Magyar Ünnep--Hungarian Feast

We got to try out many of the recipes the members taught us on our mission in Sopron when we hosted at our house a party for the ward high priests.
Here's a closer look: Marika's paprikas csirke (Chicken Paprika)
Pörkölt (beef stew), cooked in a crock pot rather than in a caldron over an open fire outdoors like Csaba taught us.
Galuska ("betsies") to put under the above two dishes. (I learned this from my grandmother.)
My favorite, rakolt krumpli (potatoes layered with kolbasz (Polish sausage), sliced hard boiled eggs, sour cream and cheese). 90 year old Gizi taught us this.
Andi's red cabbage.
Judit's cucumber salad.
Andi's stuffed pork chops.
Lots of pickles, of course
and for dessert, lots of alma rétes (apple strudel) and palacsintas (crepes) stuffed with bananas and Nutella or turo (cottage cheese) and raisins--first taught us by Sandor when we home taught him.
Everything was delicious.
