noodles 101

Today we made Lahgman (McNabb style) - noodles topped with a spicy assortment of veggies & chicken. Most often Lahgman is made of mutton, peppers, other leafy veggies - with a tomato base flavor. We love it! This dish is considered to be a Uyghur dish, but the Chinese & other minority groups have similar flavored dishes too. There really isn't anything new under the sun. But I (Ali) love making the noodles from scratch. I get so excited to help knead the dough, roll out the sections, stretch them, weave them around your hands - and then stretch them again. Its a very tedious process, but very worth the work.

Asia enjoys the end result....but plain. At least she's getting some chopstick practice.
