Egg Noodles

While we were feeling under the weather, we decided to make some home made chicken noodle soup. We made the broth (no, we don't raise our own chickens from scratch) and we made the noodles. If you've never done it, it's easy, fun and reasonably quick.

Take a cup or two of flour, add a little salt (1/4 - 1/2 tsp) and add enough eggs to get it to stick together (2-6). Knead it like crazy, roll it as thin as you can and cut it into crazy shapes. We use pizza wheels to make big crazy noodles which got even bigger when we cooked them. Yum! Yum!.

(broth: leftover chicken and bones, ends of carrots, onions- include the skins!, and celery, spices if you like them. Cover with cold water, then simmer for 2-6 hours)
