So, apparently I’ve expanded Saturday from just catch-up-on-sleep day to include ‘make all sorts of foods’ day. (But I would be blissfully happy eating popcorn every time I was conscious.)
Last week I made that strawberry pretzel salad and some Salad Olivier (subject of a future post). Today it was Clean Out The Fridge Soup, using up vegetables and chicken broth, and I gave making homemade noodles a second try.
No photos of the process, but I think I did it better this time, using the ‘make a well in a pile of flour and pour egg into the well and good luck not getting it all over the counter’ method. I kneaded it within an inch of its life, let it rest for while, then rolled it crazy thin. (I only used half of an egg, so it was just a little bit of dough. I was surprised that it made enough to cover the cutting board.)
The verdict? Thin rolling = better noodles.
Also, popcorn > noodles.
