Domesticated?!

Ok, those of you that know me well, this is going to come as a complete SHOCK to you. Infact, you may want to make sure you are sitting down when you read it.

Ok, this is the story of the "Chicken noodle soup... from scratch". I was chattin with Goldfish a few days ago, she mentioned she had made homemade pasta & it was drying. I was giving her a hard time (she's pretty darn handy in the kitchen unlike her older sister) & told her I had never done that, nor had any desire, too much work. Ok, she pretty much "challenged" me to try. Ok, fast forward to the next day & where did I find myself? In the kitchen making noodles from scratch!!! I was IMing my friends who were literally laughing their butts off as I was trying to figure out how to "beat an egg", "sift flour" & "roll loosely". It was HILARIOUS! Amanda tried to convince me to do a live blog while I was doing it, but that would have been too much work, so this is what you get, the aftermath of it all.


I knew no one would believe me when I told them I actually did it, so I took pics as proof. Oh, you want to know what I made the noodles for... Chicken noodle soup of course. Hmmm, never done that before either, so, trusty Goldfish gave me the recipe for that too. Now the funniest part of it all... NO ONE IN MY FAMILY EVEN LIKES SOUP!!! Ok, here are some pics of my "noodle adventure"...




Of course, the kids all turned their noses up at it, but then... I pulled the typical, you can't have ______ until you have some of this. You want to know something... they all ate it & the coolest thing EVER happened...

Bubby asked for more, & not only that he said "Mom, will you make this EVERY night, well, just switch between this & Mac & Cheese"! HOLY COW, I about fell over!

No, I won't be making it every night, & well, since I made the first batch (doubled even) of noodles & well, it just didn't look like it could possibly be enough, I doubled it AGAIN. Ummm, yeah, we now have more frozen soup in the freezer than we'll ever be able to eat! Oh well, live & learn I guess.

Very cool! My Hannah told me that she wants a pasta machine that cuts up the dough in all different ways. Too funny. Looks great to me! Yum.

You know, they make chicken soup in a can. Takes a lot less time. HA!
