Hi all! I'm sharing our Sunday family favorite! We try to have a family meal that is comfort foods, and we can enjoy each other's company. Our Collies love their bite of Marc's homemade biscuits too.
It's a great way to spend family time and catch up a bit from the week.

Soup for the soul
Beef Noodle Soup
With fall coming and the days cooling back, we find ourselves looking toward a hard winter anticipated. This makes us crave comfort foods. Foods that warm from the inside out. Soup is a favorite for this. It's kept warm all day so when you're starting to get tired and cold you can warm up by having a cup on the run.
INGREDIENTS 1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour (I have used white or wheat. I use all purpose.)
Combine the egg, milk, and salt with a whisk. Then stir in the flour a little bit at a time.
Keep stirring until dough is stiff.
Cover dough and let rest for about 15 minutes. (this is important)
(after resting dough) Lightly flour the surface you’re going to be working on. Take the dough out of the bowl and roll it flat.
Roll to 1/8" thickness, and let rest 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, cut the noodles. I use a pizza cutter. (there is nothing fancy about soup for the soul haha)
Place on rack to dry for 2 hours.
Then you can place directly into soup when ready.
Note: You can let your noodles dry while beginning your soup base. This makes everything quick and easy.
Beef soup base
1 T coconut oil
1.5 lbs diced up chuck roast
2 cloves garlic minced
1 onion diced
8 C Water
2 T beef broth base
2 T brown gravy powder
1 bay leaf
4 celery stocks diced
6 Carrots diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat Coconut oil in pot, add roast, garlic, onion and brown for 2 minutes stirring.
Add Water, broth base, gravy, bay leaf, celery, carrots and simmer for 2 hours on low heat.
Add fresh noodles, and continue cooking on low.
We keep in crock pot on counter for a quick pick me up.
Make sure and let us know how you like it!
Suzi & Wind Whispers Family
(Photos will be added tomorrow)
Farm life is being self sufficient, and living our dream. It's learning something new every day. Also, it's family, and family isn't always blood. It's like minds uniting and making up a strong community of people willing to work together and "BE" a family. Thank you for sharing our joys, struggles, work, recipes, and way of life.
