In other news, everyone in my house including myself has come down with a bad case of the crud and is in a very bad mood. For Christmas Eve I decided to make beef tenderloin AGAIN, because Mason didn’t like how I made it with the reduction sauce at Thanksgiving and wants his “spicy meat” instead.
Here’s how you make what Mason calls Spicy Meat:

fleurdeselPat 2″ thick filet mignons dry with paper towels, rub with olive oil and crust in a equal mixture of fleur de sel and coarse black pepper. Sear on medium high heat in a hot skillet or dutch oven, remove from heat, top with a pat of butter then place pan in a 400º oven. Cook 12 minutes for medium rare, 16 minutes for medium.

It’s extremely quick and easy to make, but incredibly delicious. You must use fleur de sel, no other salt tastes right. I buy in it bulk and keep it at the shop for sale, just so others can experience its wonderfulness.
I get to finish up Christmas preparations and cooking while on decongestants. This could get interesting.

    So sorry you are sick for Christmas. Hope you get better soon! I am really sorry I will be traveling on the 26th and will miss your sale!! I saw what some other people bought last year and it was sure worth coming.

    The filet mignon sounds delicious & easy to make, especially for the two of us. Might have to make a shop run for fleur de sel. Hope everyone recovers from the crud in time for happy Christmas.

    I hope everyone is feeling much better in a few days so they can enjoy Christmas!
    It just doesn’t feel like we’re that close to Christmas — the weather has been so weird. I noticed they have taken the snow chances out of the forecast for next week, so maybe after the new year, we’ll get some colder weather.

    Will have to remember fleur de sel when I am at the shop for the After Christmas Sale
    Also now have to get a tenderloin next time I am shopping for meat.
    Hope you feel better soon.
