The best part of Thanksgiving is leftovers!
Nothing beats a hearty turkey soup following the big feast. This year I decided to make my grandma’s home made noodles to add the large simmering pot.
It was a mess! I had flour all over myself and the balls of elastic dough were sticking to the cutting board every time I tried to roll them out. When my friend called I could hardly hold the receiver without covering it in paste .
“Your grandma had a lot of practice,” she laughed. “You are just learning.”
She was right! My Grandma Miller had a huge noodle advantage because of her years of experience. I, on the other hand, was working with a serious noodle curve.
By the time I dished up dinner the noodles were fine, maybe not as good as my grandma’s, but for a rookie they were pretty good.
As I cleaned up my mess I thought of all the times I have said to myself…“I wish I could write like that, take pictures like that, cook like that …”
I realized that everyone has a noodle curve before they can achieve perfection.
Frustrated with your noodle curve? If at first you don’t succeed…keep rolling until you get it right.
