He's partly right, of course, but I usually am when obsessed with something new. At the moment it's Granny Miller and this link connects you to one of today's projects: pressure cooking my 3 roosters. They have been waiting patiently in the freezer for my day of inspiration, and today it came.
She also wrote about making your own egg noodles, this is a fairly simple thing that I've just never done. So today we made those too. For some reason I had it in my head that you need a pasta thingamajig and I HATE extra kitchen gadgets that take up precious room. So I've never even considered buying one, and I've never made noodles 'till today. You don't even need a fancy noodle rack...
My chicken is about done, and the only trouble tonight figuring out what to have for dinner is the opposite problem I normally face...I have too much food in both fridges, I'd thawed out moose for spaghetti but then made 3 chickens. Oh and I have a pot of rice from Saturday. I know I'll be making some chicken soup... but now I need to figure out how to combine the rest of the foods for this week.
