    Are those also called swing top jars? -or do they have another name?

    I've only had it for a few hours and all I've managed to do so far is to attach the lens, but I'm already in love.

    ^yeah. I used a little egg white and milk for the "glue" for the panko, and liquids + Panko style crumbs = mush. Clearly, I did not think that one through. :lol:

    Next time, I'll just use a little flour.

    How did you cook them? When I use panko I either fry or bake. Even baking them they don't always come out crispy, but they're not all that mushy. Frying them gives that crisp texture but I hate to fry things if I don't have to. Then again, I almost never use an egg in the coating.

    Pan fried. The beef is extremely thin.

    I'm not much of a cook. Usually, I try to find it "pre-breaded" at the H.E.B. Then I can just slap it in a pan and cook it in just a few minutes.

    I also purchased a bag of chips yesterday, which I polished off at my desk today. :alienblush:

    Yesterday was the day dad and I started the first batch of the seasons pickling. We bought the salt sugar, vinegar spices and cucumbers yesterday and I've pickled my part today as my recipe is a 24-hour one -dad has a different recipe that takes two days.

    This picture is from last year as I forgot to take a picture today :(

    New dark-wash jeans from Coldwater Creek. They were $25 dollars off and still too freakin' expensive, but I bought them anyway. :biggrin:
