So, off my boy went to kindergarten today. So happy and excited....
...me? Yep...I cried like a bitch.
I don't know why. He's been going to school for years. Hell, his daycare was 9-5, whereas kindergarten is 8-3:30...he's home an hour and a half earlier! I think maybe because this is all on his own. I'm not driving him to school, I'm no longer walking him into class each morning. He gets on the bus, and away he goes.
And he was so ready. That's what breaks my heart...*excuse me while cry some more...*ahem*. He was so proud and happy to get on that bus and drive away from me to a new school and a new teacher and new friends. I selfishly hoped that maybe he would hesitate, or want one more hug before he left, but no. Not at all.
I don't know what my problem is. You probably think I'm a twit, and I even feel like a twit, but he's my only one, so everything he does is a first and last.
Ok, I'm gonna go be weepy for a couple more hours until he comes home and tells me all about his exciting day and all the wonderful things he did.
In the meantime, here's some pork. With cheese on top. Yum.
'Pork Cordon Bleu'
Source: Adapted from Moms Who Think
1 lb pork tenderloin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 Tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 slices Swiss cheese
4 slices deli ham
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried sage
1. Cut the pork diagonally across the grain into eight 1/4 inch thick cutlets. Place the cutlets between sheets of wax paper and pound to a thickness of 1/8 inch. Season both sides of each cutlet with salt pepper.
2. Place the flour into a shallow dish and lightly dredge the cutlets in the flour, shaking off excess.
3. Heat the oil a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté the pork 3 minutes, then turn cutlets over and top each with a slice of ham and a slice of Swiss cheese (halved if necessary).
4. Add the wine and chicken broth; bring to a boil. Boil, until liquid is reduced by half...about 3 minutes.
5. Sprinkle with sage. Place the cutlets on a platter and spoon the sauce on top if desired.
