My Mom made homemade noodles. She stewed whole chicken from the market, which she called a stewing hen, for soup and added the noodles. When she bought a whole chicken for frying, she called it a frying hen. It was a young adult at the store buying a chicken one time before I realized they were the same thing. Remember that everyone has things about them that make them unique and special and its a good thing.
For years, I didn't make homemade noodles until I bought an old cookbook at an antique store and found a recipe for it. Recipes and food brings back memories and happy feelings. So why not indulge in this pleasure however you can.
