Christmas dinner

We had a nice relaxing Christmas holiday this year. The tree was trimmed, lit and looking great.

I made filet mignon for our dinner, with whole roasted sweet onions and rosemary.

 My version of a bloomin’ onion:

I Split one sweet Vidalia onion in half, doused it with extra virgin olive oil,  some salt and pepper,  and lots of fresh chopped rosemary.

Then I roasted it for an hour at 375 degrees until it got all carmelized and soft, a wonderful side to a perfectly cooked medium rare filet mignon.

For dessert, a Cranberry Blueberry pie baked from scratch , the perfect Christmas pie!

Ta da, baked to perfection, golden , hot, bubbly, and rustic! 

Just the way I like my pie’s.

Topped with some vanilla bean ice cream and I’m in a pie state of mind!  

 Yum Pie!!
