2018 Austria GP: Chicken Schnitzel and Egg Noodles

My real proud moment of this weekend was having both my parents and my husband's parents under one roof, all eating chocolate cake. I love having family near enough to visit, who wish to spend time together, and who can all enjoy a little cake on a Sunday afternoon. 

Sachertorte

For Austria, I had to make the famous Sachertorte. It turned out well enough given I had never made glaze before. All I can say is that it was a tasty mess. And that the cake itself was scrumptious. See the post and recipe: Sachertorte. (coming soon!)

Chicken Schnitzel and Noodles

For our meal for Austria I kept it simple. I made my tried and true Chicken Schnitzel and a side of Egg Noodles with Mushroom Butter Sauce. This meal comes together fast and is much more than you would expect for the effort involved, especially with a nice grainy mustard to dip your chicken in.
