Filet Mignon with a Whiskey Peppercorn Cream Sauce


What a beautiful day today was! 72 degrees and the perfect day for my husband and I to have an extended weekend to ourselves to celebrate our 7-year anniversary. I bought some filet mignon that was on manager sale about a month ago and froze it to use just for tonight. It turned out amazing and the whiskey peppercorn cream sauce was a wonderful addition. Unfortunately, I didn't have much time so I just drizzled some of the sauce on top and took a quick picture. It really wouldn't have been a romantic dinner with my camera flashing away and me asking my husband to wait to eat until I get a good shot lol!
