...the hens still lay. and lay. and lay.
I'm still spending a lot of time lately visiting my MIL. She is doing better but the doctors are keeping her in critical care. But I did get a few free hours the other day. And since the eggs are still multiplying in the fridge(especially the duck eggs), I used that time to make some egg noodles. I had a relaxing time of rolling out noodles while my mind wandered all over the universe. I solved all the world's problems, made up some new verses to a couple of my favorite songs, and shooed beagles out of the kitchen-a very nice "alone and loving it" time!
I also made a huge mess!
Egg Noodle Recipe
Ingredients for each batch:
Approx. 1 Cup flour (I use all-purpose)
1/2 teaspoon each salt and baking powder
1 duck egg or large chicken egg
Combine dry inredients. Crack duck egg into flour mix. Fill up 1/2 egg shell (the bigger half-I can never crack them even!) with water and add to flour mix. Stir well and add more flour or water if needed. Roll out on floured surface. Slice into noodle shape with sharp knife or- if you want to buy a noodle cutter like your grandma had, google herb mincer as that is what they call them nowadays. Let noodles air dry a few hours. Freeze until ready to use.
