Herbed Spätzle

Here is the recipe we use, I am new to this website and do not understand how to enter a recipe, can anybody tell me please.

2 Large Eggs
½ Cup water
1 ½ Cup Flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¾ teaspoon salt
Pinch of ground nutmeg
2 Tablespoons finely chopped parsley

Beat eggs and water in the mixer. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue to mix well. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Drop small bits of batter into boiling water, either from a spoon or with a spaetzle maker. The Spaetzle is done when they float to the surface. With a slotted spoon, lift them from the water and put them in a strainer to drain some more.
Serve as a side dish, sprinkle with melted butter. You can also top it with browned bread crumbs.
You may also put the spaetzle in a baking dish and top it with shredded cheese of your choice and place it under the broiler for about 1 minute.
If spaetzle is for later use: Get a container of Ice water and drop the spaetzle in it immediately after removing them from the boiling pot. Drain in a strainer and toss with a small amount of oil, and transfer to a zip lock bag and refrigerate. To reheat them later: put a small amount of butter in a frying pan and fry until heated.

Between the Clorox and the Kitty Litter

Try moving to rural NH and finding wine period
There is a State controlled wine store. Most little stores just stock the cheap stuff. What State has nice wines in the corner store ,maybe I should move there
