Karl’s Paprikás Csirke (Hungarian Chicken Paprikash)

Jan’s friends are coming for Stitches—a gathering of knitters— and I thought I would make chicken paprikash for one of their meals. Traditional Hungarian chicken paprikash (Paprikás Csirke) is chicken slowly simmered with pork lard, onions, green peppers and seasoned with paprika and sour cream.

Karl’s Hungarian Porkolt (pork stew)

When Jan came back from Disneyland, she asked me to make the crackers she had refused before she had left. Normally, with something like fresh crackers I would serve a “deli-dinner,” a selection of cheeses, cold cuts, and deli-salads. Jan decided that that was not what she wanted, because she had been eating “deli-food” for three days.
