Filet Mignon with Caramelized Onions
Grilled Spicy Parmesan Potatoes
White Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Cooking time: 35 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     I chose tenderloin for this, but get any cut you like and as nice as budget allows. Use the rest of the onion for Day 1.

Filet Mignon with Caramelized Onions

Total time: 35 minutes
     With a lovely piece of flavorful, tender filet mignon this is truly marvelous main course. But the savory-sweet onions will make even a lesser cut shine.

Note:   Could be done under the broiler (grill) or quickly pan fried over high heat for about the same time.

Roast Spicy Parmesan Potatoes

Total time: 30 minutes 
     Simple, grilled or roasted potatoes are perfect with equally simple, grilled meats.  These have a light kick and are finished with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
