Ginger Noodles

Making my own noodles is a huge saving. And wanting to try something different, I added fresh ginger to the dough. These ginger noodles are packed full of flavour. And they offer up the antibacterial and antiviral health benefits that ginger adds to our diets.

When I purchased my first property the interest rates were fairly high. My first year of repayments and levies were slightly more than I had been paying in rent. But, the second year I did not have to brace myself for a 10% rental increase. And even though the interest rate fluctuated I found myself better off. By year three all my expenses related to being a homeowner were less than what my rent would have been. The bank gave me an option of always paying the highest amount I had ever been charged. This was based on the highest interest rate levied. And I took this up as by the time the interest rate dropped I was used to paying that amount of money into my bond. This worked out quite well for me when it came time to sell as I owed very little to the bank.

That money was invested until we bought a parcel of land on which we have built our house. I took a bond out to cover the cost of the land and to pay for the building costs of the cottage. At the time, the monthly repayments were extremely high. Our interest rates were crazy and I was paying more for the land than I was paying to rent a three bedroom house. Once again I went for the option of always paying the highest amount I had ever been charged. And this has come in handy 18 years down the line. The interest rates have dropped significantly in the country. And the extra money I have paid into the account has been used as savings. I will be able to pay my bond during lockdown. And I can access the savings portion to pay my bills.

  1. This is a really great idea, Tandy! I have a kilo of ginger to use, and have been looking for some more creative ways – will definitely be trying this one!

      1. I think mortgages must be written differently here as I can’t make sense of what you are saying.

        Ginger in the pasta sounds delicious! We made pasta for a few years and then went on to other fun.

        be well… mae at

  2. I can’t see us making our own pasta, but I do agree that ginger is a great additive to some meals. We now and then include it in some dishes. It’s great for the occassional stomach ache too. Thank you. Take care. x

  3. Hi Tandy, I can’t see us making our own pasta, but we do add grated ginger to some dishes now and then. It’s great for stomach ache too. Thank you. Take care. x

  4. Glad to see that your smart budgeting has paid of. And by the way, my apologies for all the comments on your previous posts. For some reason your blog was not showing up in my WordPress reader feed, and then it was back today…

  5. I can’t think that I’ve seen ginger noodles before, Tandy. A great recipe. Your conservative approach has certainly benefited you now. I was trying to explain to my sister that you can’t expect to take no financial pain right now and this is the time in your life when you have to reallocate funds and use a bit of savings to survive.

    1. I hope your sister listens to you! I have never seen these noodles anywhere else and was quite pleased with the result 🙂

  6. I think this pasta would be great with any sauce! What a great mixture of ingredients and flavors. Ginger is great as you say, as an anti-inflammatory, great for the stomach and wonderful tasting.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
