Pork 'n' Pineapple Stir-Fry

"I believe this recipe was taken from a very, very old copy of the Canadian version of Reader's Digest, and I think the lady who contributed it was a Canadian marathon runner. For a really spectacular presentation, cut a pineapple in half; use the pulp in this recipe and pile the stir-fry into the shell. An abolutely amazing recipe, I think, but judge for yourself. It is tasty and relatively simple and quick to prepare. (Note: I sometimes add about a cup of mushrooms, too - you can play with the veggie content. I also serve Soy sauce on the side.)"

I live in Canada's capital (Ottawa, Ontario) and love it, although years ago I lived on the West Coast (Vancouver, B.C.) and loved it, too. I am retired and really enjoy cooking, so reading recipes is almost a passion. Every time I bring out a new recipe I hear "Oh, not again!" from my hubby, but I notice he enjoys almost everything I try. We have a rating system for new recipes, and he always lets me know his opinion. Pet peeves include people who are afraid to try new foods and people who are habitually late. Favorite cook books are 5-Roses and the three new ones by our Canadian Podleski sisters - Crazy Plates, Looney Spoons and their latest, Eat, Shrink and be Merry. They are delightful and really informative. I am really glad that I found Recipezaar!! I spend a lot of time reading about other members, browsing their recipes and reading their comments about the recipes they have tried. A lot of good ideas have come my way, and I am sure there will be more. Thanks to all of you out there who have made my days much more pleasurable.
