I got up and made tonkatsu. It is kind of like Japanese schnitzel. One time a Japanese friend took me to a Japanese restaurant and encouraged me to try it. The main difference is that they use panko, and when I had it in the restaurant, it was served in broth. At our local Japanese restaurant, they serve it with rice and shredded cabbage. Make the rice potatoes, and pickle the cabbage and you'll have schnitzel.
Anyway, I made tonkatsu with rice and shredded cabbage. Malida busted out some shrimp and cooked them tonkatsu style, and we had a nice dinner. Our food preferences don't always align, but we have found some tasty middle ground.
NPR is streaming some great music this week. New albums by Sturgill Simpson and Sam Beam & Jessica Hoop, and a live acoustic concert by Wilco at the Mountain Stage. I listened to the two albums with some online friends earlier this evening, and am now listening to the Wilco with one of the cats. All good.
