Suzy-Q, in honor of this momentous occasion, here is a recipe I haven't even entered into my
MasterCook program yet, one I created last night.:) It really was wonderful, if I do say so

Splashy Stirfry

1/4 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup V-8 Splash! juice, TROPICAL blend
2 teaspoons minced garlic (from a jar; use less if fresh, or to taste)

1 pound boneless country-style ribs, trimmed
3 carrots, washed, peeled, and diagonally-sliced thinly (not TOO!)
2 bunches broccoli, cut diagonally

1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup rice per person
4 slices pineapple, cut in half, JUICE RESERVED!
mandarin oranges, JUICE RESERVED!
Peeled and sliced kiwi

In a gallon plastic ziploc-type bag, place marinade ingredients. Slice pork; put into marinade.
Shake bag to coat meat. Place in refrigerator for 2 - 3 hours, turning and shaking bag
occasionally to move meat around. Put a colander over a bowl, and strain the pork, RESERVING 

Cook pork over medium heat until done, but not TOO long! Place pork into a bowl; set aside.
Place broccoli in same pan; heat until fork-crisp, but do NOT overcook! You may need to add
some water. Add carrots; cook until fork-crisp. Add pork. Stir together marinade, juices,
1/2 cup water, and cornstarch. Add to pan; stir while doing so, or it will be gummy! Turn to
LOW; allow to heat until thickened.

Meanwhile, place 1 cup rice on each plate, and flatten out to cover most of the plate. Around
the edges, arrange a half pineapple slice, a kiwi slice, and a mandarin orange in an artistic
group, and continue until edge of plate is "decorated" all the way around. Place stirfry on 
top of rice.

This makes enough for four people. Serve with eggrolls, if desired.

DH LOVED the presentation, and loved the dinner.:) It really is pretty; the colors of the fruit
echo the colors in the stirfry! The way I did my grouping was by putting the kiwi slice over the
end of the pineapple, then putting the orange right over top. Hard to explain!:D
If you try this, anyone, LMK what you think!!!!!
