Q&A: Will Jon Snow Return Next Season?


I don’t know about THAT Jon Snow…

But the one I’m married to is appearing live with Pittsburgh’s “alternawave” alternative indie rock band Egomyth tonight at the Bloomfield Bridge Tavern – 9 pm

Egomyth will also be appearing at the Hop House in Greentree tomorrow night June 20, 2015 at 8:30 pm

Want a preview? Check out their Reverbnation page for tracks and videos. Jon is the drummer for “Wiles of the Devil” “Movement is Life” and “Sins of Another” 

Pssst….vampire fans…be sure to check out the video for “Wiles of the Devil” for some classic vampire footage!

Auntie Noodles

This is a recipe for easy home made egg noodles my aunt gave me. She’s not the whacky one…that’s my job.

2 cups AP flour

1/2 tsp salt

1 egg

3 stalks celery, sliced thin

1/2 large sweet onion, diced

2 Tbs olive oil

24 oz chicken broth

2 cups diced chicken meat (yet another good use for leftovers!)

pinch salt and pepper to taste at the end

In large bowl, mix flour and salt. In 1 cup measuring cup beat egg, then add water to make 3/4 cup total egg&water mixture. blend egg mixture into flour and knead until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

On a floured board, roll rested noodle dough to desired thickness (we like them pretty thick, around 3mm or so)  Cut into strips or squares as desired.

In large pot, sweat celery and onions with olive oil and pinch of salt until translucent and becoming tender. If using uncooked chicken, add it now (with a little additional oil if needed), and stir frequently until meat is done and lightly browned. If using leftover meat that is already cooked, add it with the broth and bring to a simmer.

Add noodles and continue to simmer for 3-5 minutes until noodles are firm.

Serve hot as soup, or refrigerate overnight and reheat the next day as chicken flavored thick noodles (noodles will absorb moister and make a thick sauce overnight)

Menu Ideas week of June 9

Apples are not the greatest this time of year. A bag I bought not so long ago now looks pretty dodgy. Apple salad is a great solution for the odd bits of good apples left in a situation like this.

Monday – pork chops and apple Sa…..salad (sorry Peter Brady)

Tuesday – Chicken fried rice

Wednesday – homemade noodles with portabella mushroom sauce

Thursday – chicken cutlets and parsley carrots

Friday – baked cod and garlic dill asparagus
