Paneed Saltine veal

Veal.  You can add that to the list of foods I knew nothing about until I met my husband. My mom grew up on a farm, and there was no way a piece of veal was going to make it into our house.  Had you told me I was eating baby cow when I was a kid, I'd be devastated.  Thankfully, I'm over that now! I love paneed meat, and veal being so tender is a perfect cut to cook this way.  This was the first thing my husband cooked for me.  He was at his grandparents house and they were so proud of him.  I really was fooled into thinking he cooked!
