      1/2   c            Water
    2       tb           Light soy sauce
    2       tb           Dark soy sauce
    3       tb           Sesame oil
    1 1/2   tb           Sesame seeds
    1       tb           Finely chopped garlic
    1       tb           Sugar
    1       t            Freshly ground black pepper
   Soak the dried mushrooms in warm water for 20 minutes
   until soft.  Squeeze the excess liquid from the
   mushrooms and remove and discard the stalks. Cut the
   caps into shreds.  Soak the cloud ears in warm water
   for about 20 minutes or until soft.  Rince them well
   in cold water and drain them thoroughly in a colander.
   Soak the noodles in a large bowl of very hot water for
   15 minutes.  When soft, drain well.  Cut the noodles
   into 3-inch lengths, using scissors or a knife.
   Peel and finely shred the carrot.  Finely shred the
   pepper and onion.
   Heat a wok or large frying pan and add the oil.  When
   moderately hot, add the mushrooms, cloud ears, carrot,
   onion, green pepper, and water and stir-fry for 5
   minutes or until the carrots are cooked.
   Combine the sauce ingredients and add them to the
   vegetables. Give the mixture a good stir, then add the
   noodles.  Stir-fry the mixture for 2 minutes until
   well heated through. Serve at once or at room
