For dinner Saturday, we had filet mignon and giant shrimp, marinated in extra-virgin La Conda Ranch olive oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, rice wine vinegar, and crushed red peppers. There was a sufficient amount of filet mignon remaining after we became sated that we were able to enjoy filet mignon, fried eggs, and sourdough toast for brunch on Sunday.

Sunday evening, we had sautéed calamari steaks and cauliflower, broccoli, and radiatori in an herb and butter sauce. We enjoyed a bottle of Crane Lake Chardonnay with this meal. The wine was on sale at Sav-Mor Foods for $1.98 a bottle—an incredible discount from the list price of $10.00 a bottle. The wine was so delightful, I intend to purchase several bottles during my next visit to the market, should it remain available at that price!
