Get on your gear and take a trip to China with me today.  There are many things to see in China.  First, pull out your map and take a look at China.  We're going to be covering a vast land.

Now grab your camera and let's snap a few shots.\

Every year excited visitors flock to The Great Wall of China, built over 2,000 years ago!  

Great photo you snapped!  Here is a beautiful Chinese garden.

Mmm!  Great shot. I love food (who doesn't?) and what could be better than enjoying some hot Chinese noodles?  

Make your own Chinese noodles!  It's easy!

Chinese noodles, often known as Egg noodles, are easy to make.  Seperate 3 eggs so that you have only the yolks remaining.  Then, beat 3 egg yolks with one whole egg until light and frothy.  Next, beat in 1 teaspoon of salt and 3 tablespoons of cold water.  Stir in 2 cups of flour and work the mixture with your hands until well blended.  Divide the dough into 2 parts.  On a lightly floured board, roll out each part as thinly as possible.  Let stand 1 hour or more.  Then, roll the dough up like a jelly-roll and cut into very thin strips.  Unroll the strips and lay them flat to dry for 24 to 48 hours.  Check if the egg noodles are dry.  When they are completely dry, you can store them.  When you are ready to cook the noodles, carefully boil 6-8 quarts of salted water on the stove.  Drop in the noodles, stirring once or twice to ensure they aren't sticking together.  Fresh, homemade noodles cook more quickly than boxed noodles, so check the noodles after a couple of minutes.  Drain the noodles when they arre cooked and serve them with sauce or with butter and parmesan cheese.  Enjoy!

Hint: don't be discouraged by the long wait for them to dry.  Go ahead and make them, but double the recipe so you have lots of noodles.  That way, you can save them in an air-tight container and have them for a few meals!\
