Wednesdays Unplugged – Bob’s Beef Stroganoff

NOTE: I spend my Wednesdays Unplugged from appointments. It's my day to stay home, enjoy cooking and welcome our kids and grandkids for dinner in the evening. We end our meal with quotes from the Norwegian 'Quote Cup' passed on to me from my grandmother. I share a quote and a recipe here each week, and sometimes some photos of family fun. I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!


"Before someone's tomorrow has been taken away, cherish those you love, appreciate them today." ~ Michelle C. Ustaszeski

Bob-r-s2a This holiday season has been bittersweet as we lovingly remember close family members lost to us this year. The tomorrows of our daughter-in-law's father, Grandpa Bob, were suddenly taken away a year ago tomorrow but his legacy of kindness and generosity live on both in cherished memories and in the lives of those he touched and left behind. Show and tell those you love that you cherish them… often.


This week's recipe is Grandpa Bob's Beef Stroganoff, which he made many times through the years from a recipe passed down through his family that may have even come from his father. We had it for Christmas this year, a tangible remembrance of how families continue to touch the lives of generations to follow.
