Instructions
  1. Make the dressing by combining all ingredients and whisking until smooth. You could use a blender to get it really smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Place the cooled, drained pasta in a large bowl.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of the dressing to the pasta and toss to combine.
  5. Add in the chicken, spinach, mandarin oranges, craisins/cranberries, green onion, parmesan cheese and toasted almonds.
  6. Drizzle dressing over the top (to taste, you may not want to use it all), and toss everything to combine. Serve immediately.

Instructions
  1. Slice the beef across the grain into thin strips. Salt and pepper the beef to taste.
  2. Melt half of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Brown the hamburger or sear the beef strips until browned on all sides. Remove from pan to a plate and set aside.
  4. Melt the remaining half of butter in the same skillet.
  5. Cooking the veggies: start with the onion, give them a couple of minutes to start turning a bit translucent, then add the garlic, give it all a stir or two, then add the mushrooms. The garlic shouldn't really take much longer than the mushrooms. Cook until it's all tender and smells amazing!
  6. Sprinkle the flour over the cooked vegetables in the skillet and stir for one minute.
  7. Turn the heat to low and whisk in the beef broth slowly.
  8. Allow the broth mixture to come to a simmer and thicken.
  9. Once the mixture has thickened, stir in the Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, paprika, and sour cream.
  10. Stir in the beef and simmer over low heat for 5 minutes.
  11. Serve over hot cooked egg noodles.
Recipe Notes

Steve wants more sour cream flavor, so we're going to add more sour cream, and I'm increasing the bits for the sauce - I think it needs more sauce!  I also think I was perhaps a bit anxious about getting dinner done - or maybe just hungry - so I didn't cook down the sauce enough, so we'll be working on that too.  Sorry, I'm horrible with timing stuff, and really, really good with just dumping ingredients in, but I'll try to document this one a bit better.

Hope you enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Place the potatoes in a medium-size pot and cover them with enough water to extend 2 inches above the surface of the potatoes. Salt the water and bring to boil over medium-high heat. Continue cooking until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and slice into 1/4-inch rounds.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once crisp, place on a paper towel-lined plate and crumble into small pieces. Pour off the rendered fat, reserving 1/4 cup in the pan. Turn the heat to medium and add the onion. Cook until translucent and just beginning to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, mustard, and salt and stir until thick and bubbly. Add the sliced, cooked potatoes and toss to coat. Top with the crumbled bacon and garnish with the chives. Serve warm.
