It must be a Mum cooking night. I am on my own as DH has gone fishing for the long weekend, so Mum made me a homemade meat pie which I am having with garlic roasted potatoes with chilli sour cream and peas and corn. Real winter food.

Vera, I want what you are having!

Knight, apparently Coles stocks Panko in the Asian section in a yellow plastic bag.

Ah ok, didn't find them at woolies and the local coles down the road didnt have them but it is only a small coles so that isnt a surprise.

I ended up crumbing them in 3/4 regular bread crumbs and 1/4 corn flakes with dijon mustard in the egg batter mix.

Not sure how it will go but time will tell, the oven is pre heating now.

I will say though, it is not much fun pulling the skin of chicken legs is it? My fingers are still sore. I couldn't get skinless from the shopping centre I was at.

Edit: Got a good review from the wife, for me I wasnt as keen for some reason. It was ok dont get me wrong, but not quite there. Might leave skin on next time and try it with Panko crumbs.

I got quite a chuckle out of this one because in Canada "Coles" is a book store and I was wondering for a minute why they would have Japanese bread crumbs.

You might find them in public markets or if you have an Asian store near you. Also most gourmet food stores would have them as well.

I ended up with some pork loin chops with garlic and fresh rosemary paired with baked butternut squash.

LP, Coles and Woolworths are our two main supermarket chains in Australia.

I can understand why you got a chuckle, it would be hilarious asking for breadcrumbs in a bookstore.

Well, I had grand plans to cook either lasagne or seared and oven roasted ribeyes.

But, on the way back from coles, my car threw the drive belt which runs all the essentials for the motor, things like water pump, air con, power steering etc. So I spent most of my day fixing this.

Then, my little pulsar N13 that I drive to the station has been having an auto electrical issue and I spent the rest of the day fixing that. So I was pretty buggered by the end of it, we got take away.
