Duck egg noodles...

So this was a new adventure for me!  I have made noodles before but never with duck eggs.  One of the ladies at the market had them today so I got them, took em home, and made some noodles!  They are AWESOME!  So much richer than chicken eggs.  This is the recipe I used if you are interested.  I had a difficult time finding a duck egg recipe as they are quite a bit larger then chicken eggs.  I did find that I needed a lot of flower to roll them out.

A little wonky but yummy!  I think I better go make sure they still taste ok....

I have a problem...

Buying plants.  And seeds.  Seriously I need to cool it!  We only have so much room I really don't know what I am thinking sometimes.  My inlaws are nice enough to let us tear up their yard so I really don't want to push it...but...I really love heirloom plants and I found a local nursery that has an amazing variety of heirloom tomatoes.  Plus I limited myself to five which was really nice.  I would love to be able to grow them myself but we only had one heat mat this year so we just stuck with one heirloom type.  So here are some links to pictures of the tomatoes I bought yesterday.

Black Sea Man
Striped Cavern
Green Zebra
Big Zac Not an heirloom but we need it for the biggest tomato contest at market!
Black Cherry

And the one I am really excited about is the one we grew...but I will keep that one a surprise until we have our own pictures to show!
