typically, mr. c handles sunday dinner. he usually grills and whips up delicious side dishes. this last sunday, however, he was a little preoccupied with a little ol' football game. {the cardinals were in a play-off game.} and, i wanted to try a new dish... beef wellington. i saw tyler florence make it on "tyler's ulitmate". it looked difficult and fancy. i couldn't wait to give it a whirl. this was a big undertaking for me because i rarely cook beef. {that's mr. c's area of expertise.} not only do i seldom cook it...i seldom eat it. but, i was excited to try something new. i spent most of the day in the kitchen.
i served a green peppercorn sauce over the beef wellington. a sauce that i had to flambe. {do you see the flames coming out of the pan?} it all turned out beautiful. i also made a macaroni and cheese souffle and simple garden salad to accompany the meal. and randi made some yummy chocolate brownies for dessert. {all by herself.} my parents helped us consume all of this lovely food. i'm pretty sure everyone went to bed with happy, full bellies.

i have always wanted to make that too (or eat it i should say) we tried makin it when we first got married but we didn't have money to but the right cuts of meat. it was still good, but i bet yours was to die for!!
