What's for Dinner Wednesday~

Okay, it was actually what was for dinner Monday and Tuesday, but I digress.

Slow-Roasted Filet of Beef with basil parmesan mayonnaise accompanied by Scalloped Potatoes.

Oh so good (the first time and the second time around).


The filet of beef recipe can be found here. And, the scalloped potato recipe here.

Since there are only two of us, we opted for 4 filet tenderloin steaks that we secured with a skewer. Hence why we got two hearty meals from this dish.  We normally serve a peppered beef tenderloin at Christmas with  horseradish sauce, but I am considering using the basil mayo this year as it was quite delicious and the green color would be quite festive.

My apologies for the lack of posts as of late, but we were enjoying spending time with our girls!  Time spent together is few and far between these days.

Have a blessed week my friends!

Scalloped potatoes: what's not to love about 'em?

You make the best dinners! My husband would be in heaven if I made steaks more often. :)

One thing I rarely make anymore is potatoes, but I made mashed potatoes for Melissa this weekend - her favorite. I love scalloped potatoes and still can't make them like my mom's. I will try your recipe sometime :-)

Looks yummy, however you can NOT change Christmas dinner! That's my favorite dish I only get once a year and last year because of the flu I only got to enjoy two bites :(

You are such a good cook!
Do you plan your menus by the week?
My husband is so tired of baked chicken.
