    Help my son's 3rd grade social studies class, is researching countries and their cultures. They are planning on having a International Cultural Feast on Mon. Dec. 20th, and my son's culture he is studying happens to be Chinese :eek2: , so we are suppose to make a Chinese dish to bring in for the feast and I have no clue what so ever. It should probably be something that would be palatable to a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds. oh and also very easy to make I hate cooking! any recipes out there, please post them. They can be main dishes, side dishes, or even dessert, and yes I have already considered going to the store and buying fortune cookies!

    Try a fried rice dish.. They're very mild, and they don't leave much for kids to complain about. :D

    Ok in case you haven't already figured out I don't eat Chinese food or I probably would have thought of fried rice, but I gotta ask what is pot stickers. I don't think I have ever heard of them.

    khafley....
    You don't like to cook..and don't have recipe. I think the simplest solution is
    to just go to the local Chinese Restaurant and buy some fried rice, empty into your
    own container and take it in. :)

    All my recipes are Hunan and very spicy. Not very good for kids. You can always buy those bags of frozen Chinese dinners that are already prepared and all you have to do is heat it up.

    Well, this looked simple

    Title: Butterfly Cookies
    Categories: Chinese, Cookies, Ceideburg 2
    Yield: 1 servings

    1 Package won ton wrappers
    1 c Powdered sugar
    Oil for deep frying

    Fixed these guys last night. Good stuff! Quite simple to do. I also
    tried using granulated sugar and cinnamon as well as the powdered
    sugar. All were equally good.

    Yield: About 80

    PREPARATION: Cut each won ton wrapper into 2 rectangles. Lay one
    rectangle on top of the other to form a double thickness. Make three
    1/2-inch slits in the center, lengthwise. To form a bow, pull one
    end through the middle slit.

    COOKING: Deep fry butterflies until golden, about 1 minute or less.
    Drain on paper towel. Sift powdered sugar over both sides. Cool.

    DO-AHEAD NOTES: These keep several weeks in air-tight containers. [Fat
    chance! They didn't even make it through the next day! S.C.]

    COMMENTS: These can also be made from egg roll wrappers but they're
    three times as large. I prefer using won ton wrappers because I
    think their mini size makes them more attractive.
