I'm the walking wounded.
I made chicken soup today to chase the sick away. Hope it works!
Over the holidays I made noodles. What fun!
Instead of mixing the 4 eggs, a pinch of salt and the flour in a bowl I thought I would try the counter method.
I made a well in a mound of flour, put the eggs and salt in the well, mixed the eggs up with a fork and gradually worked in flour until I had a dough ball.
The idea is to just incorporate enough flour to make a workable dough, but...
Too much flour! That's what I think happened. Next time I will use a bowl because I didn't like scraping eggy flour off the counter.
But it was a lot of fun mixing up the dough on the counter!
And I will try to get the dough rolled out thinner, because the noodles increase in size when they are cooked... about 2 to 3 times.
But... they tasted great and these were yukko store bought eggs. I'm looking forward to using my chicken's eggs. Don't think that is going to happen for a while.
The noodles may not look pretty, but they sure tasted great.
