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.
