2 – Press 2 teaspoons of garlic evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast. Press thyme evenly over roast.

Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash

Today’s Menu: Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had a mix of snow, sleet, and rain today. Had a high of 37 degrees. Bitter cold weather moving in over the weekend they say. After Breakfast I did a load of laundry and later cleaned and straightened the Pantry. I hired a an Awning and Roof Company to put braces underneath the top of the Car Port Awning. There’s been 4 houses where the Car Ports have crumbled because of the heavy wet snows. Plus it’s very old so hopefully this will prevent it from collapsing. For Dinner tonight its a Bison Filet Mignon w/ Oven Roasted Cauliflower and Roasted Butternut Squash.

 

 

 


When having Buffalo (Bison) I usually have Wild Idea Buffalo but tonight I tried the Buffalo Gal Bison Filet Mignon Steak. I had a Gift Certificate for Buffalo Gal so I thought I would give it a try. I prepared it the same way as I do the Wild Idea Buffalo. Salt, Pepper, Extra Light Olive Oil, and in a Cast Iron Skillet.

 

 

 

 

 


To prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. In a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 1 minute each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. Wow, what a juicy and tender Bison Steak! Excellent flavor, I will be having these again!

 

 

 

 

I had purchased a package of Cauliflower from Kroger the other day. We love Cauliflower, I just don’t prepare it near enough. To prepare it I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and Butter. Then to prepare it Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spread the cauliflower on a baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven, turning once with a spatula, until golden brown at the edges and cooked to desired tenderness, about 20 minutes or so. You can drizzle it with melted butter or a light coating of Wing Sauce before serving. Cauliflower is so delicious, even an easy recipe like this!

 


Then for one side I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, Bacon Pieces, 1 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash. What a Meal! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

When buying Cauliflower…….

When purchasing cauliflower, look for a clean, creamy white, compact curd in which the bud clusters are not separated. Spotted or dull-colored cauliflower should be avoided, as well as those in which small flowers appear. Heads that are surrounded by many thick green leaves are better protected and will be fresher. As its size is not related to its quality, choose one that best suits your needs.
