Recipe by Oolala

Ripped a page out a magazine years ago. What a great picture. It says "dinner classic: tender cutlets, gently browned, smothered in a flavorful mushroom-vermouth sauce. They show it on a platter with red cherry tomatoes and garnished with parsley.

It's very nice. I chose not to saute the cherry tomatoes since they are terrific just to pop raw at this time of year. I'm more inclined to saute cherry tomatoes to give them more flavor when they are not entirely in season. Thanks for posting this; I enjoyed trying the recipe.
