We are experiencing typical March weather.  One minute snow the next minute sun.

Very pretty to look at, however it is already almost all gone.  I did want to tell you all that yesterday I made chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles.  At first, I was very hesitant as I have never made noodles before.  These were very easy to make and everyone (to my surprise) loved them.  I will definitely be making them again.  I got the recipe from a new to me blog-penniesandpancakes.blogspot.  I have made several of her recipes this week and have been impressed with all of them.  Definitely keepers!

Well, I better get busy.  We are trying a new recipe out tonight.  It must be my week for new recipes.  Do any of you get the magazine Kraft Food & Family?  It comes out every 3 months. My spring copy came in the mail yesterday.   My darling daughter, Jess, gets herself and me a subscription.  Thanks Jess!  I really love the magazine.  It is full of easy, good recipes.  Tonights new recipe comes from this magazine.  It is called spaghetti with shrimp and broccoli.  I’ll let you all know how it turns out.

Update on how it turned out-DELICIOUS!  Another keeper.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

 

 

Chicken Noodle Soup with Homemade Egg Noodles

Egg Noodles

Printed from Pennies & Pancakes

~ adapted from Better Homes and Gardens

*Makes about 1 pound of dry noodles


INGREDIENTS

2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for rolling out the dough)

1 tsp salt

2 egg yolks, beaten

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup water

1 tsp. vegetable oil


DIRECTIONS

In a large bowl stir together the flour and the salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. In a small bowl stir together egg yolks, whole egg, water, and oil. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; mix well.

Sprinkle a kneading surface with flour. Turn dough out onto floured surface. Knead until dough is smooth and elastic (8 to 10 minutes total). Cover and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough to about 1/16 inch. Let stand, uncovered, for at least 20 minutes.

Lightly dust the dough with flour. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into strips. The original recipe recommends 1/4 inch wide and 2-3 inches long. I cut mine larger, because that’s how we like them. How you cut them depends on how you like your noodles. They will expand when cooked.

To serve immediately, cook until tender but still firm, with no doughiness in the middle. Drain.

To store cut noodles, let them dry about 1 hour or until completely dry. I turn them over so that both sides get exposed to the air. Place dry noodles in an airtight container or ziplock bag and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Or place in a freezer bag or freezer container and freeze for up to 8 months.

Favorite Chicken Noodle Soup

Printed from Pennies & Pancakes

*Makes 6 servings (about 12 cups)

INGREDIENTS

8 cups chicken stock (or chicken broth)

1 cup cooked chicken, chopped

3 large carrots, peeled and chopped

1 large celery stalk, finely chopped

1 1/2 cups homemade egg noodles (or 2 cups store-bought)

1 dried bay leaf, crushed (opt.)

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

 

DIRECTIONS

In a large pot, bring chicken stock, carrots, celery, crushed bay leaf, salt, and pepper to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and let cook till carrots are softening, but still mostly firm (8-10 minutes).

Add the chicken and noodles, cover, and let cook, uncovered, until the noodles are completely cooked through (15 -20 minutes). Taste, and adjust salt and pepper if desired.

Serve immediately, or store in covered containers in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or in the freezer 2-3 months.
