Surprise

Talk about a surprise. Stopped at the butchers Saturday to pick up three rib eyes for dinner and noticed a tray of filet mignons in the case. The rib eyes were $12.99 a pound and the filets were marked $9.99, hmm; butcher must have got a deal on them. The lady told me they all weighed out at seven ounces, I calculated they would be about $14.00 so I ordered three of them; hey, I know a deal when I see it. When I handed the package to the check out person she told me the total was $29.97, HUH, how much do those things weigh? She pointed out that they were not sold by weight but by the piece, Oh; with other people in line and not wanting to embarrass myself by looking like a cheapskate I went ahead and bought them.

Should have used Macro mode.





Wrapped them in bacon and slapped them on a 550 degree grill








Now some folks are going to think that is too rare, at $22.82 per pound I sure as hell was not going to shrink them.

I'm not sure what I'd do under the same circumstances.

They really look like they were worth it, though.

Truth be told we prefer the rib eyes but what the hell, if you can get choice filets for $9.99 a pound you go for it.
