October Photo Challenge - 4 o'clock

This morning Calvin and I spoke to a group of youth.  Our topic was "Strengthening Faith in God, Strengthening Family, and Strengthening Love for Country."  Calvin creeped back home and crawled on the couch (he's picked up the aches and shakes I had earlier in the week), while I went to Super Saturday at the church.  There were lots of great projects.  I made a cute chalkboard from a cupboard door, a dark brown plate with a cream vinyl "a thankful heart is a happy heart" saying, and these fun bows and tags from scrapbook paper.  (I'll post the chalkboard and plate when I have better light for pictures.)

At 4 o'clock I was rearranging the walls to accommodate the new chalkboard and plate and consequently displaced items.  A little later Calvin woke up and asked if I would make chicken noodle soup.  You know he's sick if he requests that.  He doesn't really consider soup food on a healthy day.

1 egg, 1 Tbsp oil, a generous dash of salt, 1 cup flour.
Mix well.
Roll dough out on floured surface, then cut into strips.
Drop noodles into boiling broth and cook for 20 minutes.
That's it.  They're that easy.

And that is 4 o'clock . . . and on . . . at our house.

Do the noodles need 1 table spoon of salt also? My whole family is getting over the stomach flu but me so I think this is what everyone needs for dinner tonight.

Melinda, Ooops! No! Just a dash or two!

I add poultry seasoning to the soup base to help give it flavor and usually add a few drops of yellow food coloring to enrich the color as well. What do you do to make your soup good?

Melinda said...

I add poultry seasoning also with 2 bay leaves with a little garlic and salt and pepper. Everyone likes it pretty simple.

I'm making the noodles now. I'm excited, I've never made homemade noodles but have always wanted to try. Thanks for the recipe!
