A Mess....of GF Noodles

As a kid in my grandma's kitchen, she often said 'I'm going to make a mess of noodles' or 'a mess of peas' or 'a mess of berries'. It wasn't a batch or a recipe, but a mess and that seemed incredibly funny to me, who had learned to associate a mess with a thing to be avoided from my parents. My grandma's messes were fun and yummy!

So, today after much procrastination, I made gluten free noodles. I came upon a recipe at Knights and Maidens and thought it looked like it easy and with good results. I wish I could say I followed the recipe exactly, but, I was distracted added too much potato starch, adjusted the corn starch to off set it and added two extra egg yolks left from making bread. The results were great! I plan on trying again, maybe even following the recipe as written. Either way, one more activity tried and learned. One mess down! Lots to go....

  1. Way to go! The only thing we make a "mess of" here is greens. I think it is a Southern term. Still sounds funny to my Northern ears. :)
