Good Morning/Afternoon Everyone,
Well the weatherman predicted freezing rain/drizzle and guess what.....HE WAS RIGHT!! I knew that it would be but still when you go out in the morning, and then try to get the paper even a couple of steps, you take your life into your hands.
Even the dog did a sash shay down the steps, I got after her to slow down, and down she went, then proceeded to get up and the back end slipping around to go do her business and then back in. That was at 7 am this morning.
I hate ice. I hated it when D and I drove truck. I tried to learn to drive on it, but even seasoned drivers like D, with 35+ years behind the wheel says, if its ice, forget about the load being on time. You cannot keep anything on the road with a fourth inch of ice on the road, period.
So, I am working in the house, just puttering around as FlowerLady says, and then decided to make egg noodles. I have my grandmother's pasta machine and I a going to master it today, without pinching my fingers in the roller.
I'm having roast chicken for dinner with leftovers planned for the rest of the week.
I love it when I can get in the kitchen and try to re-master things like noodles. I also like to get in the kitchen to forget about the worlds problems which are so very great at the present time. I also went to the grocery yesterday as I knew it would be icy today, and looked at prepackaged egg noodles in the freezer case and they are over $4.00 a package. Yikes! I don't think so. And the packages are so small to boot, so I am planning on trying to do more noodles and letting them dry a little and then freeze them in packages myself. Take that Grandma's Egg Noodle company.
Still having problems finding parts for the car. So I am driving the old dually, which I do love to drive. Its big and rough riding but I do enjoy it. The only thing about it is the fact its hard on fuel and you have to remember that you have to park someplace where you can get out, its large fenders stick out, and its a little hard to back out, and you definitely don't go to the bank drive up window!!!!
Well, I think that I will get back to my noodles, they are chilling in the frig, and then off to squeeze them in the pasta machine. I also am going to try to email a few emails to friends, it seems life just plain gets in the road and you can't just sit and write.
Well everyone, I wish you a blessed week and I am sure that all of you are getting ready for the Holidays and family.
Please enjoy everyday and I will try to blog later this week. I will see if I can get a few photos of pasta or my fingers!!
Love and Hugs to all
