      Yes, Own, MLM DOES work. I think Fuller Brush was one of the first companies in the 1960s. Look where Amway is and has been for years, plus the products are excellent.

      MLM works and is the vehicle rspoelsibne for helping many people on the road to find financial independence, typically within 2-5 years.There is, however, much confusion and misunderstanding concerning this business model. A pyramid scheme has no real product so commissions are based on bringing new people into the scheme who in turn also bring new people into the scheme. It's usually the people at the top that get the most while those at the bottom get very little. Eventually all pyramid schemes collapse because there is no real product being sold.MLM, on the other hand, usually has a very real product that is sold either by retail or through members personal purchases (usually both). Members are encouraged to build a network of distributors to market the product.In MLM you can earn more than those at the top if you apply some effort.In a pyramid scheme you can never earn more than those above you, so when investigating an MLM company see if you can find out if there are people earning more than their sponsors, (this is the crucial test to weed out pyramid schemes)

      Hey, Peg! You sure came to the right place. I often have this fried rice with the egg foo young.

      This stir fried rice looks easy and delicious, two of my favorites for cooking! I like the idea of the snap peas in the mixture to give it some crunch. Now I'm hungry for Chinese food. I also love egg foo young!

      rjsadowski, I wasn't able to get any fresh bean sprouts, or I would gladly have used them. Unfortunately, I am on foot, so I don't always get to the proper grocery. I do strips when I make nasi goreng, and I will try those with the fried rice as you suggested. Thanks for stopping by!

      An interesting recipe. I find that fresh bean sprouts add a lot to fried rice. Also, if you eat eggs, some strips of a scrambled egg patty would be nice.

      I like jasmine tea with this, but I suspect that any Chinese tea will work well. Thanks for the welcome, Derdriu

      AvianNovice, What a clear, delicious, eminently usable recipe for Chinese vegetable fried rice! In particular, I like the option of mixing the diverse meats up even though I tend to prefer one meat per dish. Also, I appreciate the serving suggestions. What do you recommend in the way of drinks?

      Thank you for sharing, and Welcome to HubPages,

      CC, yes, this is a very good recipe. It is simple, yet packed with all the flavor that it should have. And don't fret. I will have the egg foo yung recipe on here soon enough. They are like tiny omelets, with a brown gravy. You will definitely like them.

      Yes, Gamby, one in the same. Well, thank you! One way to have an evening WITH me, while I am not there, I guess.

      Yum!! This looks really good. Egg rolls sound great, too. I'm not sure what egg foo yung is, but I'll try anything once, twice if I like it. :)

      Isn't this one of the dishes I've tried of yours??? Well...they've all been delicious but I believe this one is one of my favorites...along with the nasi goreng (sp?). Love that you are also putting your recipes on your hub...That way I can try one, then sit down and read one of your awesome articles while enjoying a nice meal! :)
