I promised the recipe and here it is! My Great Grandmother’s Homemade Egg noodles. You talk about complete comfort food, this is the ultimate winter warmth for your soul! These wonderful little noodles are so easy to make, the hardest part is taking the time to cut them. I have used them in my Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe that I will post soon, but most recently for Thanksgiving. They are just cooked in Chicken Broth, preferably homemade. Our family has always served them over mashed potatoes for the Holiday.
Sixteen days and counting until our youngest son P.J. get’s home for Christmas. Morgan will arrive two days after that. I can’t wait, I’m beyond excited. I finally got all our decorations up this week and the house is all ready for some life again. I can’t wait to see the boy’s come and go even if it’s a few minutes a day. I look forward to the noise and the hustle and bustle of friends zipping in and out. The laughter and the whistling of our two precious men! We plan to have my Mother and my Grandmother over for Christmas Eve. On Christmas day Pete, Morgan, P.J. and I will go to the movies and watch basketball. I can’t wait to make all their favorite foods, homemade baked ziti with Sunday gravy, homemade mac and cheese, gingerbread cookies and sugar cookies. My wish this year for Christmas is that everyone would have a friend or loved one to be with on this joyous Holiday Season! Please make these delicious noodles part of your Holiday tradition! Let me know how they turn out. Thanks, Stacey
