Shopping in the pantry -- found a can of Hormel turkey chili with beans that I bought at the beginning of the pandemic -- had half a can over half a baked potato, a side salad and half a can of pears (also pandemic stocking). Had one piece of dark chocolate and a cup of peppermint tea. Nothing exciting but trying to avoid going to the grocery store.

Looks fantastic, as usual. As I read I thought, "Hmmm, I have never in my life had filet mignon." Where I live at least, it almost never goes on sale, but beyond that, I would just be afraid of over-cooking it and ruining something that should be a splurge. How did you grill it and how long did it take? Have you ever cooked it any other way? Details, please!

Anyway, tonight I tried something new based on this recipe: https://cafedelites.com/crispy-boneless-chicken-thighs/ . It's basically boneless, skinless chicken thighs with a garlic butter sauce (a bit of butter, some minced garlic, a bit of cooking wine, a bit of chicken broth). My chicken didn't turn out crispy (maybe I didn't sear it long enough or at a high enough temp -- quite possible), but it was really delicious anyway ...



I had a regular-size piece and a small piece with mashed potatoes, so I still have probably a lunch and dinner left ...



Next time I make this, I'll add mushrooms and maybe onions to the sauce (and make a bit more of it simply by adding more chicken broth or my homemade chicken stock) -- someone suggested mushrooms in the comments at that web site, but I just forgot to add them tonight.

Anyway, it's nice to have a new recipe for my old standby, chicken. And it took only about 20 minutes to cook!

You food looks great and I’m sure it tasted great as well!

I prefer filet mignon since it one of the healthiest cuts of beef with very little to no fat at all. It’s definitely expensive but not something we have that often.

On a hot grill at about 400 degrees, I cook it for about 5 minutes on each side for medium rare and then let it rest for 5 minutes or so. You can place a cube of butter on each side when grilling it or wrap a piece of bacon (with toothpicks) around the perimeter of the beef to encourage some flare up and charing, if desired!

LOL, I think I just drooled.

Thanks, Rickcin!
