Noodle Makin'

 I supervised Megan making noddles one morning. 
 If you haven't tried your hand at this it is fairly easy. 

You'll need:

2 cups of all purpose flour
3 eggs
1/4 tsp of salt

That's it.  See I told you, easy!

Make a "well" in your flour/salt mixture and add the eggs.
 Using a fork start beating your eggs and gradually adding flour into the well with the eggs.
Once it is fairly combined then you use your hands to mix and kneed the dough. 
 On a lightly floured surface you need to roll, turn, roll, turn, roll. 
This step take quite a while to thin out the dough.  If you don't have a noodle maker then you keep doing the roll and turn step until you get the dough to your desired thickness.  
I'm not a huge fan of pictures of myself.  Megan has found her "selfie" love so I suck it up and smile with my girl.  I figure at least people will know I really did exist. Ha!

One Christmas I was gifted a noodle attachment for my Kitchen Aid.  I ran strips of the dough through twice to thin it and then ran it through the noodle cutting portion.  

Again this is not necessary.  Until I had this attachment I would roll and roll, then use a pizza cutter to cut the noodles.  
Place your cut noodles on a floured towel, cover and let dry until you are ready to use.  If you don't need them all you can also freeze them after you had let them dry a few hours.  
This batch of noodles was used to complete our chicken and noodles dinner.  Yum! 

May you find joy in the journey as you chase your life!


  1. That pot of chicken and noodles looks amazing! Good job to your daughter; I've never made noodles. I don't like making my pic either, but since you have a selfie girl now, you had better get used to it. lol

  2. I've never made noodles, I may have to try!! I DETEST having my picture taken. Something I need to work on....

  3. I use the dough hook on my Kitchen Aid to dough. I love my Kitchen Aid. No noodle attachment, but I have the FGSVA attachment, which, once I got it, I couldn't figure how I lived without it!
    You have a very pretty kitchen.
