Homemade Noodles

6 eggs
3 cups flour
a little splash of milk
1 tsp. salt

Place 3 cups of flour into a bowl, or right onto your clean counter top. Add the salt. Slightly mix. Add 6 eggs, into a well in the middle of the flour. Using a scraper, or your hands, mix the flour from the bottom of the pile into the top, where the eggs are. Little bit by little bit, until you finally have a dough that is rubbery/elastic feeling. If needed, add a little splash of milk to help moisten the dough. Roll onto a freshly floured surface, until about 1/4 inch thick. Using a pizza cutter or very sharp knife, cut the noodles into strips. Drop 3 - 5 noodles at a time into boiling salt water and cook approx. 6 minutes until they're done. (Or if you're using this in homemade chicken or turkey noodle soup, like we do often, then go ahead and drop them, 3 - 5 noodles at a time into the low-boiling chicken stock, and simmer for about 6 minutes or until done.
