Meal No. 2053: Filet Mignon with Madeira Mushroom Sauce


When Mookie and Kristen were here on Wednesday night, I was feeling like making a sort of fancy feast: filet mignon in a Madeira mushroom sauce, Brussels sprouts gratin, and homemade creamy mashed potatoes. I think we were all delighted and amazed at how really very good it all turned out, as if somehow we'd taken it to a whole 'nother level on a basic weekday night.
