Homemade Noodles... and a New Blog!

Childhood Memories... that's what Homemade noodles bring back. 
Mom use to make noodles...I remember her making the dough...
rolling it  with a rolling pin and hand cutting them.
It was a lot of work to make noodles for a meal.

Then she got a noodle machine
and she would spend a day making noodles. 
Sheets would be laid out on the spare bed...floor...
for the noodles to dry. 
Then she would freeze the noodles
to use through the coming months.

My sister came and we made noodles
not as many as mom use to make...
but enough to have for a few meals....
Eggs and flour...
and sometimes a bit of water blended to the right texture..
Then the dough is rolled out...
about 3 times..
thinner each time
Then the pieces are 'hung' to dry... 
the dough can't be sticky when cut into noodles
The noodles are then cut and laid out to dry completely...

MMM ...nothing quite like home made noodles...

Talking about homemade... 
my crafty daughter and friend are making things 
and posting them in their  new blog...
Take a look

Have a great weekend!!

  4. My mother made noodles, but I have no photos of the process. After she rolled out the dough, it was draped over chairs by the heater. Later, piles of noodles were placed on the beds to dry. Nothing compares to the taste of homemade noodles!
