Homemade Egg Noodles + 2 Weeks Worth of FOOD

Been 2 weeks since I have posted what we have been eating.  Time to catch up!  :)

Most excitedly, I made some homemade egg noodles.  Mom had mentioned that she missed grandma's chicken and noodles, so I went ahead and found a recipe to make myself some.  Figured I needed to try it myself before going home and making them for the family.

The recipe I found was from The Pioneer Woman and all you need to remember when making these beauties is 2 eggs to every cup of flour.

They sure did plump up and only took ~5 minutes to cook.

Boiled a chicken first, removed the meat from the bones and boiled the noodles in the broth.  Ate with a side of corn and Challah Bread.  As a side note, I doubled the challah bread recipe when making it this time because we enjoyed it so much last time.  My stand mixer did not like the dense bread and overheated while kneading it.  Upon reading online about kitchen aid mixers, it says not to run the mixer for more than a few minutes at a time...and the recipe called for 9 minutes of kneading...whoops...  Hoping there is no permanent damage...

Sloppy "Chickpea Joes"

More or less a sloppy joe made with chickpeas instead of ground meat.  These guys were very good, especially with the avocado.

Cobb Salad

I had a meeting in Detroit and Joshua stepped up to create a beautiful Cobb Salad.  It was very good.  :)

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

I didn't turn the cauliflower bites into a pizza, because they were good on there own.  We made and ate it kind of randomly, so sadly, there are no photos.

Creamy Curried Chickpea Soup from Daily Garnish

Again, no photos.  Josh finished making this while I went to band practice.  As Emily says in her recipe, the lefovers are amazing and I had them twice last week.

Peanut Butter Udon Bowl

I made this with peanut butter instead of sun butter and oh my...this stuff was good...  had like 1/2 cup of soy sauce in it...sooo that could be why it was so amazing..  I quadrupled this recipe as it is just for 1 person and Josh eats for 2.


This last Tuesday was Fat Tuesday, so everyone in the Detroit area eats at least 1 Paczki (or 5) that day.  Josh went with one of his co-workers to get some Packis for a meeting and picked up some Pierogies at the store.  We are used to having frozen ones, so these were quite the treat.  Cook them up with onions and butter and serve with tomato sauce and paremesan...can't get much better than that!

Cheese and Chocolate Fondue for Valentines Day

I used real cheese instead of the fake stuff for this cheese fondue and it was way too thick.  Tried to thin it down with some milk, but that didn't work all that well.  Still tasted good though  :)   The chocolate cheesecake fondue was very lovely.  We ate it with strawberries and bananas and then a day later I accidentally ate ~1 cup of it..whoops...  hah   The cheese fondue we ate with some focaccia bread and veggies.

Greek Veggie Burgers

yum yum yum yum yum.  Ate this after Bikram Yoga and before the leftover chocolate fondue incident.

And now we are on to breakfast.  The best part of the day on the weekends  :)

Cardamom-Orange French Toast

Served with the oranges I got the zest from and some whipped up heavy cream left in the fridge.  Make sure to double the orange zest and cardamom.   YUM!

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

Ever since I made those Pumpkin Scones from Iowa Girl Eats, I have been wanting to make more scones.  Finally got my chance.  As with most all baked goods that come from my kitchen, these were amazing.  I love breakfast on the weekends.
