Goshen Trail Soup

Soup.  I like to serve with a salad.

6 large or 8 medium potatoes peeled and diced.  Put in 4 qt. saucepan with enough water to cover and about 3 or 4
tblsp Oleo and salt to taste.  Cook until tender then slightly mash with potato masher. Leave some pieces whole.

Add 1 qt. of tomato juice.  (I prefer home canned.)

In a bowl beat 2 eggs, add ½ tsp. salt, 1 tblsp cooking oil and 1/3 cup half and half.

Add plain flour and mix until dough can be turned onto floured wax paper.  Continue to work in flour until it can be rolled
very thin and cut into small strips with pizza cutter.  Let stand and dry slightly if time permits.  

Drop into boiling juice and potatoes a few at a time.  Boil for 5 minutes then turn off heat; cover and let stand for a few
