Good morning all!
Sorry I haven't posted anything in the last couple days. I have been trying to get things done around the house, do some things at my dad's and then Adam ( our greyhound) got hurt Wednesday night.
First, my dad is supposed to have surgery today. Please keep us in your thoughts. I hadn't said anything till now because in October we got to the hospital and dad decided he wasn't ready. In November the Dr. cancelled that morning before dad left the house. I am hoping this time everything goes smoothly; surgery is scheduled for noon.
Adam is okay now, Storm took him to the vet yesterday morning(the vet is within 3 minutes of us). Night before last(Wednesday) he had been out running around the yard and slipped and fell. He nicked his leg and ear a little bit. The vet put him on an antibiotic and a pain med for a few days. He also let us know that he is a "pleasingly plump" greyhound. :)
A little over a year ago when I got Adam he was too thin and slighly dehydrated according to the vet. So now, I take the plump remark as good. :) The vet says he is very healthy and great structure for a greyhound. I just love my greyhound!!!
Someone had asked me a while ago for the recipe for how I make my homemade noodles. considering that holiday time is here again, I thought I would post my recipe as best as I can.
I kinda "eyeball" the ingredients. :)
This recipe will give you enough to fill a crockpot.
eggs- at least 6-8
1/4 cup water
chicken broth in a pan, boiling
Put eggs in bowl and beat with mixer. I know alot of people just beat with a fork. The mixer adds more air to the egg mix, which makes them fluffier or lighter tasting.
Add water and mix again
Add flour to make a smooth dough.
Sprinkle four onto rolling board or counter. Roll out about half your dough, till thin( about 1/8 in thick). Cut with a pizza cutter it is soo much easier than trying to cut with a knife. Noodles can be as thin or thick( in width) as you would like.
Drop cut noodles into boiling chicken broth.
Roll out remaining dough and repeat process. Let cook until noodles are tender.
I do not add salt till noodles are cooked. Salt has a tendency to make dough tougher than you want for noodles. Serve when done. :)
Be back soon,
