Remember last fall when Caleb went with his Papa (my dad) to South Dakota for some MAJOR pheasant hunting?
Well, our freezer (and my dad's) are full of pheasant. We have been loving it.
So many yummy ways to prepare and eat it!!
It was one of those days. A day when we had lots going on. The children were busy helping Brian, taking lessons, here and there. Not a lot of order just lots to get done.
All to say, they were all going to be arriving home right at dinner time and they were going to be hungry.
Each month we rotate "service for the family" (aka: chores). One of the services is to be my kitchen assistant. My assistant was gone.
I was on my own for dinner prep.
I thought I would make something quick and easy.
Pheasant Noodle Soup - with Homemade noodles.
I use to make homemade noodles.
Haven't done that for a very long time.
Now, I remember why -
I could not get the egg and flour to roll out!! At all!
I was dripping with sweat and tears.
There was nothing easy (or quick) about it.
It was harder than doing a P90X workout.
This is what I ended up with. Each strip is like 20 inches thick. (argh)
But, I wasn't going to let a little flour and egg get the best of me.
So, I let it dry.
Served it and...
... to my surprise, it was a HUGE hit!!
Everyone ranted and raved about it all through dinner.
They loved the 20 inch thick noodles. :-)
It was worth all the tears.
Note to self: Next time do it with my assistant and let them roll it out.
