Handmade Noodles Aren't So Bad

I made rice noodles last night for the first time, to go with some bok choi and chicken. They were easy and delicious. Oldest son even ate them. He seems more likely to want to try something don't set a plate out for him. I cooked the noodles in sheets, like crepes, then sliced them into ribbons and stir-fried them.

Beyond the Great Wall has several recipes for noodles. I'd always thought of noodles as something you had to roll and roll and roll and I don't much like to roll things really thin (although I'm better at it than I used to be). But these require almost no rolling. Some are stretched and some are bits of dough flattened with your fingers. Oldest son eats them too.
