I'm catching up on my "Treats of the Week," and, as I do, I wish I still had this treat to feast upon.
Recently, Bertie and I visited my parents' house and were welcomed with a lovely meal of filet mignon, cooked and seasoned to perfection and topped with rounds of compound butter.
Along with this, we enjoyed garlic-horseradish mashed potatoes and a beautiful casserole of squash which bubbled with cheesy goodness beneath a tender-baked top. The casserole had a souffle-like consistency and rich flavor which was quite a grand accompaniment to the flavors of the beef.
A handsome salad was a cooling counterpoint to the dinner.
Then, for dessert, we enjoyed a beautiful dish of homemade banana pudding with vanilla cookies. The custard was sheer perfection, flavored with slices of fresh banana and topped with delicate swirls of freshly whipped cream.
Come back tomorrow for Part II of this week's "Treat of the Week."
