And the same evening I suppose I was feeling very Susie Homemaker-ish and decided to make a yummy dinner which appears to be very involved but takes no time at all. After all the decorating I just wanted something yummy to eat and stare at how cozy it made our space.
Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
4 pk chops
2 eggs beaten and set aside
flour for dredging
panko bread crumbs
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
salt and pepper
Get a pan of oil hot enough for frying. Also, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
While it is heating, season the pork chops with salt and pepper.
Mix enough Panko, Italian bread crumbs and Parmesan to dip the pork chops and generously coat.
Dredge the pork chops one by one in the flour, then egg, then Panko, Bread crumbs and Parmesan.
Fry in oil until just golden brown-pork chops will still be pink.
Finish in the oven (not necessary to flip them once in oven) for about 10-12 minutes...or until not pink.
The key is not to overcook them and let them sit for about 5 minutes before eating.
Today was not even as relaxing as yesterday. Another truck window broke (I know!) and so I went down the hill to get the parts so my hubby could fix it...and thought I would squeeze in some shopping for the wedding I'm attending Saturday..and well, it was not such a great idea. Eli is teething and was impatient, squirmy and made sure that everyone knew it! Picture this-I'm in the dressing room and he is in his stroller but somehow manages to squirm out of his stroller..then is touching everything, (eew), and then poops his diaper. And it happens to be like the smelliest one ever...just permeating out this awful stench from the dressing room and he is SCREAMING (all the while I'm in there "almost done honey, okay, just one more minute...stay out of that!)...then I emerge, items in hand and EVERYONE is just staring at us like "could you get your stinky child in order, please?!" UGH. Not my best day.
