"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Directions:
Directions:
Brown the ground beef, adding onion and garlic at the end and sauté until onion is softened and almost translucent. Add all the tomatoes and mix together. Add sugar, salt and pepper. Add macaroni, place a lid on the pot and cook until al dente. (If the mixture is a bit dry prior to adding the macaroni you can add a small can of tomatoes and adjust seasoning accordingly. Watch carefully because the macaroni cooks quickly.) When macaroni is done, remove from heat and add celery. Mix celery into the goulash and serve.

Great with crusty bread and cole slaw.

Personal Notes:
I still have the handwritten recipe card my dear, dear Grandma Huss gave me with the instructions written up for my recipe box. It is hard to read the handwriting but I love the special notes she included in the recipe.

When she mentions the garlic, she includes a gentle caution "Careful, now . . . just one toe of garlic. You don't want to overdo it." She also counsels not to break up the ground beef too much. She liked it chunky so the meaty flavor could be savored. The final suggestion to add the celery just before serving, a step that Charlie always wanted me to skip altogether. :-)
