After being out hunting from sunrise until sunset, I was trying to think of something suitable to eat. As I shivered while pondering, it occurred to me…SOUP! So, then one of the hunters in our group, Coral Maxwell, made goulash, and that got me thinking…is there a goulash soup recipe for those cold nights after being out all day? Well, yes, there is! And, even better yet, it includes wild game meat!
Check out this recipe I found, and let us know what you think:
