Spaetzle Piggy

Way back in the year of the noodle (about 6 weeks ago) I did manage to make homemade noodles once. At one fine dinner we ate chicken paprikash, red cabbage and apples, parsnips and carrots, and buttery homemade spรคtzle. The little German noodles were surprisingly easy, crazy messy, and devoured quickly by Dianthus. They were such a hit that I was sure I'd make them again soon.
I haven't.

Perhaps someday.

Salsis--- It's a very simple batter/dough (flour, milk, butter, eggs) pushed through something (in this case a colander and a potato ricer) into boiling water, then tossed with butter.

Very easy in many respects, big messy pain in others.
