I've been sick and home from work all week. Nasty, nasty, cold that knocked me off my feet. Yesterday I was starving for chicken noodle soup, so I put a chicken with some onion, carrots, celery and water in the electric kettle and went back to bed.
A few hours later I picked the chicken meat off the bones, bones back into the pot for further simmering, another nap ;-) Later when I woke up I considered just throwing some rice into the pot and calling it good. But_no_I had to have my noodles.
I looked at a few egg noodle recipes and chose the easiest one I found. Here's what I did.
The recipe called for 1 cup of flour, make a well in the middle of the flour to which a whole egg is added. Add 1/2 egg shell of milk and mix. The dough should be soft and a little sticky, add more milk if necessary. Flour the board and roll out thin.
I wanted_noodles_so I made mine a little thicker. I rolled the dough up and cut it into rounds. Unroll the rounds then,
drop into boiling chicken soup.
It tasted soooo good, I mean really, really, good. It was even great for breakfast this morning.
I think it's working it's magic already.
