Date home!

Today I am heading back to glad that I got up and ran this morning, but I am thinking about what an awesome date we our home over the weekend!  

My hubby works super hard at work and at home....he never quits really and I felt that he needed a treat!  I found a couple of recipes on Pinterest and I went to town....

This was an amazing meal...I have NEVER cooked a filet mignon but I will do it was TOO easy!  

I covered both sides with Kosher salt and ground pepper, then seared it in olive oil and butter over HIGH heat for a few minutes per side.  Then into the oven for about 10 minutes...or to your liking of redness/ was SO good!  

Then, on the top was a butter compote with fresh parsley, thyme, garlic, and lemon melted into the steak....YUM!  The twice baked potato was easy too, but I have done that before.  

Must pair it with a good Cab....the bottle of wine I got at whole foods was ridigulously good!  I am going to have to pick this up again sometime...pricey but well worth it.  

We played some Dave Matthews in the background and my littles watched a show and had a dinner date with a TV tray in the back room....they were good!

Look at this cuteness!!!  Wouldn't you make him a nice meal too?  
This is a picture we took at the A's game over spring break....he got us free tickets and signed himself up to work OT (he knew he would enjoy the game more, lol).  We ended up in a luxary was ridiculous!  What a fun game!
