We had our Goulash Soup for lunch on Saturday accompanied by some wonderful crusty Italian bread freshly baked by wonderful friend Giovanni. It was simply YUMMMY! It is winter here in South Africa and the soup was the perfect meal to warm us all up. I think that next time I might add some more vegetables but it is a very good recipe just as it is.
