I know! This is a whole new genre for my blog. But I accidently made the best turkey noodle soup the other night and I thought I would share with the rest of you.
First of all, I am about to disclose my Grandma Susie's famous egg noodle recipe.
1 Tsp. Baking Soda
Enough flour to make a stiff dough.
Beat the egg and baking soda in a small bowl. Add enough flour to turn out on a floured board and roll till thin. Cut into squares with a knife and let stand.
Now the soup!
2 cans of chicken broth
2 cups of vegetable broth
Shredded turkey or chicken breast...as much as you want.
2 celery stalks sliced.
2 carrots sliced
1/2 onion, chopped.
White button mushrooms...as much as your want
Cilantro....as much as you want
A dash of red pepper flakes.
Heat to boil then reduce to a simmer. Continue to simmer until vegetables are tender. Then add egg noodles and continue to simmer until noodles are cooked through. They may look like a small dumpling in the pot. This is sooo good! Serve with cornbread or rolls. The mushrooms and cilantro give it a nice spring, almost thai flavor. Enjoy! Let me know how it turns out for you!

The NY Giants showed guts and determination that is often lost in today's NFL and my hat is off to them. What a fun game!
So what was up with the pregame show? Since when is a "red carpet" part of the Super Bowl? Frankly? I don't care what celebrities think. I don't care that they are there. I certainly don't want to see a red carpet. I want to see tail gaters. I wanted to see painted faces and what ever version of cheeseheads are attending the game. I wanted to know more about what Jason Taylor did for his community that won him the Walter Peyton award for community involvement. Dammit I want to know what little kid was totally influenced by something nice some humanitarian football player did for them. I certainly don't care who Nick Lachey thinks will win. I finally went to take a nap before the game started.
But kudos the the Giants! This one was really SUPER!!! When does Leatherheads come out?
