First Home Cooked Meal

Have you ever taken advantage of mark downs at the grocery store? Ralphs had a three day sale a while back on filet mignon and lobster tail. My fiancé is a big meat eater and a fan of seafood. We concur on our food choices when it comes to meat but being allergic to seafood, he's alone on that one. As I wanted to be a good fiancée that day, I offered to make him some filet mignon and lobster tail.

Here's what I whipped up in the kitchen.

homemade sour cream mashed potatoes, lobster tail and filet mignon

My happy customer eating his meal.

I've been cooking more often nowadays so I decided to impart a couple of my recipes. I will add a food category to my blog so check up on future entries for some step by step food guides.

Before I forget, this is what we had for breakfast the next morning.

A turkey sandwich and leftover sour cream mashed potatoes topped with mixed cheese

  4. @Curves ahead makeup Thank you! I like cooking so I hope to keep up with myself.

    @Novie Thanks! It took me a while to cook that steak. It turned out really succulent so he was happy.

    @Vajarl Seriously? Cooking calms me down and Jordan knows when to intervene so I'm happy. I don't like making a mess in the kitchen. I learned from my mom and siblngs. :)

  5. Seems like you're quite the cook. I'd have no idea how to make anything you said except the turkey sandwich, I can whip one of those bad boys up in any Subways or Blimpies in long as the guy behind the counter isn't new.

  6. ^_^ wow what a dutiful wifey-to-be hehehe...the food photos are tempting, haven't had potatoes and filet mignon lately (yum!)
