Sharon and I made noodles last night. I put all mine in a plastic bag and chucked them in the fridge when I got home last night. They all clumped up so I had to rework them all. I came in for lunch at about 2:30, and didn't get done until almost 5.
Today's lunch, I'll still call it that since I still plan to eat later, consisted of;
Linguine with tomato basil sauce
Hot apples w/maple sugar
1/2 cup grape juice
Let me just comment that,thus far, everything in this challenge is fantastic in comparison to the last one. I had probably 2 or 3 meals in the last challenge I would call good. The rest of the time eating was a chore.
To start, I overcooked the noodles. Not the end of the world, they were a bit mushy but still palatable. They were made from wheat flour, water, and egg. The sauce I had canned earlier this year, it is comprised of tomatoes, garlic, basil, and salt. We pressure canned it and it looked a little runny in the jar. I did have to cook it down some but it turned out fine.
Sharon and I baked the bread last night, the garlic from a forage in early summer. I peeled the garlic, put it into an egg pan, and then just laid the slices of bread on top.
I canned the apples in light syrup some time in the fall, I don't remember if I picked them myself or traded for them. The maple sugar came from our project last march at the Lohman's.
The grape juice was from grapes I got in trade from my mom. She gave me way more than I had expected and I ended up juicing some of them.
On a side note, I have made a new press cylinder for extracting oil and juice from rose hips. I blew the screen out with too much pressure twice already, but it does work! It is pretty cold out in the shop and I have had the rose hips in the freezer so the oil comes out like butter. Once I brought it into the house it melted away from the berry essence and into the bottom of the cup.
