noodle making

When the weather turns chilly there is nothing like a pot of soup on the stove to welcome your family when they come home.

Not everyone has help in the kitchen so you might not be able to manage whipping up a batch of noodles for your soup.

A noodle maker is a kitchen essential in our home.

With storms brewing . .
you need not worry about electricity being out...
when the muscles of a "nearly four year old". .
is more than enough to crank out noodles of any kind.

This little noodle maker rolled out the noodles faster than I could get them  to lay in single file.

A "little" flour ..helps to keep the noodles from sticking together.

Sure. ..
noodle makers don't always make the job quicker. . 
but..
it's not always about being quick.

all for now ..

  2. Noodle making has always seemed like such a daunting task that I settle for 'second best' noodles. But you make it look like child's play! Maybe I should see what happened to my MIL's noodle maker.
