Savory Pork Tenderloin
Pork is an affordable protein choice for the family. When selecting any type of meat, look for cuts that are naturally lean such as those ending in "-loin."

1 pound pork tenderloin
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tbsp honey
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1/8 tsp ground ginger

Slice pork tenderloin into half-inch think rounds. Mix remaining ingredients thoroughly to create a marinade. Pour marinade over meat, cover and allow to stand in refrigerator 30 minutes to 1 hour. Cook tenderloin in lightly oiled skillet over medium high heat until cooked thoroughly, approximately 4 minutes per side.

Herbed Tomato slices

4 large ripe tomatoes
1/2 cup dry Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 tablespoon margarine, melted

Slice tomatoes approximately half-inch think. Place slices into large baking dish coated with non-stick cooking spray. Combine breadcrumbs and remaining ingredients; mix well. Sprinkle evenly and generously over tomatoe slices. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes. Serve hot.

Salt in Antiquity

While salt is cheap today, it used to be worth its weight in gold. Historians believe that Roman soldiers were once paid with salt. In fact, the word 'salary' comes from the Latin word 'salarium,' or payment in salt. During the late Roman Empire, salt was carried across 400 miles of the Sahara desert by caravans of as many as 40,000 camels. It was that important to humanity!
