Pork is an excellent source of high quality protein, containing all the essential amino acids for building, maintaining and repairing body tissues. Pork is also considered a major dietary source of iron and the B vitamins, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin.

To make Sweet and Spicy Pork and Apple Stir-Fry, omit the lettuce and French rolls. Cut pork into cubes, cook in 1 teaspoon sesame oil and add 1 clove minced garlic to the pan with vegetables. Serve hot pork mixture on a bed of white rice and garnish with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seed.

To add color to this tasty sandwich dinner menu, serve with red and green grapes and milk.

I'd be in 200 groups if I did that. I prefer to keep it at 30. I'm above that now so I don't know what I'm gonna do.

Once I hit 50, I sit down and delete 20-30 and then go to FB and delete "friends" till there is under 100. I prefer 50 on there cause you have to admit you aren't CLOSE friends with more than 50 people...HAHA!
