As most of you know we are big fans of freezer meals. Yesterday was a cooking day. In the morning egg noodles were made and dried. In the afternoon chicken was cooked up. The noodles were cooked rinsed and joined the chicken...it was a fine meal and freezer meals will be made after it is chilled.
Far Guy's Paternal Grandmother made homemade noodles often...they were one of her specialty foods along with blueberry pie and the best fried potatoes ever! The first meal I had at her house was chicken and noodles served on depression glass plates...we ate on the porch that overlooked the front yard. When it came time for the blueberry pie I gave most of that to Far Guy as blueberries are not my favorite...I like them frozen or in pancakes. Grandma hung white towels and then noodles over the backs of the oak chairs in her kitchen...I can still see that kitchen...the cupboards with red trim and decals in the center of the cupboard doors the big kitchen sink and the old phone that hung on the wall. There was no rhyme or reason to her silverware drawer...everything was in the same drawer. Good memories!
A double batch of noodles drying on parchment paper covered cookie sheets. I made one batch and Far Guy made one batch...his are equal in length...mine are long and short and in between. ...mine were also stacking this way and that...but they all tasted good. We use the recipe in the Betty Crocker Cookbook.
We get along well in the kitchen. He could make this dish all by himself if he had to.
