A catnap and a noodle making workout have me feeling less out of sorts.
Decided that it would be nice to have homemade 'pasta' (though I think that these might better be termed kluski.)

Better'n Whole Foods Hippie Homemade Noodles

4 c flour
3 eggs
1/3 c water
2 t salt
2-3 T toasted wheat germ, a pinch of oregano or some other spice, whatever.

Pile dry ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well into which you add the eggs and the water.
Work with hands until all flour is absorbed into dough.
Turn out onto floured board and knead for 10-15 minutes. This will be tough work, but about as good as Hanon for you pianists out there.
Divide dough into four parts, cover three of the parts with a towel to keep moist.
Roll out each until roughly 1/8" thick or translucent. Cut as you'd like.
Let dry for at least an hour.

Feeds four really hungry folks, or six less hungry people...or 24 Atkins folks. Something like that, yeah.
