Seems like all my blog posts are always about sewing, and everyone probably thinks I don't do anything else. Well, sewing/quilting is what makes me happy and I love it, so who says I have to do anything else??? Sometimes I actually cook...really I do. (My 3 furry critters still prefer their Fancy Feast over my cooking. What do they know?)
Even though I don't live in a snowy state anymore since retiring to Texas, when the days are cold, I always want to put a pot of something simmering on the stove. It has been cold here for a couple days 20's to 30's, so no better time to make some homemade noodles.
There's really not a recipe, as I learned to cook by watching my Mama, growing up in a restaurant my folks owned, and nothing like "just doing it"...kinda like learning to sew or quilt.
Maybe seeing the pictures will help......let me know.
6 large free range chicken egg yolks, (save the egg whites for an omelet) a couple spoonfuls of cold water, salt. Beat with fork, add plenty of flour and keep stirring, adding flour....until you can handle the dough and it's not sticky anymore. Roll out fairly thin on a floured surface.
Roll up into one long tube...like making cinnamon rolls. Cut with sharp knife...plenty of flour on counter, unroll each noodle...shake 'em around a bit with plenty of flour.
Spread them out on a clean muslin flour sack towel (again plenty of flour so they don't stick together) and let them dry until time to cook. I try to make them in the morning and let them dry out all day long. I do loosen them up and scatter them around a couple times during the day...they dry out better. I also froze a big bag of them for Chicken 'n Noodles next time.
You can cook chicken or beef stew chunks. This time it was beef chunks. I flour mine, and brown in a little hot oil, lower heat and cook until tender, salt and pepper, and then add water or Swanson broth, bring to boil....add noodles, cover and cook until tender.
Yummy!! and sure did enjoy my big bowlful last night.
Ok..now I can eat for a couple days and not have to cook. It's back to the sewing room for me.
Thanks for stopping by and if you make my noodles, be sure to let me know.
