Looking back, this year has been quite busy.
My business is improving and I love what I do.
In the end... I guess it's true, hard work pays off :)

Seeing as today is the last day in 2013 and I doubt Minted will
make any last minute announcements, it appears that Petite Papier
ended up in 3rd place in overall 2013 design challenge wins.
I'm quite happy with the results & hope to in 2014.

That being said, there are so many amazing, talented designers
in the Minted community and I [honestly] am just tickled
to be a part of such an amazing group of people
whom I've grown to adore!! Happy 2014 Minties!

and... Happy New Year to all my family & friends!!
XO -Erin

Over the weekend, Reilly severely cut her foot.
Mommy had to let Daddy take care of it.

An hour later the doorbell rang and two neighborhood 
boys handed Cooper a note for Reilly...

So cute! No?

1 tsp butter
4 pork loin chops (with bone), 1 inch thick, trim all visible fat
1/2 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped shallots
1 cup fat free chicken stock
10 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms
1 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp chopped, fresh parsley

In a large frying pan heat the butter over moderately low heat. 
Season pork with salt and pepper. 
Raise heat to medium and add the chops to the pan and sauté for 7 minutes. 
Turn and cook until chops are browned and done to medium, about 7-8 minutes longer. 
Remove the chops and put in a warm spot.

Add shallots to the pan and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. 
Add the stock to deglaze the pan, stir in the mustard, 1 tbsp parsley, then add mushrooms, 
season with fresh pepper and cook about 3 minutes, or until mushrooms are done. 
Put the chops on a platter and pour the mushroom sauce over the meat, top with remaining parsley.
