Copycat Potatoes Stroganoff

Ok, ok, ok. I’m kind of tired of this homebound, self-isolation thing.

It’s been…I don’t know how long. I’ve lost count of the days. I’ve got my little routine that I stick to, just like I would if the world is normal. But I miss driving to work. Heck, I miss driving period. I haven’t gotten in my car and gone ANYWHERE in weeks.

I miss seeing people, faces, and conversing with others at work. I even miss the little fits we would get into on the rare occasion that we’d disagree with each other. I miss the smell of those godforsaken Bradford Pear trees outside of the station. I miss the blinding flourescent lights (flourescent lights! Who could have guessed people would miss those!).

I like my work corner I’ve set up at home, but I’m ready to get back to my desk at the station. I’m ready to eat my dinner out of a small tupperware dish.

It’s the little things you miss during times like these.

I’ll just continue trudging forward on this whole stay-at-home bit. I’ve got a fully stocked kitchen and won’t have to go to the grocery store again for another few weeks. I’ve got blankets, and kitties to pet and keep me company, and card games to play with my husband.

I made this dinner at the beginning of our quarantine. I remember loving Hamburger Helper Stroganoff when I was younger, and I loved the more obscure Potatoes Stroganoff even more. It’s creamy and savory and has a zest to it.

Potatoes stroganoff is the ultimate comfort food.

I think we all need “ultimate comfort foods” right now.

Enjoy!
