Lover's Beef Burgundy Filet
LOW FAT ALERT: You can cut way back on the canola oil, and it still turns out GREAT! I eliminated the wine/butter sauce completely. Instead, I put additional wine in a saucepan and added fresh sliced mushrooms. After coming to a boil, a package of "fat free" brown gravy sauce was added (with a cup or so of water because the wine cooked down). Kroger sells a "beef blend" herb package (oregano, chives, and rosemary). I chopped up some of that and added it to the gravy mixture. I let the gravy come to a slow boil and then let it simmer while the steaks cooked on the George Foreman grill. I served the steaks (which I marinated for 45 min.) with baked potatoes and steemed broccoli. The mushroom/gravy mixture was TERRIFIC with the meat and potatoes. My husband ate with a look of rapture on his face... he said that this was one cow who "definitely did not die in vain".

Brussels Sprouts with Grapes
Hmm... although my husband liked it, this will not be a "do over". There's a time and a place for brussel sprouts and grapes, but the same pot is not it. To put it another way... I like chocolate, and I also like niblet corn, but I'm not going to cook them together either.

Pesto Chicken Florentine
This was terrific; however, I tweaked it somewhat.... left out the pesto (pine nut allergy), marinated chix strips in Italian salad dressing for 30 min., sauteed a chopped onion with the garlic cloves, added fresh sliced mushrooms to the spinach... FYI... it is a wonder of physics how spinach can cook down to ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Go ahead and buy a 10 oz. bag even if you wonder how in the world everything will fit in your skillet. Trust me... IT WILL COOK DOWN. I made the Alfredo sauce mix with 1% milk to lower the fat content. The leftovers don't get funky overnight in the fridge... still tasty the next day. This is "company worthy".
