Filet Mignon, Sour Cream and Chive Scalloped Potatoes, and a Treat...
Scored a small beef tenderloin, at the unheard of price of $4.99 a lb.! Beef tenderloin does not have to be prime beef- the lowest quality one is still quite tender... My only "Beef" with tenderloin is that while very tender, it isn't as flavorful as some cuts of beef... Still, there is very little waste, and a great meal can be had from this cut of meat! I paired it with home made scalloped redskin potatoes, in a sour cream/chive side dish.. I use fresh, chopped onions, a white sauce, with parsley, fresh chives,sea salt & coarse ground pepper, and sour cream as a sauce- and of course, sliced potatoes! Covered and baked for 1 hour at 360F, then uncovered and baked for another 1/2 hour, they are tender and flavorful. My wife ate about a pound of them on her own! The banana bread is a dessert version, with chocolate chips in it.... Put peanut butter on it and Elvis will appear!
Wife is going to a play in town- Willy Wonka... I've got a golden ticket... Gene Wilder was Willy Wonka- Johnny Depp sucked!
