Noodle Making

Did you make the noodles? :) What did you do with them?

Livi made the dough, I rolled and cut them, and Mama bubbled them in her chicken broth until they were done. Mama made a wonderful chicken noodle soup to go over mashed potatoes for supper. It was delicious. The potatoes swirl in and make the soup thick by the end of your bowlful. :)

Have you seen Kung Fu Panda? This post made me laugh thinking about it. :) "My son, finally having the noodle dream!" :) (You probably won't understand that comment if you haven't seen the movie) :)

Love you!

I would just LOVE the recipe. I have been wanting to start making our pasta for a very long time :) Thankful for a look into your beautiful life, I'm new here but I'm really enjoying it!

Katya said...

Yes, Emmy, I have. :) Caleb's sibs came over for supper a couple of weeks ago and they rented a copy of "Kung Fu Panda" so we could see it. The noodle dream part really cracked me up! Actually a lot of the movie cracked me up... I wish I could Kung Fu. :)
Love you back!
Sarena~ The noodle recipe is my Great Grammy's, and unfortunately I don't even think I have a copy of the recipe. I will see if I can get it. I have a similar one in another book. It's just a simple white flour/water/egg/salt one, I believe.

Kat and Sarena,

Here's the recipe. :)

1 whole egg
3 egg yolks
3 T. cold water
2 c. flour

Mix the eggs and water with a fork, slowly add flour 'til it forms a ball and holds together. (note: it never seems to need the whole 2 cups of flour in my experience. More like 1 and a half)
Roll onto floured board, roll thin. Cut into strips. Let dry 1-2 hours. Drop into boiling beef or chicken broth. Cook until tender 20-30 minutes.

Yummy. That sounds so good! Mom used to do that too, except she'd make a noodle-chicken gravy thing so it would start thick and get thicker. So delicious.
I knew those had to be Grammy's noodles. :)

Thank you SO much for sharing this recipe with me! I would love to know the name of your great grammy so that I can write it with the recipe! Thanks again!
