We seem to have a short list of meals that we make all the time, and I'm sure we aren't the only ones. If you have a good recipe then please email it to me. I'm looking for some new meal ideas, but I'm not very adventurous with food. My requirements are that it be easy and have few ingredients. In exchange, here's one of my regular dinners that will feed 4. You may want to add some cooked onions and green peppers, but I'm not a big fan of either.

Sweet & Sour Pork

1. Cook white or brown rice (If you have a rice cooker then use 2 cups dry rice and 4 cups water. If you don't have one then think about buying one. It makes perfect rice super easy.)

2. Fry cubed chicken or pork in a little oil over medium-high heat until cooked through. (we use one package of 3 chicken breasts OR 3 pork chops. I find the pork easier to cut into cubes but go with what's on special.)

3. When the meat is ready, lower the heat. Pour in two small (8-10oz) jars of sweet and sour sauce. (Kroger carries their own brand as well as LaChoy brand, and either work well.) Add one can of drained pineapple chunks. Heat over low heat until warmed through.

4. The chicken and sauce can simmer (covered) over low heat until the rice is ready. Serve and enjoy!
