Noodles!

I made noodles from scratch! They were a lot easier than I thought they would be, and they turned out really good. Justin and Mia both liked them too, so that was a plus. I put them in some leftover chicken & broth I had frozen from a few weeks ago, added some carrots, celery, and onions, and the soup was on!

My Grandma offered me the use of her pasta machine to make these, but I was feeling adventurous. Which means I forgot to get the machine from her in time, so I cut the noodles all by hand. I probably would have had a harder time with the right tools anyway, and this was easy enough to get done quickly.

This is why I'm not allowed to mow the lawn. I get sidetracked easily, and forget to pay attention to my lines.

They were a little on the thick side, so I'll try to roll them out a bit more next time. But even as thick noodles, they tasted great.

I had some leftovers, so I'll try to dry them overnight, and store them for next time.

Mia and I also made some Christmas Ornaments:

And she actually did help. There was a lot of counting and pattern recognition. I think that fulfills my home-preschool effort for the day, no?

Productive day, huh? Now I'll go sit on the couch while the mess festers in the kitchen. I'm not feeling that productive.

Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
