Save the Neck for Me, Clark

This really has nothing to do with the holidays, but has everything to do with what Steph and I do when we ship the kids off on a Saturday night.

Applewood smoked white cheddar, manchego, and Saga bleu cheese...

...with Mumm Blanc de Noirs
And I'm really not much of a red meat eater, but we did succumb to some awfully good-looking filet mignon from Fresh Market. Vegetarians, avert your eyes. Pan-searing with some sauteed spinach...
Genius at work.
Some Saga Bleu Cheese Maitre D'Hotel butter on the filet, and onto the plate with rosemary-roasted new potatoes.
Medium rare, of course:

Main course wine: Seghesio Zinfandel, Sonoma County 2007. #10 on this year's Wine Spectator top 100. Like drinking a bowl full of berries and spice. Perfectly balanced, finish goes on for days.

Why do you have to do that to me. That steak looks AWESOME. Gina will be especially jealous, since she can't eat meat mid-rare while she is pregnant. I want to make this my background on my computer it looks so good.

Your meals put mine to shame. A feast for the eyes and the palate.
