Still No Lambs, But We Do Have Noodles!

Still No Lambs!  So while we are STILL waiting the Commander has been spending time in the kitchen.  The Commander has been very happy with his bread making experiments so yesterday he decided to branch out and make his own noodles. He found a good recipe for Grandma's Butter Noodles at AllRecipes and with my mom's help he decided to give it a shot.

The recipe was surprisingly simple and in no time my mom had the roller pin out and was flattening the dough. The Commander thought the amount made per recipe seemed a bit small so he made a double batch.

The instructions call for the semi-dried dough to be rolled and then cut, after a few tries at this my mom decided to use a pizza cutter instead. The pizza cutter was way easier and dramatically sped up the cutting process.

The Commander cut up some turkey and carrots and added them to a broth to simmer. Mom cut some onions and celery, added butter, and sauteed them in a skillet before adding them to the broth. Once the broth was boiling the noodles were added.

The noodles seemed a bit brittle before they were added but once in the broth they cooked up in grand style. The turkey soup was delicious and it looks like the Commander will be making noodles again!

On a side note my sister-in-law is starting a new business called Sweet Earth Natural Foods and is selling food designed for vegetarians. She has both a Facebook Page and a Web Page, check them out and let me know what you think - marketing research you know.


  1. I've always wanted to make noodles, and you have made it seem so easy!

  2. Mary Ann - It was really easy, otherwise the Commander wouldn't say he would make them again!
