Filet Mignon – cabin meal

This weekend we had a cabin getaway with my husbands aunt & uncle. Next the great company, the highlight of the cabin is the delectable food. Saturday was one of the best yet!

The main course was filet mignon, (fresh from the local butcher), crispy top potato cake with cheese and a fusion salad of chick peas, mushrooms & baccon. Absolutely Delish!

Oat, chocolate chip and coconut cookies
