the noodle lady

On our trip to Denver we got to meet the noodle lady herself.  I know, I can't believe we actually got to meet her!  Actually the "noodle lady" is Moni, my aunt's sister, and she owns Grandma's Noodles.  She is a super-fun lady and let us go on a tour of her noodle factory.

The factory is very simple.  They mix the ingredients (flour, eggs, and water) up there.

The dough gets pressed and stretched.

Cora was wide-eyed in amazement.  She watched the noodles being made with Aunt Rachel.

The noodles go through here and are cut.

They go up the conveyer belt.  Each bucket has the perfect amount.

The noodles are packaged and ready to be boxed and frozen.  This lady feels all the packages and if they don't weigh enough she takes them out.  She can tell just by feeling the bags.

And here she is.  The noodle lady herself.  She was SO kind and sent us home with all these boxes of delicious Grandma's Noodles.

So, when we got home we of course had to try them out.  One of my favorite things to eat at my mother-in-law's house is chicken and noodles (she makes her own homemade noodles).  I called her up to get the recipe and was ready to cook.  I had never boiled a chicken before.  This was a first for me.

And here was our finished product: chicken and noodles over mashed potatoes (a little blurry). So delicious!

My chix and noodles recipe (from Kate Husted) calls for canned chicken. Good thing, too... I've never boiled a chicken before, either. :)
