doggie rides when she is just too old to keep up but doesn’t want to be left behind. She kept jumping out and because she is deaf and almost blind, Luke kept having to go back and find her. Next time we will leash her in! Dakota is 14 and she is our first baby. We recently found out that she has kidney disease so we are trying to make her last time with us special.
