Thanks again for having the gang over. We should really do this once a month. Cheers to all.

I think we made fine guinea pigs don't you think? I enjoyed it a lot.

I like Vic's idea and I think I can host one of them. My specialty is lasagna with 3 different cheeses.

I'm glad you guys were all able to make it; I never would have got to try that dish if I wasn't cooking for a crowd!

I think I will try doing some individual wellingtons at some point.

I was telling Heli that was the tastiest beef I think I've ever had. Tender and juicy, I guess wrapping it with the pastry really traps the moisture in. And I'm generally a medium-well beef eater! I think we'll have to start getting some beef from Costco, seems like it's usually pretty good.

Thanks Jim. I am a medium or medium-well guy myself, so I was not sure about medium rare.

This is the recipe I followed (more or less):

The beef was great and so was the company. It was a fun time for all.

I was stuck in the snow in front of your house on the way out.

I think Costco has some special deal with some beef farmers. Whatever cut we get from Costco it is pretty tender. Maybe the meat is just aged properly. I have had som ebeef aged 11 days and it was tough. Then I had some aged 21 days and the difference was amazing. The pork chops too are very good. A little thick for my liking but they stay moist when you cook them.

I am a medium rare guy and Rosanne is a rare meat eater. The rarer the better for her. I guess as they say opposites attract.

I was just putting on my gloves to push you when I saw that you had rocked 'er out.
