Beef Noodles Romanoff

Ok, so I've never made noodles romanoff before. Actually, I never even heard of it until about a week ago. I was looking for recipe ideas to use what I already had in the house and found it. I decided that I would try it tonight. When I made my menu plan on Sunday, I made a grocery list that included all of the ingredients that I would need to make everything on my list, so I knew I had everything. So, usually, when I find a recipe online that I want to try, I bookmark it. Then, I set the laptop on the counter and start cooking. Well, tonight, when I went to look for the recipe, I couldn't find it. I Googled it and most recipes that I found called for tomato sauce, which I don't have today. Plus, I already went to the store today (for 2 things) and came out with five bags -not plastic bags either, five reusable totes! Anyway, I decided to just make up my own thing and use bits from all of the recipes that I saw, and added things that I like. I really liked how it turned out. It is really a comfort-y food. It reminds me a little of stroganoff. The kids liked it. They even ate the hidden veggies in it. D isn't home yet, but I'm sure he will like it. I will be pretty mad if he dumps a bottle of hot sauce on it, though. I'm just sayin'....
