    Adelynn's Note:

    This is from Periplus : Chinese And Asian Step-by-Step. This is a kid pleaser. I have made this several times and it is now a firm family favourite. I have varied the vegetables in the chow mein depending on what I could get. I love adding dried shiitake mushrooms which I pre-soak in hot water before shredding. Sometimes, I don't deep-fry the noodles (for the sake of my weight conscious DH) - both ways the sauce works out fine.
