Two New Babies!

Faith had her babies today! She had 2 little boys. One is black & white, the other is brown & white! The black & white one is in the house-not sucking-so will have to tube then feed him. The other one is up & about & sucking on his own!

Eggs! Eggs! More Eggs! (not sure where the pics went)
What do you do when you are overcome with eggs from your lovely ladies? Why you can always make pasta! I made several kinds last week.

First you put 2 cups flour in a bowl. Make a well in the center. Add 1 1/2 tsp salt & 2 eggs. Mix with a heavy fork. As it comes together in a ball take it out & knead it until smooth & elastic. You don't want it to be too sticky so if you need to add a small amount of flour.

Next you roll the dough out to about 1/8 inch thick.

Next I lay my dough out on flour sack towels to dry briefly. Usually until I am done rolling out the other dough. The it is time to decide what shape pasta you are going to make! This is the fun part! I have several pictures of different shapes that I made last week. You can make almost anythign that you can buy with the exception of the tube pasta unless you have a pasta maker with those attachments.

Finished ravioli.

Cutting egg noodles.


Finished egg noodles.

I usually let them dry for a couple of hours. Then I either cook them or freeze them. They make the best home made chicken noodle soup!! Yummy!!

It has been fun finding things around the house to put up there.

It is really almost here! I saw my first robin this morning. She was singing to me from the walnut tree-announcing her arrival!  I know when she arrives that the warmer days of spring are not too far behind. Thank you Father for helping me survive another winter!  Thank you for sending the spring & new life!
