Theodore went out with some of his friends tonight. Paula and I had the evening to ourselves. That was very pleasant. I took two filet mignon steaks from the freezer. We had some potatoes in the cupboard along with an acorn squash in the refrigerator. In other words, we had all the ingredients for a tasty and “romantic” meal since it was just the two of us, good food and good wine. I cooked the steaks on the grill until they were medium-rare. The acorn squash was cooked in the oven. We stuffed it with some brown sugar, breadcrumbs, nutmeg, butter and chopped walnuts. It was quite tasty. Best of all, just having the evening together made for a great way to start my two weeks of winter break!
