Still playing make believe.

In my growing up world, the best days were when Grandmother made noodles. We knew we had a treat coming!

Sister #4 was the favorite noodle helper, and as such, Grandmother shared with her the recipe. #4, sweetheart sister that she is, shared it with our daddy. Sister #6 swiped the framed gift and copied it so I could share it here with you.

Don’t tell Pop. He thinks the gift was for him. LOL.

Here you are in Grandmother’s own hand. 

If you try it and like it (or if you have a better/easier recipe) let me know! I might even give it a shot some day. 8)

For as long as I can remember, I've loved two things--reading and people--and that led me to become a writer. Many of my stories are set in Small Town Worlds. I'm a wife, mother, sibling and an aunt. I have a deep faith in God, and an exciting life in Christ. Maybe I shouldn't be (after all, he's God!) but I'm constantly amazed at the things He's up to. :)

  1. I’m gonna need a copy of Grandmother’s noodle recipe. I remember eating them! Thanks for sharing. I love you, Aunt SuSu!

  2. I made them once when the boys were little. They were great, but a lot of work!
    Do you have Grandmother’s coconut cream pie recipe? I have the pineapple cream pie. Mom wrote it out for me

    • I made noodles once (not Grandmother’s recipe) and even used the noodle roller attachment on my mixer. It was waaaaay too much trouble when the frozen ones taste so good.
      Okay, now I’m really jealous. You have to scan that recipe of Mom’s and share it with me.
      I can tell you how they made coconut cream pie. Use vanilla pudding mix–whichever kind you like, and add a cup or so of coconut when it’s ready. Then dump it in a baked pie shell. Top with REAL whipped cream that you make yourself from heavy cream.

I'm so glad you dropped by my Small Town World! Hope you'll leave a comment. I really enjoy hearing from you!
