A Nice Night

When I got home from work today I went outside with the dogs and fed all of the animals. I made sure everyone had fresh hay and feed (for the chickens) and collected my meager 4 eggs for the day. David came home when I was heading inside, and he went straight to the couch where he got under the covers and commenced to shiver. And shiver. Poor guy was dying had a 100* fever. He promptly fell asleep, and I had some quiet time with the dogs.

I thought about what to have for supper. Sometimes all I want for supper is a bowl of cereal, but sometimes I'm in the mood to really cook. Tonight was one of those nights. I mixed up some dough to make some bread, and got one of our homegrown chickens out of the freezer. Then I got out the pasta machine.



The results of my handiwork....a nice bowl of chicken noodle soup, with homemade stock, homemade noodles, and homegrown chicken. Plus, fresh baked bread hot out of the oven.



Sometimes it's nice when I get the house all to myself. Well, technically I wasn't alone, but David was sleeping so I might as well have been. I figured out how to get the internet up on the Wii, so I could surf the net and catch up on some blog reading while I was waiting for bread to rise.

It was a nice fall night, and hopefully there will be more like it (well, except for the sick husband) this winter.

Poor David :( I hope he feels better.
Wow! How did you make such an incredible meal after working all day? How did you thaw the chicken so fast? I'm so impressed. It looks delicious! :)

I'm not sure how or why I had the energy after working. LOL. The chicken was the only one I actually parted out, so it was pretty quick to thaw. I stuck it in the microwave on defrost while I did the bread dough. :-)

Wow,you are amazing. Bread and noodles in the same night. I want to make my own noodles. Do you have a tutorial on that or know where I can find one? Keep up the good work. I just found your blog and can't stop reading. Sandra
