Too much snow...

Ahhh, internets. I am the only one at work at 8:30. Because it is completely white outside the window. And the highways aren't backed up, they're stopped. Snow is only fun when you're 10, I've decided. After that, it's nice to look at for a day or so, but then it just needs to go where the people who ski want it, and no where else.

But, anyway, here is the schnitzel recipe:

Pork Schnitzel:

6 thin boneless pork chops
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 egg beaten with 1/4 cup water
2/3 cup plain dry bread crumbs
1/2 package medium egg noodles
4 TBLS unsalted butter

1- place a pork chop between two sheets of waxed paper, or plastic film. Pound it to 1/8 inch thickness. repeat with all chops

2- Season the pork chops with the salt and pepper. Spread the flour on a dinner place and the egg mixture into a shallow bowl. The bread crumbs get their own dinner plate.

3- Coat the chops with the flour, dip in the egg, and then coat with the bread crumbs.

4- Melt 1/2 the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook each chop about 2 minutes on each side. Our skillet fit 3 chops each time (hence using half the butter for the first set ,and half for the second).

5- Make the noodles according to the package.

Dinner is served. Really tasty and easy to make.

Not much else to report. LG is doing well. Eating like a trucker and toddling everywhere he can. Last night he followed (no, not chased, followed) the black cat all around the house trying to catch his tail. The cat knew to move just a step ahead, or twitch his tail just in time. He completely had the kid going. It was great to watch. I think they're getting along better now that LG is walking. Which I wouldn't have expected, but there it is.

Must go motivate to work.
