Wizards First Rule

Richard Cypher’s decision to help a woman in the Upper Ven near the Boundary between the Midlands and Westland creates more trouble than first appears. The woman, Kahlan Amnell, seeks the help of a wizard in the Westland, and she brings with her dark news from the other side of the Boundary: Darken Rahl, Ruler of D’Hara, has brought down the Boundary between D’Hara and the Midlands. This menacing ruler continues his dead father’s quest for control by pressing war on the now vulnerable Midlands. Kahlan is attempting to find the great wizard who had left the Midlands for the Magic free Westlands due to the corruption of the government in his eyes, so as to have him Name a Seeker of Truth. The great wizard turns out to be Zeddicus Zu’l Zorrander, Richard’s longtime friend, who then proceeds to name Richard the Seeker.

Poem of Life

For My Grandmother

Life is but a stopping place,

A pause in what’s to be,

A resting Place along the road,

to sweet eternity.

We all have differnt journeys

Different paths along the way,

We all wer meant to learn some things,

but never meant to stay …

Our destination is a place

Far greater than we know.

For some the hourney’s quicker,

For some the journey’s slow.

And when the journey finally ends,

We’ll claim a great reward,

And find an everlasting peace,

Together with the Lord.

Parmesan Chicken Cutlets

Chicken

Ingredients

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 large eggs

1 1/2 cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

1/4 cup grated Parmesan

1 tablespoon mustard powder

Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

4 small skinless, boneless chicken cutlets (about 1 1/2 pounds total), pounded to 1/4″ thickness

8 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1 lemon, halved

Preparation

Place flour in a shallow bowl. Beat eggs in a second shallow bowl. Combine panko, Parmesan, and mustard powder in a third shallow bowl and season mixture with salt and pepper.

Season chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off any excess. Transfer to bowl with beaten egg and turn to coat. Lift from bowl, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Coat with panko mixture, pressing to adhere. DO AHEAD: Chicken can be breaded 3 months in advance. Place between pieces of freezer paper or waxed paper and freeze in resealable freezer bags. Thaw before continuing.

Heat 6 tablespoons oil in a large heavy skillet or a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, cook cutlets, adding remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pan between batches, until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer cutlets to a paper towel-lined plate and season with salt. Serve with lemon.
