Sweet & Sour Pork

REMEMBER!! WATCH YOUR PORTIONS! I have found that many do best when they control their portions rather than deny themselves food!

3-4 boneless pork chops cut into bite size pieces
1 pkg Tempura batter mix
1 pkg frozen stir fry veggies
Enough oil to fry pork
Your favorite Sweet and Sour Sauce
1/4 tsp ginger
1 Tbsp olive oil

Mix up the Tempura batter as directed on package. Heat oil in a large sauce pan or fry daddy.
Salt the pork lightly and then dip into batter and shake it a little, carefully place in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Check one by cutting it down the middle to make sure it is done.
Continue frying pork about 4-5 pieces at a time and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. Cover with a lid to keep warm.
If you can multi-task, go ahead and heat up the olive oil in a skillet and stir-fry the veggies. If not, just work on the veggies once the meat is finished. Once the veggies are tender and hot, add about 1/2 c of Sweet and Sour Sauce and mix together.

Serve over rice or noodles.

4 -5 baking apples (I was able to fit 7 smaller apples in mine)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1⁄3 cup raisins (optional)
3⁄4 cup brown sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄4 cup butter, softened
Scoop out center of each apple and and leave cavity about 1/2 in from bottom. (I sliced the top half of mine off and used a small spoon to remove the core and seeds.
Peel top of apples down about 1 in and brush lemon juice on top. In bowl, combine raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Spoon mixture into apples. Pour 1/2 c water in sprayed crockpot and arrange apples inside.
Cover and cook on low 1-3 hrs or until tender.

Need a quick snack or a light lunch. These are light and tasty!

Cucumber Bites

1 cucumber, peeled and sliced
Turkey deli meat thinly sliced
1 slice of Pepper Jack Cheese
Mustard (optional)

You'll only need 1 slice of turkey and 1 slice of cheese to make 4 bites.
Assemble the mini sandwich and add a dot of mustard. That's it!

I like to keep sliced cucumbers in the fridge in a zip-loc bag to have on hand for a quick snack. You can use any meat/cheese combo you like. Roast beef and cheddar is also a favorite.
