June 11th of this year was a really hard day for my family. It would have been my parent’s 45th wedding anniversary. If mom had been able to make it to June, we were going to throw a big party for them, as if it had been they’re 50th, because we knew mom wasn’t going to live to see their 50th. Unfortunately, mom didn’t make it to their 45th. She passed away 4 months shy of it. So, in honor of the anniversary, and the party we would have had, Dad, Carrie and I went out to a really really nice dinner.
We each ordered fabulous appetizers:
- From LtoR: Kobe Chili with Filet and Corn Bread, Mini Beef Wellingtons, Scotch Eggs
And an amazing entree:
- Filet Mignon and Softshell Crab Cake Oscar, served over Mascarpone Mashed Potatoes
Carrie and Dad had wine and I had a mixed drink.
We talked about the past.
We talked about the future.
We talked about mom.

This is another recipe that I found at All Recipes, and the edits I made to it are from one of the comments. The steak in this is so yummy and tender, and the sauce is great! You can serve it over pasta, but I prefer to serve it over mashed potatoes. There’s just something about steak and potatoes being together
My only complaint about this dish is that it may not be “kid-friendly” if say… you have a kiddo that doesn’t like “sauce” on anything. Ketchup is just fine, but no… no sauce please and thank-you! However, if you are serving this for a group of friends (who hopefully don’t mind sauce!) they will be astounded at your culinary prowess, I promise!
