Grocery Cart Challenge - Recipe Swap

Gayle over at The Grocery Cart Challenge (hee hee, that’s me) is hosting a recipe swap on cheap dinners when you’re out of supplies and need one more dinner before grocery shopping day and this is my contribution….

Buttered Egg Noodles (this sounds too easy and boring to be good but OH MY GOODNESS this is yummy.

2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 ½ cups water
½ cup real butter
8 ounces egg noodles
Dried parsley or herbs of your choice
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring bouillon, water and ¼ cup butter to a boil. Add noodles and cook as long as package directs. Add remaining butter and parsley, herbs and salt and pepper.

Serve up with whatever veggies you have left whether it’s canned green beans, garden veggies or the last of the veggies in your crisper.

Sometimes if I have leftover meat from another meal I’ll throw that in the noodles but the noodles alone are awesome!

No go on over and check out the other yummy entries.

I got tons of visits from your Grocery Cart Challenge recipe swap. You must have quite the stable of readers. No wonder you are always telling them to speak up in the comments. Shy little boogers, eh?

This sounds like a great Sunday evening meal when we don't have any leftovers and are sick of Ramen.

I also like to cook egg noodles, sprinkle with a little bit of olive oil, and toss in some of the mexican blend shredded cheese and some parmesan, and add salt to taste.

I had the ingredients and made the noodles. I have to tell you I was suprised they tasted so good! I added some garlic powder to mine. Oh boy was that good! I will probably leave out some of the butter at the end next time. If you eat them while they are hot it's not bad but when they start to get cold it seems like there's a whole lot of butter in the pan.

Very good though. I will make these again. The kids really liked them so I'm sure they'll be asking for them again.
