TBT- 2005 My Mom and Youngest Making Noodles for Nonny's Chicken and Noodle Soup

Part of life while we were all small was eating my Grandmother's chicken noodle soup.  She took the day to mix up and roll out a very large batch of her egg noodles.  She would dry them on everything in the kitchen from chair backs to cereal boxes.
One day, late November, my Mom decided to show our youngest her Mother's egg noodle recipe from start to finish.  They had a great time.  In 2005 Tameryn was only five and totally grooving on getting her hands in the dough creating an end result that she could eat.

The recipe is simple; dump cake flour on the table, add enough eggs to make a pliable dough that does not stick to the table or rolling pin and add eggs or flour as needed to achieve this.


Nonny is what my brother and I called my Mom's Mom :)  She served her soup in a way that I have never seen anyone else do with the broth, chicken and noodles all separate.  After the whole chicken was cooked in the stock pot all day it was taken out on to a platter whole, not deboned and then the noodles were left in the colander.  This way all of the prepared additions, when building your bowl, kept their flavors.  This was wonderful for when they would finally come together in the bowl your steaming hot serving of soup not only fed our bodies but, our souls.  





Sooo incredibly satisfying.  My additions to this bowl were fresh spinach, mashed potatoes and grated aged provolone with a drizzle of olive oil.  Yes, we enjoyed every single bite and had a sense of nostalgia for this special time in our lives.
