Introduction

Why no category for Lamb? I had to fit this into the "Beef & Pork" because there is no appropriate category. Also, I had to guess at some of the ingredients entered, as there was no exact correllation in the SparkPeople database. However, I think I came pretty close. Enjoy - this is great stuff!
