Pork Tonkatsu w/ Watermelon Tomato Salad

I was looking to cook something new and came across this recipe from Holy moly. Who knew tomatoes and watermelon mixed with a dijon dressing could taste so good! The pork tonkatsu is REALLY good.

I found Panko at a local Asian/organic supermarket. I wouldn't think it would be a problem if you used regular bread crumbs. It will probably be a little heavier, but I'm guessing it will still taste really good.

Umm. Yes. My pork tonkatsu has a hole in it. The photo on Epicurious is prettier. Hey man. I design clothes, not food. 

Homemade Lemonade

I learned this from my mom because she likes to make everything fresh.

4 slices lemon (take out the seeds and add more slices if you want more zest to your juice)
1 quart water
1 quart container (I recycled a juice container)
1-2 Tablespoons of honey (depends on how sweet you want it)

Boil water in a pot. Once it boils, add lemons slices to the water. Allow it to simmer on low for a few minute then turn off the stove range and let the lemon slices sit in hot water for about 30 minutes, or until it cools. Add water and slices to the container. Add honey and shake it up. That's it! Finished.

side note: My mom said that she doesn't like to boil too long because it will take away the vitamin C. I agree. Also, as I was writing this, I thought of something! Add mint leaves!! Hellz yeah.


Recycled container from when I bought organic grapejuice
I drank half of it before I took the photo. It's damn tasty!
