that looks good.

I got carried away a bit for Mother's Day. Instead of going out I decided to cook for the family.  I picked up a 4-pack of filet minions from BJs, dry aged them for a few days in the fridge, and cooked them in a cast iron pan in butter for 4 minutes a side before putting them in the oven for about 7 minutes. I served them with a peppercorn-cream-brandy-rosemary sauce.

For side dishes I just baked a few potatoes and roasted some Brussel sprouts that I first marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

And as a special treat I made Robert Irvine's smoked pork belly Mac and cheese (https://chefirvine.com/recipes/smoked-pork-belly-mac-cheese-as-seen-on-restaurant-impossible). While it was fantastic, I didn't think it through - the recipe calls for two pounds of elbow macaroni, we only had four of us, so I've got enough Mac and Cheese left over to feed our neighbors.
