Nicholas' Asian Noodle Surprise!

Nicholas' Asian Noodle Surprise!

For my week on the Write to Cook, I made Asian noodles with chicken, peppers, celery, carrots, onions, and a touch of ginger. I really enjoyed making Asian noodles since I had never done it before and I wanted to try something that would really teach the club something. Although I had never actually made noodles like that before I wasn't sure how they were going to turn out, but they were actually pretty good and everyone liked them. At home I normally would just wait for my mother to cook dinner but this club has really encouraged me to help out more in the kitchen.
