Description

The world of cigars opens up in a big way this August as get ready for this year’s Jungle Jim’s Cigar Festival. Taking Cigar Festover the Snake House at our Fairfield location, this is the premiere cigar event in the region, offering a unique and enticing take on the VIP experience as well as providing an expansive all-day general admission festival. Cigar culture is one of camaraderie, and our cigar experts from both locations are excited to be a part of it. Throughout the entirety of the festival, we’ll have hundreds of dozens of brands of our best cigars available for purchase. We’ve put together quite the collection between our two humidors and can’t wait to share them with so many of you.

On Friday, August 26, VIP ticket holders will head to the Snake House to hang out with industry pro’s and vendor reps from some of the most preeminent labels around. Enjoy a quieter, more indulgent time with one-on-one conversations and demonstrations, a VIP-sized swag bag filled with some of the finest items available to us for the event. We’ll have cold beverages and mixed drinks, along with food and music, so you can start this flavorful weekend in style. Even better, a VIP ticket is good for both days of the festival.

Then, on Saturday, August 27, General Admission ticket holders can spend the day (and we mean the whole day – we’re rockin’ and rollin’ from 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM) enjoying selections from many of the same vendors as the previous night. We’ll have games set up – cornhole and giant-sized beer pong, anyone? – as well as cold beverages, food on-site, live music and a few surprises.

So join us for an incredible weekend at Jungle Jim’s. The Snake House is ready, and we’re counting down the days.

Hurry and get your tickets before they sell out and your chance to attend Jungle Jim’s Cigar Festival goes up in smoke!

Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

Today’s Menu: Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet  w Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes and 005

Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market so after a light Breakfast I took over this morning. Just love that market, anything and about everything in stock. I especially love the Deli Department. They carry every Boar’s Head Product that’s out. Then any and all types of Cheese and Olives. Just an incredible place to shop. Back home did a load of laundry and then I got the cart out and pulled weeds around the house and Mom’s flower beds. For dinner tonight I prepared a Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet w/ Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

 

While at Jungle Jim’s International Market this morning I purchased some Veal Cutlets. They have the best Veal Panko Crusted Veal Cutlet  w Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes and 001anywhere around our area, so I always pick some up when I’m there. To prepare it I got the big three out to bread these beautiful Veal Cutlets; Flour, Egg Beaters, and Panko Bread Crumbs. I seasoned the Veal with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then rolled them in Flour. I then took some Hungarian Paprika and Seasoned the Egg Beater’s with it, and dipped the veal Cutlets in it shaking off any excess. For the last coating I rolled the in Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko, pressing them in the Crumbs firmly to make sure the Cutlets were completely covered. These were thick cutlets so I had to fry them a little bit longer than you would normally would fry Veal. I fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 5 minutes per side. The coatings gave it a fantastic golden brown coating and the cutlet was tender and moist, and seasoned just right. You could cut by using a fork! Only had half of it, saved the other half for breakfast in the morning.
 

 
Then for a side dish I prepared Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes. I had come across the Jalapeno Cheese PotatoesBaked Parmesan Perch Jalapeno Cheese Fried Potatoes 003 some time back in an issue of Cuisine at Home Magazine. Made some changes from the original recipe. I used Simply Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes, Canola Oil instead of Peanut Oil, Scallions, 1 Jalapeno (sliced), Sea Salt and Ground Pepper, Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese. To prepare it; Add the Canola Oil to a Cast Iron Skillet and heat on medium. Prepare the Diced potatoes according to the package instructions. About midway through the cooking process add the Scallions and Jalapeno; then season with Sea Salt & Pepper. Off the heat sprinkle with the Sargento Reduced Fat Mexican Style Shredded Cheese. This has turned out to be one of my favorite Potato Side Dishes. Everything just comes together to make this dish the perfect Potato Dish!

 

 

For the other side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots. For dessert later a bowl of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Bean Ice Cream topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge Topping.

Veal
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Veal is the meat of young cattle (calves), as opposed to meat from older cattle. Though veal can be produced from a calf of either sex and any breed, most veal comes from male calves (bull calves) of dairy cattle breeds.
