salt and pepper to taste

1 t. almond extract

3 T. vegetable oil

3 T. sugar

Cook noodles in boiling water according to package directions.

Drain and set aside.

Beat eggs with salt and pepper.

Add almond extract.

In a skillet, warm the oil.

Add sugar, and stir until it browns but does not stick together.

Toss the noodles and egg mixture with sugared oil, stirring well.

Wipe out the pan with paper towel, and spray with cooking oil.

Over medium heat, add the noodle mixture.

When the noodles are brown on the bottom, take the pan off the stove, put a plate on top, and flip the pan.
