Filet Mignon - an update
Just wanted to give everyone an update on our dinner Saturday night (I called it semi-fine dining). It was wonderful!
We ended up buying a beef tenderloin that the butcher cut into steaks, grilled on my electric grill (was easier than I thought). I made a wine reduction for the first time that was excellent. I bought 2 bottles of expensive wine, my husband got cloth napkins in fall colors (from Wal-Mart), candles and music. We also had scalloped potatoes brought by one of our friends and vegetables steamed in the microwave. Dessert was store-bought brownies and banana cream pie. After-dinner drinks were also served.
We had the best time, and we did celebrate life, which was the most important thing.
I want to thank everyone for their great suggestions.
