Noodle Day

Larry wasn't feeling well today--he's been working hard on several different things and I think it's catching up with him. It could be a cold trying to catch hold, so I decided on that time-honored tradition of making chicken noodle soup for him.

Except I had no chicken and no noodles. But I did have turkey frozen from Thanksgiving that needed to be used up, and I had eggs and flour.

So it turned into a noodle-making day. I can make noodles in less time than it takes to get to town to the store anyway.

An hour later, the noodles were hanging to dry and the soup was underway. And when it was done, a grateful husband ate a good bowl or two before heading off for a nap.

He's feeling better this evening, so you see? It works! I have plenty left over for more soup too.

I used my Kitchenaid mixer to mix the ingredients (4 eggs, 2 tablespoons of water and 1 1/2 cups of flour), then kneaded by hand for a few minutes, then let it rest 10 minutes before cutting into 5 sections and rolling each one out to go through the pasta machine. So easy. And so good.

  1. I hope Larry's soon feeling better, though I'd be tempted to stay poorly a bit longer in hopes of more soup!

  2. Thanks, John. He's feeling better but I'm trying to get him to rest. Man's hard to keep still.

  3. Homemade chicken noodle soup, good for the soul and body. I'm impressed that you made your own noodles.

  4. I think I need to do this for my husband today.

  5. Oh, that brings back so many memories of my grandmother's chicken and her homemade noodles.She didn't hang them out like that, though, that's a very interesting method - gives a much longer noodle.

    I've been following your blog for about three weeks now, very interesting. Thanks!

  6. Homemade noodles! Yum. Haven't done that in years!
    I've been battling some kind of bug for about a week and a half already - keep thinking it's wound down to "just a cold" and then I suddenly feel dizzy again. I even told the carpenters to stay away one day! Good news is, I was able to keep everyone fed and watered and comfortable even on the dizziest of days. I rarely get ill (my issues tend to be the chronic pain type) so I can't complain at all - but I'd feel a hundred times worse if I thought the critters weren't getting proper care.
