Chicken Paprikash

The cold is definitely upon us, it snowed in Portland earlier today and is supposed to continue tonight and through tomorrow. Seems like winter is coming a little early this year and I'm trying to keep warm with comforting foods. I felt like trying something new the other night and settled on chicken paprikash.

I was planning on making chicken and dumplings but didn't feel like trekking out to the store and magically had all the ingredients needed for the traditional Hungarian dish. I made a few modifications as I always seem to do. I substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream and added some garlic (because seriously why would you not add garlic?). I was feeling lazy so I instead of making those probably-really-delicious little dumplings I used some Bavarian spaetzle that was hanging out in my pantry, so good!

Dace Fall 2010

DACE Fall 2010 from Dace on Vimeo.

The Fall 2010 Dace collection has landed at Summerland, I just love the video they made to present the collection. Wish I was lounging around reading love letters in my cozy Kent dress in a gorgeous mid-century house by a fog wrapped lake. That would be nice.
